Campaigns. It is important that I continue to know the strength of feeling on an issue and I prefer to respond to every inquiry, but the sheer size of campaign correspondence means that it is hard to justify to the tax payer the cost and time taken for individual written replies, so regrettably I will no longer reply to every item of campaign correspondence.  I will  post a response to the campaign on the "Responses to campaigns" page of my website.

I am sorry to do this, as it is rather impersonal, but can see no other way of maintaining a good service for all my constituents unless I approach campaigns this way.

Revoke

Thank you very much for writing to me about the division, waste and mess that have followed in the wake of the 2016 Brexit vote. I agree with you.

I do not want to trash our economy, put a border down the Irish Sea or sign away environmental and employment protections. Johnson's deal won't "get Brexit done" it will only get it started by kicking off years of further wrangling over our future relationship and trade negotiations in which we will be the junior partner.

The only way to stop the division, cost and chaos of this whole miserable saga is to stop Brexit. We are now ready to take our pro-European message to the country, where our policy will be that a Liberal Democrat majority government would revoke Article 50 on day one in order to Stop Brexit.

If we are not the majority party we will of course support any vote in Parliament for a second referendum.
