Dithering MPs must unite for country
Nearly half brand the behaviour of MPs “a complete and utter disgrace” and 40 per cent say any delay in the UK leaving the EU would be “unacceptable”.
So, The Sun on Sunday names and shames some of those politicians who claim to support democracy but flatly fail to represent the views of their constituents.
Dozens who serve the constituencies where voters backed Brexit are betraying the trust of those people by deliberately dithering or pushing back on the March leaving date agreed in Article 50.
Prominent among them is Cabinet rebel and leading Remoaner Amber Rudd.
Almost 56 per cent of her Hastings constituency voted to leave. Regardless, she broke ranks to push the Prime Minister into abandoning No Deal, undermining the Government’s negotiating position.
Such shenanigans must end. If Theresa May can win sufficient concessions from Brussels to allay genuine fears over the Northern Ireland backstop, MPs must unite behind her.
As the Attorney General Geoffrey Cox has said, the future of the next generation is at stake, and further delay will resolve nothing.
Remainer MPs must put their trust in the people and their faith in the ability of this great country to prosper once we are outside the EU.
Anything else is a shameful betrayal.
