Dear Kate Hoey,

I’m astonished you voted against the amendment today which, as I understand it, it gives you a legal guarantee of a vote on the final Brexit deal struck with Brussels.

I would be very interested to know why you thought handing more power to the Tories and DUP would be a good idea.

Yours sincerely,


EDIT: Kate’s response:

Thanks. There was already a vote on the final deal being given. This was an amendment which was designed to allow the Article 50 process to be extended if the deal came late on. There will either be a deal and if it is voted down then we go over to a no deal WTO rules situation. If you look at the comments of some zealot Remainers you will see that they saw this amendment as a way to start the process of stopping Brexit eg Labour Lord Adonis for example. So along with frank field I voted against the amendment.Of course a lot of my Party just wanted to defeat the Government. I think the will of the British people is too important to play Party politics with and my country comes before Party. Thanks for letting me know your views Best wishes Kate
