A Letter From Our MP – Why I Will Be Voting Against The Government’s Deal Today

Dear constituent,

I will vote against the government’s deal today. This is worse than May’s deal and does nothing to address workers’ rights, environmental protection or protect our economy.

However I intend to vote for the Letwin amendment, to ensure that we do not leave without a written agreement on 31st October.

If parliament votes for the current agreement then it must be put to a further referendum. A referendum between a ‘billionaire’s Brexit’ – as it was called today –  and Remain would give people the  opportunity to choose between two clear options. 

In a referendum I would vote remain, as I did in 1975 and 2016.

My wish for Kensington and for the country is to stay within the EU, reform regulations that do not work for us, and spend revenue fairly across the country.

I will do everything in my power to achieve this and keep Kensington united with our European brothers and sisters.

In solidarity

Emma
