Brexit Votes Update
Posted Wednesday, 13 March 2019 at 12:42

The vote I cast yesterday in favour of the Prime Minister’s Withdrawal Agreement was one of the hardest of my time in Parliament. I decided, on balance, that the risk of us losing Brexit altogether was just too high to vote against. 

I continue to have deep misgivings about the deal. I didn’t want to vote for it. It was very hard to do so. If it had been passed, it would have meant long years fighting against the worst aspects of its implementation. But it was the least unpleasant option available.

Many of my leave voting constituents have continued to write to me calling for a WTO Brexit. There is a strong possibility that tonight, Parliament will vote with a large majority against a No Deal Brexit. 

The Remain majority in Parliament does not reflect the will or the vote of the people. But today, will make itself heard. No deal denied, Article 50 extended. When that happens, as I’m now sure it will, the conversation will move to a second referendum. This will take years, to pass the legislation and to agree on the question. At this point, I think the chance of Brexit happening at all falls away. 

The fight for Brexit continues. I will vote today to keep No Deal as an option and, tomorrow, against any extension of Article 50.
