Parliament to debate referendum on abolishing the House of Lords

A reader’s comment to the previous post on interceding for Brexit reminded me I’d seen an item in Why Leave The EU? about a petition to Parliament and signed it. This official Petition to Parliament reads as follows:

Give the electorate a referendum on the abolition of the House of Lords

‘The House of Lords is a place of patronage where unelected and unaccountable individuals hold a disproportionate amount of influence and power which can be used to frustrate the elected representatives of the people.’

The government responds to petitions of over 10,000 signatories and this morning I received an update direct from UK Government and Parliament advising,

‘Parliament is going to debate the petition you signed – The debate is scheduled for 18 June 2018’.

This petition quickly shot through 140,000 signatories this morning and I’d urge you, if you’ve not already done so, to put intercessory prayer and prophetic declaration into effect and join me with other readers of this blog in signing this Petition:

Here’s a few objections in the Press, courtesy Jonathan Ely’s eye-opening news-feed Why Leave The EU? – it’s far superior to the British Brainwashing Cult aka BBC!

Let’s not overlook the European Research Group of powerful Eurosceptic conservative leaders led by Jacob Rees-Mogg, who are admonishing the PM that her latest customs union proposal could ‘collapse the Government’ (May warned Brexit deal will sink her).

UPDATE 3rd May: PM concedes EU-UK custom partnership plan ‘dead’ after Cabinet ministers turn on her during a crunch meeting of 11-strong Brexit sub-committee.

UPDATE 16th May: The Cabinet Office has responded to this petition – click to read.

The Petitions team in UK Government and Parliament advises that the petition has over 100,000 signatures and The Petitions Committee will consider it for a debate. Also, it can gather further evidence and press the government for action. The Committee is made up of 11 MPs, from political parties in government and in opposition. It is entirely independent of the Government. For more about the Committee click here.

  2. Interesting that Ian Kearns in the EU collapse article paints a similar picture to the prophesy you had previously alluded to. The sudden and shocking collapse.
