Taking Colchester off a cliff with no airbag – Martin Goss accuses Conservative MP of voting for his career and not for the good of Colchester

The Liberal Democrat Prospective MP for Colchester, Martin Goss has today accused the incumbent Conservative MP Willl Quince of “taking Colchester off a cliff with no airbag” as he is set to vote for “no deal” in the latest Brexit Commons vote.

Martin said: “Mr Quince will our on collective behalf vote to keep a “no deal” on the table.   Well let’s be clear there really is nothing left on the table regarding Brexit. I am sure MP Quince likes a good hearty meal and with his latest stance on Brexit, we will have him to thank when the importing of food for Colchester residents becomes difficult and prices rise.”

“Voting for something when there is nothing agreed is absolute suicide for Colchester residents. There are too many unknowns with no deal. There’s no detail, utter confusion over important matters such as imports and exports, immigration, flights, medicines and a host of other important matters. This will be MP Quince’s third vote where he seems to change his mind to suit his political career, putting himself first over Colchester residents.”

“Although I am personally respectful of the original referendum result, we need to ensure that the long term good of the UK is at the forefront of the decisions and behaviour exhibited in Parliament. Currently it is utter chaos and MP Quince is adding to the turmoil. He needs to be held to account.”
