Petition To Abolish The Unelected House of Lords

Have you signed the Petition to “Give the electorate a referendum on the abolition of the House of Lords”?

The House of Lords is a place of patronage where unelected and unaccountable individuals hold a disproportionate amount of influence and power which can be used to frustrate the elected representatives of the people.

Already  there are 71,422 signatures and at 100,000 the Government will respond that this petition will be considered for debate in Parliament.

The House of Lords is being abused by our elected officials by filling it with cronies. It costs our taxpayers around £100 million a year (probably much more) The undemocratic House of Lords is the largest parliamentary chamber in any democracy. It is surpassed in size only by China’s National People’s Congress.
