Twice!

The House of Lords is ignoring what people voted for - hardly surprising when in their case they are so out-of-touch and in fairness just as Bread describes; full of cronies, tax dodgers and perverts".
Votes such as the one they recently took regarding the Withdrawal Act do not exactly persuade the average person in the street to view them any differently.
Fisheries bill goes back to the HoL tomorrow.... we are watching

What do you mean another reason that they are undemocratic? Surely the fact that they are unelected is the only reason you need for them to be undemocratic.

Britain falls short of being a democracy right there.

I can't and won't disagree with you there Bruce.

There are many here hoping that Boris does what he said he will do but even if not I think it's only a matter of time before we see huge changes to the HoL one way or another.
The public are getting increasingly frustrated with their unwarranted interference and lack of accountability in too many ways, such as the one I used earlier.
