I WOULD like to protest in the strongest terms at the audacity of Boris Johnson who has taken it upon himself to gag Parliament for his own ends.

He was elected not by the country but by his own party and only 0.13% of the population, roughly the size of a decent football crowd.

How can we call that taking back control?

We, the public, have no control and neither do our representatives in Parliament since this dictator has deemed it unnecessary for Parliament to meet and make decisions on our behalf.

This is a critical time for this country’s future and our children’s future.

If Johnson pulls us out of the EU without a deal, he will destroy much of what is good in Britain.

Already the pound has dropped since the Referendum and is continuing to fall. Investment is flooding out. Uncertainty and insecurity abound.

We need a stable government that cares for its people and not just for itself.
