I hope you will allow me to inform the 45 per cent of the Hastings and Rye constituency who voted last June to remain in the European Union that, this week, the Leader of the Labour Party mandated his peers in the House of Lords to vote with the Tory Government in defeating Peter Hain’s amendment regarding Article 50 (to keep Britain in the Single Market).
The Liberal Democrats supported Lord Hain, and the amendment would have passed if it had been voted for by Labour.
Sadly the Labour Party is no longer fighting to keep Britain open, tolerant and united. Seemingly it is only my little party that will.
