Very sadly we may have found out the reason that Ellie Reeves decided that remaining in the EU was perhaps not such an important issue to her after all.mikej wrote:Sadly, on last night's vote she went along with her leader's hard Brexit, refusing to do what she said she'd do in her election material. Why didn't she support the approach of Chuka Ummuna and 50 odd colleagues?
Clearly she can't be trusted.
She was appointed to the Justice Select Committee yesterday, an appointment that I daresay she wouldn't have got anywhere near if she had hadn't helped defeat the motion to stay in the EU.
On the one hand I feel very let down that someone could so heavily campaign on an important issue, then immediately U-turn for their own political gain.
On the other hand, someone (seemingly) that cynical and unprincipled is headed right for the very top, and while the strong Remain feeling in P&LW was hardly going to sway the country very much, now we know how she works, it could be she will be able to throw us a few bones to tackle local issues in the future, if the right pressure is applied.
