Thank you to everyone who has emailed regarding Brexit and the prorogation of Parliament. I apologise for not replying to everyone individually, but I have received hundreds of emails on this and it is proving impossible.
Firstly, I would like to reassure you that my position on Brexit has not changed. I campaigned to remain, voted against triggering Article 50, consistently voted against May’s deal and have pushed for a public vote. I stand by this and will campaign again to remain in the event of a second referendum.
As you will be aware, despite everyone’s best efforts prorogation took place on September 9th after a stormy week in Parliament. I signed the Church House Declaration to show my opposition to it happening and you can read my blog from the time here: https://www.vickyfoxcroft.org.uk/policy-response/2019/09/02/our-new-prime-minister-no-deal-and-prorogation/
Two weeks on, we have now returned to the Commons following the Supreme Court’s sensational verdict that Parliament was illegally prorogued.
We are in unprecedented times and Boris Johnson’s track record as Prime Minister is just about as bad as it’s possible to get. It is incredibly difficult to predict what will happen next, but it seems likely that a general election is just around the corner.
I can’t pretend to know exactly how events are going to unfold, but I would like to reassure you that I will continue to do all I can to prevent us from crashing out of the EU with no deal or – ideally – to ensure that we remain in the European Union.
Thank you once again for taking the time to get in touch.
