Speaking after today’s vote (29 March) on the EU Withdrawal Agreement, Caroline Flint said:
“Today, the day we should have left the EU, Parliament let down the people and businesses of Don Valley.
“Parliament has strained the patience of people who thought that over 1,000 days after the referendum, the UK should have left already.
“I hope everyone understands that today’s vote was a vote to block Brexit. I couldn’t support that.
“I voted to guarantee that the UK would leave the EU on 22 May. Today, that option was thrown away.
