Lords defeat government over rights of EU citizens in UK | Politics | The Guardian

Quote:
a demand by the House of Lords to guarantee the rights of EU citizens living in the UK within three months of article 50 being triggered.

Ministers were said to “disappointed” by a heavy defeat in which peers voted 358 to 256 in favour of amending the Brexit bill, but made clear that their position would not change on the issue.
Uh oh. The unelected second chamber defy the overwhelming mandate demanded by 34% of the voting age population. Cue "enemies of the people" headlines and calls for reform to give us "stronger" leadership.
