Brexitwatch: write to the speaker to stop May putting her disastrous 'deal' again


One of the few parliamentarians to emerge with real credit from the Brexit fiasco so far is the Speaker of the House of Commons, John Bercow. Last week he courageously ruled against Theresa May bringing her dreadful blindfold Brexit 'deal' back before MPs for a third time.

But May, who plainly has no respect for democracy, is just waiting for the chance to do exactly that. Allowing her to keep putting such a deeply unpopular plan until she gets the answer she wants is plainly unacceptable and makes parliament a laughing stock. So join me in writing to the Speaker again, asking him to stand firm. This is what I have sent:

Dear Mr Speaker,
Thank you for all you have done to fight for our democracy against a dangerously dictatorial prime minister and government.
I hear disturbing rumours that she is planning to bring her totally discredited blindfold Brexit 'deal' back to parliament. I trust you will not allow it to be put before MPs again without substantial and significant changes.
This browbeating and bullying of parliament while she denies the people the chance to change their minds is utterly unacceptable.
Please help us again.
Yours sincerely,
John Withington
