On Tuesday 15th January MPs are expected to vote on Theresa May’s Brexit deal. My position on that deal is below:
“Last month I said I would not vote for a deal that would leave my constituents, my city or my country poorer, and I do not see how this deal is an improvement upon what was offered to MPs then. This ‘new’ deal would still leave livelihoods on the line and the life prospects of thousands up in the air.
“My constituents have made it overwhelmingly clear through the hundreds of E-mails and letters I’ve received and conversations I’ve had that they are not only against this Brexit deal, but now want a second referendum on the issue of EU membership, that must include the option to remain in the EU.”
