Dear Andrew Mitchell MP

I am writing to express my utter horror at the actions taken by the Prime Minister last week.  I have signed the petition seeking to stop the prorogation of Parliament and attended the protest in Birmingham over the weekend.

I don’t expect you will agree, but I feel it is important to let you know my very strong feelings on this subject. 

The planned prorogation is a deliberate act aimed to prevent a parliamentary democracy functioning as it should.  It is outrageous that parliament should be closed at this critical moment for our country.  Such a disregard for our democracy is unprecedented.

I do hope you will act against this unacceptable abuse of power.

Yours sincerely,

Jenny Wilkinson
Liberal Democrat Parliamentary Candidate for Sutton Coldfield
