Parliament was meant to be sitting this week. However, in order to shut down debate and in my view to prevent MPs from scrutinising the Government, they instead decided to suspend (prorogue) Parliament on Monday. We will not be returning until the middle of October and I will spend that time working for you in the constituency. That could change if a legal case due to be heard on Tuesday in the Supreme Court is in some way successful. In any event, I will be spending my time out and about in Broxtowe so please get in touch if there is any issue or matter I can assist with.
Have a lovely weekend.
As ever, Anna
Important votes in Parliament
Monday was a long sitting day (I left Parliament just after 1.30 in the morning). I voted in favour of the disclosure of important documents about the impact of a no deal Brexit and the suspension of Parliament. I am now working with others to make sure the Government complies with the wishes of Parliament.
The Government again tried to force a General election and again failed. I know most people are thoroughly fed up with Brexit and agree we must bring things to a conclusion but a General Election will not solve the very grave crisis we are in. It’s quite clear the Labour Party remains deeply divided on the issue and despite the expulsion of Conservative moderates from the party, it too has divisions on Brexit. This is why I am even more of the view that the only solution is to get the matter back to voters by way of a second referendum.
