(Before It's News)

I watched with horror the latest attempt by the unelected Lords to reverse the result of the people's vote to leave the EU They are deeply in love with their own importance and the sound of their own voices. They are clearly out of touch with ordinary people.

The June 23rd vote and the US November vote were votes against ruling political elites that are long past their sell by date. The leaping lords just don't get it especially my neighbour Paddy Ashdown who seems to be deeply in love with himself. on TV

We have to rid ourselves of this bloated useless elitist club that we have to pay a huge amount of money to maintain in lavish style. To use Henry II's words, can no one rid us of these turbulent Baronesses.

We heard a lot about the sovereignty of Parliament but nothing about the sovereignty of the British people. If we need representatives, and I do not think we do,why not just choose them at random from the population as a whole. At least then we would have a representative house.

Something has to be done about this place Mrs May. The USA gets by with 100 senators. Let us reduce the Lords to 80 and dispense with the other 800.
