Peers versus people

No absolute majority in the House of Commons means, incidentally, that the Conservatives do not have a mandate to get Brexit through the House of Lords. Though they can always pack the upper house with peers. 

I do wish they'd stop calling these mostly middle class people 'lords', by the way. The Tories proposed this when the hereditary peers were deprived of their votes, but Labour voted against it.
