STORY: ‘You should be hung for trea­son’: Sun­der­land MP speaks of abuse as she re­veals how she will vote on Brexit deal

Sheila Cleugh: Not ev­ery­one

vote to leave. The com­mon theme was that we had in­suf­fi­cient in­for­ma­tion to make an in­formed choice. I voted to re­main be­cause I felt that work­ers in the re­gion would fare bet­ter if we re­mained. I still feel that way. I also still feel that we should have been given clear in­for­ma­tion about pos­si­ble out­comes. The re­sult of the ref­er­en­dum was very close. Sta­tis­ti­cally speak­ing not re­ally rel­e­vant.

Tracy Hal­l­i­day: The abuse from all sides is shame­ful, but politi­cians have done them­selves no favours in the han­dling of Brexit or when things like the ex­penses scan­dal came to light. In my en­tire life time I have never seen the pub­lic so poorly rep­re­sented across the board at West­min­ster. Cometh the hour and not one of them is wor­thy.

Paul Kerry: She doesn’t re­spect the re­sult be­cause she’s read­ily cam­paign­ing for an­other vote.
