    Dunno, but I think you'll find most people who voted remain would agree that person was as delusional as brexiters currently are - crowing as though any other result was likely.

    I'm sure I know which it was.

    Anyway, you are correct in that the Lords may well put a stop to it. Obviously that will vote them into history but that will take time and as many are on their death bed they won't care.

    I hope the Lords does block it, a GE and constitutional reform is essential.

    1) I don't think they will
    2) They can't anyway - the government can force the bill through despite them. The Parliament Acts - UK Parliament

    It's outrageous how MPs and the lords are bullied into accepting the brexit bill
    48% voted against Brexit and many people did not vote or were not allowed to vote because they were under 18 These have to be taken into consideration. So let's hope the Lords are not as scared for the bullies as the MPs and give it a real hard time

    Yes, but that would take months. Even creating hundreds of meaningless members would take a while.

    The HoL need to do the decent thing now and show the world how democracy works, put this bill in the shredder.
    We've always defined ourselves by the ability to overcome the impossible. And we count these moments. These moments when we dare to aim higher, to break barriers, to reach for the stars, to make the unknown known. We count these moments as our proudest achievements. But we lost all that. Or perhaps we've just forgotten that we are still pioneers. And we've barely begun. And that our greatest accomplishments cannot be behind us, because our destiny lies above us.

    52 percent voted leave despite remain being the official government position, being funded by the government, with the full tools of government, available with all independent and EU affiliated institutions being pro remain, Obama back of the lining, and the untimely death of an outspoken remain campaigner who's tragic story was politically exploited by a pro-remain media (BBC) and London Elite just a few days before the vote.

    Given that absolute mountain to climb, the marginal victory is stronger that what is portrayed. Indeed if Corbyn had the balls to stick by his convictions and labour to campaign vote leave, I think leave would have won by a much greater majority. Look at what Tony Benn and George Galloway have to say on the EU. This is Corbyn's true beliefs.
