Given the Brexit confusion in Parliament yesterday, I enquired how our MP will vote today.
Dear Mr Goodwill,
In your duties as Scarborough & Whitby MP you’ve previously voted multiple times on the EU Referendum Bill to abdicate responsibility for taking a vote on the future of the United Kingdom within the European Union and passed it across to your constituents.
We happily accepted the responsibility of such a decision and on June 23rd 2016 voters in Scarborough & Whitby turned out in large numbers and voted to leave the European Union decisively with 62% of the vote.
As a result of our votes you voted in Parliament to enshrine in law a WTO ‘No Deal’ Brexit to take place on March 29th 2019. A WTO ‘No Deal’ Brexit would fully implement the result of the 2016 EU Referendum.
I see the Prime Minister has announced a vote in Parliament to determine the future of a WTO ‘No Deal’ Brexit. Unsurprisingly, the Prime Minister has also announced that she will vote to take ‘No Deal’ off the table.
If you follow the lead of the Prime Minister and you vote to take a WTO ‘No Deal’ Brexit off the table, you are effectively nullifying the result of the 2016 EU Referendum and there will be consequences for you.
If you find that you can no longer respect the result of 2016 EU Referendum, you should step down and let the people of Scarborough & Whitby find someone who can act in their best interests.
If Mr Goodwill replies promptly, I will either add his reply to my letter or post it in a separate article for your perusal.
I hope he elucidates his voting intentions because he hasn’t been clear over Brexit during the last few years.
