MP for Yeovil, Marcus Fysh, has come under fire after suggesting that Conservative Brexiteer MPs should refuse to support the Government.
Quoted in The Sunday Times (8th July 2018), Mr Fysh had been attending a meeting of Jacob Rees-Mogg’s European Research Group, when he is reported to have said that Brexiteer MPs should “Down tools and refuse to vote”.
Speaking on this revelation, the Prospective Parliamentary Candidate for the Liberal Democrats, Mick Clark, did not hold back in his response “What this means is that Marcus Fysh is now suggesting that he will not vote on anything in Parliament, because he couldn’t get his own way”
“The constituents in South Somerset need a voice in Parliament now more than ever, fighting for the best possible outcome for our industry, jobs and families. What we have instead is the current MP who now refuses to champion the needs of his constituents or give them the voice they deserve”.
“This is an insult to residents and businesses in the Yeovil Constituency. Marcus is behaving like an angry toddler, throwing his toys out of the pram”
