Abolish the House of Lords

We’re launching our biggest campaign ever, and you can be part of it!

There’s never been a better time to abolish the House of Lords. Disgraced ex-Prime Minister Boris Johnson has bagged his cronies lifetime seats in our parliament and Labour leader Keir Starmer has vowed to scrap the bloated and outdated Lords once and for all. We need to make sure he keeps that promise.

It’s time for us to transform politics and create a democracy we can be proud of.

At Sortition Foundation, perhaps unsurprisingly, we hope that an upgraded second chamber would involve citizens' assemblies selected by sortition, but unless Keir Starmer keeps his promise, we won’t have a democracy we can be proud of any time soon. 

If you would like to support our work to promote deliberative democracy and citizens' assemblies on an ongoing basis please consider becoming a Friends of Sortition Foundation member
