House of Lords Shambles.
House of Lords will be condemed as a waste of space if they back down in their attempt to stop unfair and greedy Tory tax credit cuts next week.
Nobody seems to be commenting on why it is that the Lords are able to introduce a “Fatal Motion”, and the reasons why it is possible; as I understand it, a “Fatal Motion” can only be brought against legislation which had not been included in either a Manifesto or in The Queens Speech when opening Parliament – therefore, legislation upon which the electorate cannot have considered when voting for their Government. The purpose of such a motion is quite clear and constitutional, to stop a Government from enacting legislation for which it has no mandate from the electorate, and which may have decided the electorate to vote otherwise had they been made aware of it. Ultimately, it is the Government who has acted unconstitutionally and is attempting to put through laws for which they have no mandate from the people they are elected to serve.
Its not the first time and wont be the last either, but English voters are to blame for electing the Torris back in and they will so again because there not very bright, while we are in the union with them our anti-austerity voice can not be heard therefore we need Scottish home-rule now?
WE ALL HEARD CAMERON SAY ON THE TV DEBATES’
WE ARE NOT CUTTING TAX CREDITS, I PROMISE!!!!!
Makes one proud to be British, NOT!
