Michael Fabricant is calling for a General Election without delay and says: “Once again a Remainer Parliament has voted to delay or thwart the will of the British people as expressed in the referendum back in 2016.
“To those who are calling for another Referendum, I say we had a ‘People’s Referendum’ three years ago. With Labour now offering only a partial Brexit with the UK still being subject to control from Brussels and the Liberal Democrats who would remain in the EU, the only effective ‘People’s Vote’, which is long overdue, is a General Election.
“Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour Party are vetoing an Election under the Fixed Term Parliament Act. He knows, if the polls are correct, that both his Party – and he personally – are deeply unpopular and so would be likely to lose.
“So we are trapped with a Government that does not enjoy a Parliamentary majority and a Parliament which is made up predominantly of Remain MPs determined to stop Brexit. This cannot go on. It is paralysing our country.
“So I say: Let’s have a ‘People’s Vote’ without delay: namely a General Election. Then the People can make a real choice between the alternatives for our country.”
