THERE are strong feelings on both sides of the Brexit debate and that is understandable.

But what infuriates me is the selective memory syndrome offered up by people like Alan Jordan of Middridge (HAS, Apr 13).

He contradicts what Nigel Farage says that “Parliament won’t keep its promises”, refers to the referendum being “not binding” and that Parliament promised to leave the EU “with whatever terms the Government considered acceptable”.

Well, Alan, Parliament hasn’t kept its promise, the referendum was binding due to the statement made, and recorded for all to see, by David Cameron and then ratified by Parliament and the subsequent signing of Article 50, and finally terms for leaving were never part of the referendum ballot.

He then tries to make the case that Parliament is not a Remain domain by saying that 90 per cent of MPs belong to parties who support leaving the EU, which is correct, but fails to indicate that the MPs themselves are Remain supporters and therein lies the problem.

He can’t accept that Parliament won’t keep its promises and yet the proof is there for all to see.

My own MP, Helen Goodman, Labour, Bishop Auckland, continues to misrepresent her constituency by failing to recognise Brexit as the choice of her constituents and, apart from the signing of Article 50, votes against or abstains from every pro-Brexit motion in Parliament.

If that isn’t a clear picture of Parliament not keeping its promise, then what is?

The Leave vote is now clearly for a no-deal Brexit because we fear that those not wanting Brexit at all are waging a war of attrition in the hope that the public gets fed up and stops fighting for what we voted for.

Well I won’t forget, neither will I give up on what is our right from June 2016.

Those wanting to Remain in the EU need to look forward and read what those in charge of the EU have in store for its member states. Leave now or never have sovereignty again.
