My local MP is one Derek Thomas, a Tory elected on a whisker-thin majority.

I have written to him as follows, incensed by the public pronouncement by the “Petitions Committee” to the effect that they will ignore a petition now approaching 6 million signatures in favour of a second referendum.

Good morning Mr Thomas

If I discover that you have voted against the proposal to call for a second Referendum,  I will actively campaign to see that you are not elected at the next General Election. I detest and despise political parties, and my vote for whoever stands against you (I am presuming Andrew George) will be for him personally and not for his LibDem party. Your paper-thin majority will disappear.

One of the greatest British thinkers, John Maynard Keynes, once said “If circumstances change, I have a duty to change my mind” or words to that effect.

Do you and your political colleagues not understand that, contrary to the nonsense peddled by the “Petitions Committee” any public trust in politics and politicians has already been destroyed, and to keep on insisting that “the will of the people must be obeyed” is a perfect example of insanity – repeating the same thing over and over, expecting a different result? I call it the May Syndrome, but it has affected much of The Commons as a whole.

If the will of the people is to be respected once expressed, why do we bother to have elections at all, especially General Elections? Why has our system not decreed that once an MP is elected, he stays elected until he dies, is thrown out, or resigns? If we are allowed the opportunity once every five years (or less) to change our minds about our MP, why can we not be accorded the same privilege when it comes to a referendum?
