House of Lords

113 Lords view for second referendum!

113 Lords have taken the undemocratic view that we keep asking until the voters give us the answer that we want.

Well, that is what it looks like.

2 Tory Peers, 22 Labour and 89 Liberal Democrats, have voted for a second referendum before the UK can leave the European Union.

Fortunalty they lost, but what would happen in they could just keep calling elections until they are happy with the result?

  1. The Lib Dems should stop calling themselves “Democrats” because, clearly, they are not.

    If they were true democrats they would accept the result. I didn’t have much regard for Cameron but I give him credit for accepting the result and not seeking to gainsay it like Farron is.

    My own view of the referendum is that the Lord was showing great mercy to this nation in sparing us from a possible situation in few years time whereby we would have been so enmeshed in the EU we wouldn’t have been allowed to leave. (Rather like the Southern States in 1861).

    • You are too right.

      Speaking of parties what are badly named, I hear David Cameron a few months ago talking about ISIS and he called it, “the so-called Islamic state.” He then went on to talk about the fact that ISIS is opposed to, “our liberal conservative… something,” I guess if they have a liberal world view, his party could have been called, ‘the so-called conservative party.’
