The Government appears to be selling positions in the heart of our democracy. Since 2010, twenty-two of the Conservative Party’s biggest donors have been made Lords - with an estimated combined contribution of £54 million.
Members of the House of Lords get a say on laws that affect all of our lives. Why should someone get a vote on laws affecting the NHS or Universal Credit because they handed £3 million to the Conservative Party?
Handing out peerages for cash is a criminal offence. But so far, the Metropolitan Police has refused to investigate. We think they need to look at the evidence urgently.
Will you add your name to the petition and ask the Police to launch an investigation?
