The core purpose that needs addressing


AmberThe interview on Radio BBC 5live with Amber Rudd on Tuesday included the statement from her “The core purpose of this government is to run a strong economy and to look after the communities that we come from and that we are elected to look after.” It is clear that if one was interpreting these words precisely (and the interview did certainly include a number of carefully considered words) that what she was saying is that only the constituencies that are currently part of the Tory Party regime are the ones they want to look after. However even if this is the case, and I suspect she did not mean that their only concern is her constituency and the other 312 Tory Constituencies, there is a clear need for Amber and her 312 colleagues to change their approach and very urgently. As I have written before across Sussex a substantial number of residents have signed a petition calling for Article 50 to be revoked. Even if she was simply to consider the 12 constituencies that have Tory MPs, her knowledge that 130,000 or 10.3% of the residents of that part of Sussex have signed the petition should surely lead her to calling on her 11 colleagues to change their approach on such matters, given that two of them voted for a No Deal Brexit a few days ago. Then there is the fact that so few of them bother to listen to businesses, even though Amber is claiming that our economy is what really counts. There are of course a great many other issues that people in Sussex care about which need considering if the MPs are serious in supporting this argument!
