'Bickering' MPs' failure and refusal to deliver Brexit triggers pre-Christmas General Election — Robert Jenrick
The MP for Newark said Parliament's decision to hold a December General Election was never his preference.
Robert Jenrick, Housing, Communities and Local Government Secretary, told the Advertiser the current Parliament had run its course and refused to deliver Brexit.
With the ballot in the House of Commons 438 votes to 20 in favour of an election, Mr Jenrick said MPs were consumed by bickering and delay, instead of allowing the country to move forward.
