The house of Lords is trying to restrict the ability to negotiate in order for brexit to fail. They aren’t acting for the people but are acting for their own greed!
The real problem is that the commons has been using the House of Lords as a dumping ground for far too long. Very few of the life peers are there on merit but mainly because they’ll do what they are told by whoever they owe their position to. Hence the return of Blair whose “reforms” made him impervious to their actions and ensured that when he rings the bell they all salivate.
Because the amendment says that there should be no Brexit without an agreement between the UK and the EU, this is clearly an attempt to hand power in the negotiations to the EU, because the PM would not have the power to walk away from it all and use WTO trading rules (which are perfectly acceptable rules and work well).
It is now quite clear that the intention of many Lords and MPs is to defy the result of the referendum, showing their utter contempt for the ‘democracy’ to which they only pay lip service. Their idea of ‘democracy’ is that which accords with their pre-determined plans, and anything else can be overruled.
The House of Lords is being sacrificed in this battle. It will not survive the backlash.
