Dear Sir William, Thank you for contacting me about the Meaningful Vote in relation to the UK’s withdrawal from the EU. As I am sure you are aware, the Government decided on Monday 10th December not to put the Withdrawal Agreement to a vote in Parliament. This is because the deal was likely to have been heavily defeated. Instead, the Prime Minister has met, and is continuing to meet, with European leaders to seek reassurances regarding the Northern Ireland backstop. The Prime Minister has said that “discussions are continuing to explore further political and legal assurances” and that the Government “are also looking closely at new ways of empowering the House of Commons to ensure that any provision for a backstop has democratic legitimacy”. The Government intends to put a Withdrawal Agreement before Parliament for a Meaningful Vote on the week commencing 14thJanuary. I will evaluate any new deal on its merits and come to a decision on how to vote. Until the clarifications made by European leaders to the Prime Minister become clear, I will listen to all views ahead of 14th January. This is a finely balanced decision, which is critical to the future of our country. In the meantime, I have expressed concerns to the Prime Minister over the lack of preparations being made if the deal is rejected by Parliament, and the UK leaves the EU on World Trade Organisation terms. Please find a link to my question to the Prime Minister in the House of Commons here: https://parliamentlive.tv/event/index/73fe76a9-f5bf-41a1-bcbc-f75f3d3d5168 You may be aware that I am the new Vice Chairman of Brexpats, the All-Party Parliamentary Group for British Expats living in Continental Europe and European Expats in the UK. As such, I very much welcome the fact that the Prime Minister has been clear with EU citizens in the UK that even in the event of no deal, their rights will be protected. Please rest assured I remain actively listening to constituents on this important matter, and do feel free to continue giving me your views, as the situation develops. Thank you for taking the time to contact me. This is an extremely fast-moving situation, and I will do my utmost to keep you updated with further developments. Yours sincerely, Greg Hands Member of Parliament for Chelsea and Fulham

Letter from Democracy 17.4 Campaigns Officer to her local MP.


Dear Ms. O'Donelan

I hope that you are well. As my constituency MP, I noticed that you were recently taking evidence from George Osborne on behalf of the Northern Powerhouse in respect of education. I do not know if you are aware but the aforementioned person is currently attending the Bilderberg Meeting in Turin as I type and is a 'regular'.

In 2010, former NATO Secretary-General and Bilderberg member Willy Claes admitted that Bilderberg attendees are mandated to implement decisions that are formulated during the annual conference of power brokers. If this is the case, it would violate laws in numerous countries that forbid politicians from being influenced by foreign agents in secret.

​It therefore stands to reason that you ​are now connected to Osborne and I require an immediate report as to why you sought the advice of a Bilderberg attendee when formulating plans for this country.

It is imperative that I receive an immediate response before I consider taking this matter to the Press/exposing this 'oversight' by film.

I look forward to hearing from you.
