In June, there was a referendum. You might remember it? The people gave a clear indication that they wanted to leave the European Union. To give the departed Mr Cameron his due, he delivered on his promise to let us have a say in our future. The House of Commons passed a bill that authorised the referendum. Parliament had it’s say and the elected house decided to let us vote.
Yesterday the House of Lords decided that that decision should be set aside. They decided that our PM – who you will remember has a clear mandate – should not be allowed to invoke article 50 without a vote in the Commons. They also decided that when the negotiations are concluded on the terms of exit, the Commons should have another vote. In their words, to do otherwise would be ‘constitutionally unacceptable’.
Well, I’ll tell you what is constitutionally unacceptable – and that is having an unelected bunch of cunts telling the elected government that it cannot leave an undemocratic organisation run by more unelected cunts in defiance of the will of the people clearly expressed in a referendum which was authorised by a vote from a bunch of cunts that were actually elected.
The Lords are quick to point out that the referendum result is merely ‘advisory’ but fail to recognise that the decisions of the Lords are advisory as well. The PM is free to ignore their advise and as a last resort can invoke the Parliament Act to overrule them.
This is treachery and treason on a grand scale. If ever there was an example of democracy being ignored, this is it. If ever there was a better justification for abolishing the Lords then I’m reaching to thinking of it.
Shame on them! Heads on poles on Westminster Bridge is a picture that comes to mind…
