Euro MP Tells Europe: May’s Deal Is Not In My Name

Posted by Alex Mayer on 12th January 2019

Ahead of Tuesday’s Brexit vote in the House of Commons, Norfolk Euro Labour MP Alex Mayer spoke in the European Parliament Chamber in Strasbourg on the evening of Monday 14 January.

Addressing fellow MEPs, she branded promises made by Brexiteers as “arrant nonsense” and said that May has “bartered real power for notional sovereignty.”

She made a direct appeal to MPs voting the following day saying: “So my message to MPs of all political colours is vote down this miserable deal” and called for an extension of Article 50.
