Last night I was finally able to deliver the speech I had intended to make in December, but was unable to make because of the pointless delay in the vote on the government’s Brexit deal.
In the last month, since the Prime Minister pulled the vote and stopped the debate because she knew she would be defeated, absolutely nothing has changed. It is still a bad deal for Heywood and Middleton and for the country as a whole.
I would have voted against it in December, and I will still vote against it next week.
