The Tories’ disdain for democracy knows no bounds as Boris Johnson moves to stuff unelected and rejected Tory members into the House of Lords and the UK Cabinet.
With no democratic legitimacy or public accountability, peers should not be able to oversee entire government departments and determine peoples’ futures. The House of Lords must be abolished.
Johnson is creating a private club of unelected Lords and Ladies who will dictate Scotland’s future rather than enable us to decide it for ourselves. The Westminster system is broken, and we must escape it.
