Alongside some of my Labour colleagues I have written to Jeremy Corbyn ahead of some crucial votes on Brexit this week. We all represent constituencies that voted Leave in the referendum and we respect that result. As I said at the 2017 election my sole focus is aiming for a Brexit that works for Rother Valley.
Whilst I think the Tories are making a complete mess of the job of negotiating a deal with the EU, I cannot support the minority of Labour MPs who will vote to stay in the Single Market. I have been clear from the start that I will not be voting to stay in the Single Market. This is totally in line with the Labour manifesto that every Labour MP stood on at last year’s General Election.
We accept the referendum result and seek to unite the country around a Brexit deal that works for every community in Britain.
