You may have received a letter from Rosie Cooper. Update On Parliamentary Activities, Leaving The European Union
To quote Rosie Cooper as our MP on 10th October, 2019 “In 2016 West Lancashire voted in favour of leaving the EU, a decision Rosie Cooper MP committed to honouring during the Brexit process. A position which is consistent with the 2017 Labour Party manifesto which she was elected on”.
She also stated “I have consistently argued that an orderly Brexit is better than a No Deal Brexit”. But that was not at issue in 2016. It has been developed as a theme by remainers.
She commented on Brexit 2nd April, 2019 “West Lancashire MP Rosie Cooper said “Although a remainer, my position on Brexit has been consistent and remains unchanged. Quite simply the will of the people and the outcome of the referendum should be respected. In West Lancashire a majority of people, 55% voted to Leave the EU.
“Throughout this process, however it unfolds I will continue to represent the interests of my West Lancashire constituents, whist honouring the majority decision of the 55% who voted to leave the EU”.
But it hasn’t become quite what the majority expected or what should be respected. Here it is “I was also involved in the campaign for the United Kingdom to remain in a Customs Union with the European Union”
Not “To leave the EU and then negotiate a Free Trade Agreement that takes tariffs and barriers off to make trading cheaper”.
A remainer to the end?
