I want my country back

In 1066, William the Bastard stole my country from Harold.

By 2016, we've completely stripped all power from the monarchy. But the non-elected House of Lords is still able to veto legislation passed by the Commons. This is undemocratic.

I don't mind the monarchy (although Charles has a penchant for sticking his ears in where they ought to be kept out). But I do object to an unelected House of Lords controlling my life.

I want my country back. I want an elected House of Lords.
