Conservative Party MP Andrew Rosindell appeared on the BBC’s Sunday Politics Live to discuss how the attitude of his constituents to Brexit. Mr Rosindell has represented the Greater London constituency of Romford since 2001. He announced his bid to become the Conservative candidate for London Mayor in 2018 but failed to make the final shortlist.
He said: “You can guess my constituency is totally for Brexit.
“We want to get the job done.
“Everyone I speak to, including lots of people who voted Remain, I have to say, now say ‘let’s get the job done’.
“Let’s get it over with.”
The MP added: “And there is a lot of support for the position that Boris has taken.
“I’ve done a survey actually.
“90% of people said yes, we want Brexit done.”
In Romford, Mr Rosindell’s constituents voted roughly 70-30 in favour of leaving the EU in 2016.
He continued: “It’s surprising because we’ve been flooded with propaganda about the sky falling in and everything being a disaster.
“But people haven’t changed their minds.
“In fact, more people have come over to believing that leaving the EU is the best long-term decision for the United Kingdom.”
Mr Rosindell said: “So they’re still pro-Brexit despite all the stuff they’ve had thrown at them.”
Despite no motion being triggered or date being set, many parliamentarians are gearing up for a general election soon.
This can be called either through the Prime Minister requesting one of the Leader of the Opposition tabling a no confidence motion.
Boris Johnson has already tried to call a general election twice, and been defeated in the House of Commons both times.
Jeremy Corbyn has not put forward a no confidence vote yet despite calling for the Prime Minister to resign over the Supreme Court ruling.
