Let down by be­hav­iour in Par­lia­ment

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - POINTS OF VIEW -

It seems clear now the

House of Com­mons is al­most un­will­ing or un­able to de­liver on any form of the ref­er­en­dum man­date given them in 2016, so we need an al­ter­na­tive.

For the ma­jor­ity of our demo­crat­i­cally elected rep­re­sen­ta­tives their views and opin­ions are now so en­trenched it is vir­tu­ally im­pos­si­ble for them to change direc­tion with­out los­ing face. It has been clear for some time that many within the House of Com­mons pay lit­tle, if any, heed to the ref­er­en­dum re­sult and are now us­ing this most cru­cial of na­tional is­sues for their own per­sonal and/or po­lit­i­cal ends.

So, as it was us the pop­u­la­tion at large who started this whole sorry mess, let us be the ones to bring it to an end once and for all by tak­ing the de­ci­sion away from these di­vi­sive politi­cians and hav­ing a sim­ple Ref­er­en­dum vote on Mrs May’s deal.

It will con­sist of two choices the deal or no deal.

We have be­come used to our elected rep­re­sen­ta­tives let­ting us down over the years.

Now they have gone too. far re­sult­ing in many of us hav­ing lit­tle if any con­fi­dence left in them and, more wor­ry­ingly, the sys­tem of Par­lia­men­tary de­bates, as the re­lated be­hav­iour of our MPs does make you won­der if ‘the House’ is ac­tu­ally fit for pur­pose.
