They all want firing off!
She is your representative, not your delegate. She campaigned for remain because she believed that was best for her constituents. What do you want in your MP, a poodle or a hypocrite? If it’s a poodle then you need to be ready to tell her how to vote on everything. And become an expert on everything.
I don’t profess to be an expert Dave, but it appears that you do & know everything there is to know about politics & Brexit, so why are you not running for or a MP?
I try not to get involved in this discussion I’m not interested in politics, all I was saying & have ever said is that they are all self serving, two faced hypocrites who care for themselves not the people or the country & just like to have slanging matches against one another!
Bit like on here sometimes
There is a lot of serve serving going on, the best example being Boris Johnson with others like Raab not far behind who change their position to what they think will benefit their leadership aspirations.
The point I was making about how Wigan voted is a lot of people give politics scant thought yet they were asked to vote on Brexit. Who knew about the Northern Ireland border issue or what a customs union was before the vote? I didn’t but I do now.
Those pig farmers I mentioned rely on the EU to sell into yet voted Leave as if being “patriotic” and leaving would not affect their business. We pay MP’s to understand the complexities and it is their job to do so. What we got instead was a pack of lies from the Leave side about what was possible such that those pig farmers thought voting to leave was not going to be incompatible with their business.
There is an agenda behind Brexit that isn’t what was sold to the public and it is a hard right extreme capitalist one.
How people were influenced to vote in this is only slowly coming to light.
Have a read of this and see how the manipulation continues. There is someone chucking more money at persuading MP’s to go for a hard Brexit than political parties have spent combined this year.
