lord willets
Started by: baker boy (15249) Report abuse
this chap wants old people to pay through extra taxes, so that we can provide the young with some cash.
with respect me lord i do already ,the ones i support are called grandchildren and i will be blowed if i,m paying for any one elses off spring.
does any one think like myself that shutting down the house of lords could go a very long way towards these costs.

Shut the house of lords not one of them were elected by the people this is part of the reason we want out of europe because the MEP's were not elected by us but dictate to us

The House of Lords is an absolute disgrace. They get £300 each a day to attend. That could go to the NHS.

Sign the petition to abolish the house of lords. I think it is on the gov.uk petitions site.

i paid tax when I worked; I'm paying tax again on my pension and paying tax again because i saved some. I'm certainly not paying more tax to give it to young people. Yes boot them all out!

And, Kath, more taxes when you die.

Now my advice for those who die Declare the pennies on your eyes.

you work hard all your life, ask for nothing.bring your family up without making the dole/benefits your sole income and what happens, some muppet on 300 quid a day tax free i might had, wants to pee on us from a great height.
he can stick his ideas where the sun dont shine.

Totally agree, baker boy. The House of Lords is an unelected club that's well past its sell-by date. Why should these pampered buffoons thwart [or try to thwart] the will of the people? I've signed the petition on-line. The House of Lords is like dog muck on your shoe - stinks but hard to get rid of.

Thanks for the info of the petition - I've just signed.

So very true that it's just used as a plush London club, with a generous award merely for attending.
