Carry on Alex, you are doing a fine job
✒ I DO not agree with writers calling for Alex Chalk to resign on principles around a No Deal Brexit, although I would insist that all politicians must follow the law.
Personally I believe he is doing a great job for Cheltenham, particularly in the face of the Lib Dems.
His opposition to the mess of Boots Corner is well noted, he really rallied senior conservatives support such as Matt Hancock around the Cheltenham A&E closure issue, and has organised opposition to the ridiculous closure of Swindon Road recycling.
He has been very open in addressing locals concerns, such as facing a crowd outside his office, or in front of the public at Pittville Park recently, which he has done with dignity.
I would encourage him to carry on in the face of adversity, knowing he is doing the right thing for us Cheltonians.
Meanwhile, George Penny (Letters, September 12) states that Johnson should hand over the reins of power.
An election would likely give the Conservatives a stronger majority and be a step closer to getting a better deal with the EU as they can clearly see our deeply indecisive and incompetent Parliament is unable to move forward in its current state.
The opposition were offered an election but were unbelievably opposed to it.
The opposition know that the public would never vote Jeremy Corbyn and his cohorts into power.
Democracy is best served by giving Boris Johnson every available tool to negotiate a better deal, including the option to walk with no deal, so that we cease the interminable Brexit debates and get on with running the country.
