Socialist Worker

House of Lords? Off with their heads!

Issue No. 2137

One is in jail for fraud. One is a convicted perjurer. One is a convicted arsonist and insurance fraudster. Some 92 are there only because of their thieving ancestors.

There are a few bishops and a few former cabinet ministers and no shortage of tax avoiders. The worst are up to their necks in corruption.

The House of Lords doesn’t need reforming – it needs abolishing.
