Political Cowards

I cannot help but think that the politicians who are voting for Brexit against their better judgment will rue the day. Presumably they think that kowtowing to the narrow majority of constituents who voted Leave will get them re-elected at the next general election. However when those same constituents see that their vote has left them worse not better off with just as many immigrants “stealing their jobs” they will naturally blame those in power who have led them up this garden path.

Our MPs are elected to use their best endeavours for the good of the electorate, not to be spineless lobby fodder at Westminster. If a politician does not agree with a course of action taken by the government of the day they should vote accordingly.

This is most especially true in the present situation where Britain is about to embark on the most momentous voluntary course of action in a century.
