Dear [Insert Your MP’s Name Here],
On 23rd June over 17.4 million people voted for the UK to Leave the European Union. More people voted ‘Leave’ than have ever voted for any political party in any United Kingdom General Election. By its very nature, in granting the Referendum, Parliament transferred the decision of whether or not the UK remains a member of the EU back to the people of the United Kingdom. The people made their feelings clear and therefore the Referendum result must be respected.
Over recent months I have become increasingly worried about some MPs publicly declaring their intention to vote against the democratic decision made on June 23rd.
There was never any suggestion before the Referendum about the possibility of the result being ignored. It appears this tactic is being used to obstruct a decision which certain politicians disagree with, in clear violation of the terms of the Referendum.
I do not want to force MPs to change their minds; I want them to implement the decision which was determined by us, the voters. A vote in Parliament, should the Supreme Court action fail, would allow the Prime Minister to trigger Article 50 and start Brexit negotiations. It would do no more than that. This is merely a mechanism to enable the result of the EU Referendum, not a statement of anyone’s personal political view.
If the Supreme Court forces a vote, I hope I can count on you, as my MP, to vote in favour of triggering Article 50, or I would like you to be left in no doubt you would be unable to count on my vote in the 2020 General Election.
