The Liberal Democrat’s Parliamentary Candidate for Henley and Thame, Laura Coyle has penned an open letter to recently re-elected MP John Howell.
The Honourable John Howell MP
Congratulations on your re-election as MP for Henley.
On 8 June the British people rejected the Hard Brexit advocated by Theresa May. But the right wing of your party and the Democratic Unionists will no doubt still try and impose a Hard Brexit on our country.
When the results were announced Edward Vaizy, the Conservative MP for Wantage, called the vote a rejection of a Hard Brexit- remarks which I endorsed. Will you pledge now to stand by your principles and to stand with him and other Remain voting MPs of all parties in opposing any attempt by the right of your party to impose a Hard Brexit which would be a catastrophe for Henley and our country and in working for a deal which maintains as close a relationship as possible with our European neighbours.
