17.4 million shades of Brexit.
Labour MP Andrew Gwynne posted a Twitter thread on how 17.4 million Leave voters definitely don’t all want the same version of Brexit.
In case you missed it:
It’s very easy for people to demand that their MP vote as they want on a particular issue like Brexit. My constituents voted 61% to Leave the EU in the referendum BUT the Cameron Government never spelt out a Leave ‘Plan B’...
Here’s a sample of emails received today:
“I voted leave and now want EFTA.”
“Vote against May’s Deal and let’s have something like Norway.”
“I voted Leave and now regret it...”
“Vote against May’s Deal as I’m worried about jobs and peace in Northern Ireland.”
“I voted Leave, just LEAVE.”
“I support the Prime Minister’s Deal.” (to be fair, I haven’t had many of these)
And therein lies the problem.
People voted to Leave, but the 17.4 million don’t all want the same version of leaving the EU.
