. . .Then send them this letter by post or email to persuade them to make right decision in the national interest
I am writing to you as one of your constituents to ask you, with the greatest respect, to hear what I have to say before you vote on the Brexit Bill in Parliament on Tuesday, December 11. I f irmly believe it is in the national interest that you support the Prime Minister’s deal. I understand that you, like many who voted either Leave or Remain in the 2016 referendum, have reservations about the deal Theresa May has negotiated. Not even the PM is pretending it is perfect. But it is my strong belief that by ending free movement, restoring sovereignty to Parliament and liberating Britain’s f ishermen and farmers from EU control, the Withdrawal Agreement delivers much of what 17.4 million voters demanded at the referendum. For Westminster to turn its back on those voters now would be a dangerous travesty – risking alienating vast swathes of the country from the democratic process for ever. Remember the Government leaf let delivered to every home before the vote said: ‘This is your decision. The Government will implement what you decide.’ No t alk there of a second referendum. The truth is none of the Prime Minister’s critics have come up with a credible alternative to her plan. The most likely alternative – a departure from the European Union with no deal at all – is a leap in the dark which could do permanent damage to our economy and society. Many wise voices have warned of potential chaos. I believe it is simply a risk not worth t aking. With your support, that perilous prospect can be avoided. You must be aware that the British people are tired of the bickering over Brexit. They just want to agree a deal and move on. The time has come to reunite the country around a wise compromise and begin to heal the wounds. So I urge you – and all your fellow MPs – to put aside your differences and come together at this historic moment and vote in favour of the Brexit deal on December 11. This is not a vote for Theresa May. It is a vote for Britain’s independent, secure and prosperous future.
Yours sincerely _____________________________
