On Saturday 31st August, Sarah joined Swindon residents from across the political spectrum to demonstrate against the shutdown of Parliament.
Sarah has posted a letter to South Swindon MP, Robert Buckland, asking him how he plans to keep his promises to avoid a No-deal Brexit. The content of the letter is posted below.
A No-deal Brexit will be damaging for Swindon residents. Prices will rise for us all, there are potential shortages of medicines, and it poses a significant risk to our jobs. Parliament must sit from now until 31st October (the planned date for Brexit) so that the Government can be scrutinised in its plans. To avoid scrutiny is to undermine our parliamentary democracy and this has made millions of people up and down the country very angry.
