Before attempting to digest the European Elections, let me say a word about Prime Minister Theresa May, who announced her departure last week.
As the Westminster week ends, and we have a brief recess, I think we have reached a significant further stage of the Brexit process.
I thought you would like to see this letter from the PM about leaving the EU.
As I have previously made clear, I support leaving the EU with an agreement.
I intend to support this latest attempt.
Rt Hon Alistair Burt MP
Parliament remains in a state of anticipation in relation to further progress on Brexit.
After the high intensity of previous weeks, with the deadlines of March 29th, and April 12th passed by, we are currently in a different phase of the Brexit process.
I voted last night to support the Letwin-Cooper Bill which requires the Government to seek an extension to the Article 50 process and avoid a no-deal Brexit.
I have received a number of emails similar to the one below:
“I am writing to you to ask you to give the people the final say on the Brexit deal.
Two things emerged most clearly from the statement by the Prime Minister last night, as she attempted to break the logjam surrounding Brexit.
Another week in Parliament as we wrestle, on the nation’s behalf, with the issue which is now consuming us all.
Thank you to everyone from NE Beds who has written and messaged with their views in the past 24 hours or so.
