MP DESERVES SUPPORT FROM ALL AT THIS TIME
AS a Conservative councillor in Chesham who campaigned for Remain, I was pleased that local voters turned out in record numbers to support a Remain victory in Chiltern. Obviously, it was most disappointing that this result was not mirrored nationally.
I and fellow Conservatives were present on the streets in Chesham and Amersham handing out leaflets and talking to passers by throughout the campaign.
However, credit should go to those of all parties and none who campaigned for a Remain vote.
Now the referendum has taken place,we must respect the result. The implication in Chris Spruytenberg’s letter of July 14 is that Parliament may not do so.
I believe not to do so would only further deepen the cynicism of voters and their mistrust of politicians.
The task of negotiating a new relationship with the EU will be huge and complex but Theresa May is the person best qualified to lead our Government in securing the best deal with our European partners.
She deserves our full support at this critical time.
