Hoey: We can't let unelected Lords derail Brexit

Labour Leaver and honorary Bad Girl of Brexit Kate Hoey, slammed the House of Lords ahead of yesterday’s votes in Parliament.

“This for me is a very important vote today…it’s absolutely crucial that we do not allow the Lords amendment to be carried,” she said.

“We either support the 17.4 million people who voted to Leave…or we’re going to allow people who really want to stop Brexit by using legal challenges and legal words to put this in doubt.”

She continued: “We will not decide to let the unelected Lords, full of ex-EU commissioners – full of people who have been funded by the European Union, to actually decide what we’re going to do.”
