'A Tory lord today tore into his fellow peers for trying to 'wreck' Brexit and 'thwart' the will of the people.
Lord Framlingham, a former Tory MP, said the past few days have been the 'darkest' in the Chamber's 700 year history.
And he said that unelected peers have risked causing 'irreparable damage' to the reputation of the unelected Chamber by trying to water down Brexit.
He lashed out at the peers for passing over a dozen amendments to the crucial EU Withdrawal Bill which have been designed to water down Brexit.
The amendments have been tabled to force Theresa May to try to keep the UK in the EU single market and a custom union after Brexit - in defiance on the PM's red lines.
But the Chamber ignored his warnings and inflicted a 15th defeat on the Bill designed to ensure sure EU environmental principles are enshrined in UK law.
Speaking in the House of Lords today, Lord Framlingham said: 'What I do know is that irreparable damage has already been done to our reputation by the antics of these dark days.
'To set ourselves up in such a disreputable way, as guardians of wisdom and the common good when so many of the amendments we have passed have simply been attempts to wreck the Bill and thwart the will of the people is both false and dangerous.
'Without any doubt my lord these days will go down in history as the House at its worst.
'The House has been repeatedly warned of the recklessness of the path taken.''
