Accrington Observer - - YOUR VIEWS -

THROUGH your columns, could I re­spect­fully ask our MP Mr Gra­ham Jones if he in­tends to con­sult with his con­stituents prior to vot­ing on the ac­cep­tance or other­wise of the Prime Min­is­ter’s ne­go­ti­ated set­tle­ment for leav­ing the EU?

The Gov­ern­ment have made a mess of the ne­go­ti­a­tions, the Labour Party have ‘played pol­i­tics’ and sat on the fence, and the EU is to­tally flawed.

Please Mr Jones, do your job and give us some guid­ance!

At the ref­er­en­dum, Mr Jones voted to re­main in the EU while 66.2 per cent of his con­stituents voted to leave.

To date, I do not re­call our MP tak­ing part in any of the dis­cus­sions and de­bates in Par­lia­ment, and his only com­ment through your columns have been that ‘the coun­try is paral­ysed by Brexit’ and ‘if there was an­other vote, I would still vote to re­main’ (Ob­server col­umn Novem­ber 16)

How does his logic or ide­ol­ogy equate with what’s best for the coun­try, what’s best for his Par­lia­men­tary ca­reer, is Mrs May’s ‘agree­ment’ a good or bad deal, and is he go­ing to vote with his con­science, his con­stituents, or as his beloved Labour Party whips dic­tate?

Please don’t pa­tro­n­ise us with the Labour Party’s six tests clap­trap.

As it stands at the mo­ment, it looks like we, as a coun­try, are go­ing to be pay­ing out around £60 bil­lion for ab­so­lutely noth­ing.

So please Mr Jones, up­date us with your plans, call a pub­lic meet­ing, or are you too busy on the many com­mit­tees on which you serve to dis­cuss this ex­tremely dif­fi­cult and ‘once in a life­time’ very se­ri­ous mat­ter with your con­stituents?
