Thurrock MP Jackie Doyle-Price delivers Brexit vote


MPs have voted by a majority of 384 to allow Theresa May to get Brexit negotiations under way.

Thurrock MP, Jackie Doyle-Price, in her capacity as a whip, announced the rest of the vote to the House.

The MP campaigned to remain in the European Union, and so her position announcing the result has drawn a comment from UKIP MEP Tim Aker.

Cllr Aker said: “Jackie Doyle-Price voted Remain. Sh wants to keep Britain in the EU. Thurrock wants out. It is another issue among
many where she is out of step worth Thurrock’s residents”.

MPs backed the government’s European Union Bill, supported by the Labour leadership, by 498 votes to 114.

But the Scottish National Party and the Liberal Democrat leadership opposed the bill, while 47 Labour MPs and Tory ex-chancellor Ken Clarke rebelled.

The bill now faces further scrutiny in the Commons and the House of Lords before it can become law.

The prime minister has set a deadline of 31 March for invoking Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty, getting official talks with the EU started.

UKIP MEP Tim Aker has responded


  1. JDP represents the Conservative view. She does not represent the Thurrock voters.
    We will remember this at election time.
