Addressing his peers moments before the House of Lords voted to accept the European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill, paving the way for Prime Minister Theresa May to trigger Article 50 by the end of the month, a Liberal Democrat Lord was jeered as he explained how anyone who voted for Brexit was akin to Hitler and that the people’s will should be ignored… because the lords know best.

Lord Taverne’s comments in full:

“It is a very dangerous step towards the doctrine that the people’s will must always prevail.

This is the doctrine always favored by Hitler, Mussolini and Stalin — and by Erdogan at present.

It is a denial of the essence of democracy which we have supported with great effect in this country and now we are abandoning it. My Lords, we are the guardians of parliamentary democracy, and we are right in this. We are the democrats. We are right to support the democratic cause.
