North East Derbyshire MP Lee Rowley says MP's have 'tied the government's hands' on Brexit

North East Derbyshrie MP Lee Rowley says he has had enough of Politicians trying to stall Britain's exit from the EU

It comes after a lawyer for former Tory Prime Minister Sir John Major spoke in the Supreme Court setting out their opposition to Boris Johnson’s decision to suspend Parliament.

The government insists the suspension was routine.

Mr. Johnson has also come under pressure from the Finnish Prime Minister to outline his updated Brexit plans to the EU by the end of the month.

But the government says "technical" documents have now been sent to Brussels and it insists it won't be bound by an "artificial deadline."

On the suspension of parliament, Conservative MP, Lee Rowley commented: "Yet again we're seeing parliament very keen for the country to go round and round in circles. Parliament doesn't want to make a decision, says what it is against, not what it's for. It's not acheiving anything, it's not passing any laws, it's not talking about anything else other than Brexit and it's not working so the sooner it is over the better.

"I've met Boris a number of times to talk about North East Derbyshire things as well as the wider political landscape. He really does want a deal, he's trying hard, but he wants the greatest flexibility to do that."

Mr Rowley also spoke about the potential for another general election in the near future: "I voted for a general election twice because I think parliament is broken. I think a general election is quite likely in the coming months because parliament doesn't seem to be able to do something.

"I'm going to stand on the same promises that I made in 2017 which I am trying to keep. Leave the EU, leave the single market, leave the customs union, but also to talk about schools, health, roads, transport, welfare, that we need to talk about more in our country and the constituency."
