Labour MP John Mann has called on his fellow MPs to vote for the Prime Minister’s deal and “let the people get on with their lives”.

The government has put forward a motion calling for a short, technical extension, prompting speculation that Theresa May intends to bring her deal to the Commons for a third time.

 

 

Speaking to talkRADIO’s Mike Graham, Mr Mann said: “These people sit on their hands in here day in day out trying to be clever than everyone else with their parliamentary procedures.

“They need to get on with it, vote it through and let the people get on with their lives.”

 

'Stronger position' for May's deal

 

Theresa May is expected to bring her deal to a third meaningful vote. 

Mr Mann, who campaigned for Leave in the referendum, maintained that Mrs May’s deal remained the only feasible route out of the EU.

He said: “The maths is very simple against no-deal, which was voted against last night, and I have put down a motion today to knock a second referendum on the head.

“Then we are left in a stronger position to say there is a deal and we can go our own way without making a massive amount of hassle.”
