ABOLISH THE HOUSE OF LORDS
LAWMAKERS MUST BE ELECTED BY THE PEOPLE
We believe the House of Lords is an undemocratic hangover from days gone by, desperately in need of modernisation. Lawmakers should not inherit their seats, or be appointed by the establishment parties in shady backroom deals. We must replace the House of Lords with a second chamber elected by you, the public.
HOW SHOULD WE ELECT THEM?
Joe will fight for a second chamber elected by a system of proportional representation - so that everyone's voice can make a difference at every stage of the parliamentary process.
FIGHTING FOR REFORM FROM WITHIN
The Green Party's only member of the House of Lords is Jenny Jones. During her time in the House of Lords she has fought to reform the institution from the inside, even though she stands to lose her own seat if the house is abolished and replaced with a new second chamber. That's a Green politician putting their principles into action and putting the country first.
