Petition Action

Abolish the unelected House of Lords and replace it with an elected Upper House.

Petition Details

The House of Lords as a policy approving body should be changed from its current state as a wholly unelected body and replaced with a fully elected set of members. This election cycle should run in line with the general election cycle.

Additional Information

To have a number of unelected people approving or rejecting laws based on either their hereditary titles or through their achievements which have zero bearing on public policy is completely undemocratic.
Appointments to the house which represent only the ruling party are also undemocratic.
There should be an upper and lower house is any functioning democracy however both should be made up of wholly elected members. This will allow the ruling part of the day to be held to account fairly.
