I've moved constituencies recently.....

...and my current and previous MP's are against the deal for diametrically opposed reasons.

My current MP is Labour's Angela Smith, who is one of the more pro EU Labour MP's and opposed triggering Article 50 (quite possibly the best moment of her political career and quite courageous for an MP in a marginal constituency that voted by a large margin to leave the EU) She is a supporter of a referendum on the deal and highly unlikely to support the government.

Before that I was in the North East Derbyshire constituency with a recently elected Conservative MP called Lee Rowley who is an ERG group follower of Jacob Rees Mogg. He is publicly opposed to the deal and has already sent a letter of no confidence in Theresa May to the 1922 committee.

What can we learn from this? Whilst the deal may be the best we can get thanks to Theresa May's red lines, ultimately it doesn't make anyone on either side of the fence happy. What a mess the government has made of all this!
