I’m writing to you after convening a gathering previous lately with the leaders of alternative opposition events on how we will be able to paintings in combination, throughout Parliament to stop a dangerous No Deal go out from the Eu Union. At that assembly, we agreed to make efforts to position birthday party politics apart to have the option during the provide disaster.
We all know there’s a majority in parliament in opposition to No Deal. As MPs we’ve voted in opposition to No Deal on a lot of events and we did so within the biggest quantity on 27 March of this yr.
As you have been considered one of 116 Conservative or unbiased MPs who voted in opposition to No Deal that day and don’t seem to be at the executive frontbench, I’m writing to you to supply to paintings in combination, in a collegiate, pass birthday party spirit, to discover a sensible strategy to save you No Deal.
That is an pressing activity. The Top Minister is reportedly making plans to droop parliament to drive thru a No Deal crash out. This motion could be, in step with felony recommendation I’ve won from Shadow Legal professional Normal Shami Chakrabarti, “the gravest abuse of energy and assault upon UK constitutional theory in residing reminiscence”.
My view is that keeping a common election after an extension is accomplished is the most simple and maximum democratic strategy to save you No Deal and to let the folk of this nation make a decision our long run. Certainly, it’s the most productive path to a referendum or leaving the EU with a deal.
I perceive now not all colleagues would possibly agree.
So I wish to invite you to sign up for a discussion with myself, as chief of the Labour Celebration, and different opposition events, to have the option for the transparent will of parliament in opposition to No Deal to specific itself. Please reply via e mail.
