I can understand London taxi drivers not knowing about the checks and balances that Britain instituted as a great example to the rest of the world, but a former Minister in the House of Lords?
Labour’s Baroness Symons said she would vote for a 100% appointed Lords, as an elected House would threaten the primacy of the Commons.
She said it would be “misleading to give the electorate the right to vote, without the right of the elected to deliver on that vote”.
Yes, the Noble Lady is arguing for an elected dictatorship. Why ever would you think otherwise?
