Petition: Tell the PM – No new unelected Lords

Faced with public anger, Theresa May has been relatively restrained in her appointments to the House of Lords. But now she is resigning, there is the risk that she'll use the opportunity of resignation honours to give out peerages to her supporters. 

Sign the petition calling for a halt to new appointments until there are plans for real reform.

Petition:

Enough is enough. There should be no new appointments until there are real plans for a fairly-elected revising chamber. 

Background:

The Prime Minister had put plans to pack the Lords with new peers on hold at the start of 2018 after a poll for the Electoral Reform Society poll showed four in five Conservative voters oppose it.

Rather than respect popular opinion, the government took advantage of the royal wedding and snuck in 14 new lords while the nation was distracted. As her resignation approaches, there is the risk that she, like previous prime ministers, will leave a resignation honours list - and we'll have to pick up the tab. We need to put a complete halt to new appointments until the house has been properly reformed.
