The House of Lords, with no democratic legitimacy, stood firmly against the people’s decision to leave the European Union, and continually invented devious ways to prevent it. The country has outgrown the House of Lords. The UK needs a better form of government, directly accountable to the voters. UKIP would move on and change politics for the better. UKIP would abolish the House of Lords and get rid of the undemocratic, unelected, outdated second chamber.
