open letter sent to my MP

Dear Lucy Frazer MP

Parliament is debating the Brexit bill.

The referendum result is not binding on Parliament.  Parliament must do its job and vote in the best interests of the entire country.

The world is a very different place from what it was in June.  There is a demagogue in charge of the USA attempting to become a fascist dictator.  Some of the parallels with 1933 Germany are frankly terrifying.

Now is not the time for the UK to “go it alone”.  We need to stand with our European allies, not move towards appeasement of the next fascist dictatorship.

I urge you to vote for the interests of our country, and of the world.  This is not “going against the will of the electorate”.  That was then.  This is now.   The UK cannot afford to leave its allies and partners during the current state of this new broken world order.  Those who do not learn from history are condemned to repeat it.  Let us not repeat it.  In particular, let us not repeat it from the wrong side.

Yours sincerely
