Below we publish the names and constituencies of those Labour MPs and candidates who have publicly signed a pledge to campaign to remain in the EU, despite the clear democratic result of the EU Referendum.
Brexit Facts4EU.Org Summary
Here is the Pledge they have signed
“Labour is committed to a confirmatory referendum, to give you the final say on Brexit.
If elected as your Labour MP, I pledge to campaign to Remain in the EU”
This pledge has been made by 149 Labour candidates so far, and more are expected to sign in the coming days and weeks. Readers will note the implications.
- Even if a Labour government is elected, and
- Even if that government re-negotiates to align the UK much more closely with the EU, and
- Even if this includes Single Market and Customs Union membership
These candidates will STILL campaign to remain in the EU in another EU referendum.
The 80 thousand pound question (annual salary of an ordinary MP)
If elected, these Labour candidates will take their seats in Parliament and will start drawing a basic salary of £79,468 per annum – plus expenses - as a backbencher. More if they have senior positions.
Our question to these Labour MPs and candidates is very simple
Why should voters respect your election in a local democratic vote
If you will not respect the decision of the British people in 2016
to leave the EU in a much larger democratic vote?
