MPs are set to debate scrapping the House of Lords

Jacob Rees-Mogg today warned peers they are ‘playing with fire’ over Brexit and could ‘burn down their house’ if they defy the referendum.

Labour’s Lords leader Angela Smith mocked Mr Rees-Mogg for getting ‘over excited’ and questioned why he was afraid of peers.

The Brexit ringleader’s threat came as MPs are set to debate the future of the House of Lords after more than 100,000 people signed a petition demanding a referendum on abolition.

The symbolic debate will come amid mounting anger at peers’ re-writing crucial Brexit laws.

The Lords defeated the Government for a third time on the flagship European Union (Withdrawal) Bill last night and more bruising defeats are expected by ministers.
