The Lords have effectively signed their own death warrant by subverting the democratic will of the people as expressed in the Brexit referendum by co opting parliament and derailing it from its purpose of negotiating a withdrawal of the UK from the EU.
The government may not be able to act at the moment as it does not have a majority but the Lords will surely pay for their act of betrayal down the line and have effectively guaranteed their obsolescence and extinction - it is only a matter of time.
The Establishment it is clear will go to any lengths to thwart the democratic decision by the people in, let us not forget, what was the greatest voter turn out in the whole of British history - far greater in magnitude and scale than any general election, period.
As well as being a slap in the face of the electorate who were under the illusion that their representatives were elected to represent their views it has served as a great eye opener in that it was indeed just that, an illusion, a deception of the greatest order, placing a huge question mark over the very legitimacy of the British democratic system itself which hitherto has justifiably prided itself on being a beacon and example to the rest of the world as to how to conduct its affairs of State and whose sole ambition of other countries was to emulate it.
Forget all that now as we look at a constitutional crisis and an uncertain period of political strife and instability.
