The Derbyshire County Branch of the Conservative Party have declared that they will not be contesting any seats in the upcoming EU elections. Traditional Tory voters and supporters feel betrayed by Conservative Prime Minister Theresa May over for a Brexit period poised to last more than three years.
Due to Mrs. May’s indecisiveness and weakness, the Conservatives on Derbyshire County Council which supported a motion against contesting seats in the European Union elections.
Conservative Group Leader, Cllr Barry Lewis, stated: “This was not an easy decision to take and goes against every natural instinct we have as Conservatives to support our hardworking MEPs and candidates.
“However, we were promised, following the largest public mandate a UK government has ever received that we would be out by the 29th March.
“The Prime Minister said we would be out by that date countless times, so did many others in government and yet here we are racing towards the end of April and facing an increased prospect of participating in a European Election in May that should not be happening.
“More significantly for our residents and local businesses is the fact that the uncertainty continues.
“Whether you voted to Leave or Remain, the vast majority of people recognize there is a democratic obligation to deliver what was promised and that government should not abdicate their promise to deliver it.
“Moreover, I informed Brandon that inviting Jeremy Corbyn to the table in an attempt to pass a deal was in our view a serious mistake for the Prime Minister and, consequently, our Party.
“Especially given the perceived problems of antisemitism and the disturbing brand of left-wing views being expressed within the Labour Party under his leadership. Jeremy Corbyn and the Labour Party under him, deserve no credibility.”
Life-long Conservative Party voters will undoubtedly flock to anti-establishment pro-Brexit political parties to give the pro-EU establishment a reminder of their objections to the European Union and the pro-Remain camps disdain for the democratic mandate of the British people. UKIP and The Brexit Party will be likely to perform well in the EU elections.
