“It does not deliver Brexit and tonight I will vote against it.” Lucy Allan MP on tonight’s vote.

Telford & The Wrekin both had a Leave majority in the 2016 referendum. Tonight MP for Telford made the following statement.

“The PM has done all she can to get an agreement on the terms of our withdrawal from the EU, and the EU have treated her shabbily. They have treated our country shabbily and have had scant regard for our democracy.

My constituents voted strongly to leave. Over the last two and half years, they have seen those in positions of power and influence, who are used to getting their way, fight tooth and nail to stop Brexit and to disregard their voice.

I feel a deep sense of duty to my constituents, not least because too often no one listens to them and too often those in power act as if they do not matter.

We have seen it with the plans for our hospital, we have seen it in the response to CSE and we see it with Brexit.

I am an pragmatist by nature but tonight principles take priority.

As the representative of Telford people, I cannot in good conscience collude with the dismissing my constituents voice.

So I cannot support the PM’s Withdrawal Agreement as it does not deliver Brexit and tonight I will vote against it.”

    Good for her. The EU deal is an insult and does not deliver what we voted for. Telford voted overwhelmingly for Brexit and she is doing what her constituents want.

    And just what the fuck has Lucy Allen done for our hospital? Like she gives a toss about the people of Telford.

      Absolutely nothing one is aware of however, Lucy Allan MP has done an awful lot to keep the PRH running and continues to do so whilst continuing in her membership of the Education Select Committee, lobbying for All-Party Parliamentary Group for New Towns, campaigning for our care system, Childrens care and holding Telford Council to account for its failings.

    I would have liked a deal, but in reality, we were never going to get one we could agree with. The EU are terrified of more countries leaving, so I said at the start that if we didn’t walk into the negotiations with a default of “no deal”, then we’d get crumbs. No Deal is our only route to getting our self respect back as a country, dropping to WTO and Article 24 transition.

    No such thing as an Article 24 Transition. It’s a red herring….
    No deal will be a disaster for the economy.
