MP explains why she voted against General Election

* With reader's letter at foot of story

Clwyd South MP Susan Elan Jones (pictured) has given her reasons for voting against the Government's bid to hold a General Election.

She said: "I have always been of the view that Boris Johnson’s call for a General Election before 31st October was a trap to get a crash-out Brexit that nobody voted for but which suits the Hard Right political agenda of Johnson, Rees-Mogg and Trump.

"I won’t play games with jobs, national security, medicine supplies and the NHS so I was dead against this.

"When I was out in Llangollen with the cross-party Denbighshire for Europe recently, I was struck by the concerns that many local residents had about Brexit.

"I think we need a public vote and totally support the Welsh Labour Government’s commitment to campaign for Remain in one."

* A reader's letter on this subject has been received by llanblogger addressed to Ms Jones:

"I am writing to Thankyou for your recent decision in voting against a General Election. 
A GE will put MP’s at the forefront of this crisis and at unnecessary risk. The decision to leave with a deal or remain should be left to the public to decide first by way of a vote to avoid unnecessary civil disturbance and to keep our MP’s safe.
We are a Welsh family and admire people like you who stand up to bullies.


John and Nikki Hewitt"
