“Question: what could be worse than 350-odd unelected members of the House of Lords voting to thwart the will of the 17.4million people who voted for Brexit? Answer: the way that some liberals in the UK hailed this anti-democratic ‘revolt’ in the Lords as if it was a noble blow for freedom and equality. To anybody with a democratic bone in their body, however, the peers’ vote to defeat the elected government on Brexit surely ought to end the argument for abolishing the unaccountable House of Lords. The Lords should have signed their own death warrant this week.” (03/03/17)
