Five Kent MPs say they want out

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - News -

Political opin­ion in the county over the ques­tion of whether the UK should re­main in the EU is – not un­ex­pect­edly – di­vided.

Of the county’s 16 Con­ser­va­tive MPs who have shown their hand, five have sig­nalled their sup­port for a Brexit.

They are: Gareth John­son (Dart­ford), Craig Mackin­lay (South Thanet), Ju­lian Bra­zier (Can­ter­bury), Adam Hol­loway (Grave­sham) and Gor­don Hen­der­son (Sit­ting­bourne and Shep­pey).

Those sup­port­ing the UK to re­main in the EU are: Damian Green (Ash­ford), Damian Collins (Folke­stone and Hythe), Char­lie El­ph­icke (Dover), Sir Roger Gale (North Thanet), Greg Clark (Tun­bridge Wells) and Michael Fal­lon (Sevenoaks).

The re­main­ing MPs have in­di­cated they are still weigh­ing up the is­sue.

The deal ne­go­ti­ated by David Cameron has been slammed by Ukip Party leader and South East MEP Nigel Farage as “truly pa­thetic”.
