    It is a real comfort to know that we have the HoL to act as a check and balance against the Commons...........

    So there can be no complaints now that the HoL is in control?
    As has been pointed out this is part of the process (brought about because some solicitor some where wanted some publicity and went on and on about parliamentary democracy, the practical effect of which is to bring on a hard Brexit) and is in line with the plan the commons already put forward. They are not in control, someone deliberately left that clause in to give them something to wibble about, it's easily amended as has also been pointed out.

    I use to sit in lectures like them.

    Then some smart arse lecturers use to ask me what they had said thinking I wouldn't know as obviously I was asleep - and I use to repeat it back to them.
