Stewart Jackson MP could be an ex-MP for Peterborough as PM calls for General Election on June 8th 2017



Political Dynamite? You decide...


The Prime Minister is calling for a snap General Election on June 8th, an election which will be fought under pre-boundary change rules, and requires a two thirds majority vote of MPs in favour.

The PBROTRIB says: The snap General Election locally in Peterborough could see the demise of the sitting Conservative MP Stewart Jackson actually losing his seat.  His majority at the last General Election was well down, despite an "over ambitious" election expenses spend, and an earlier tussle over the expenses for his private swimming pool. Mrs Jackson has yet to reveal how much he actually spent on legal representation, to argue with the parliamentary bean counters....   

Conversely with his 'finger in the wind' Mr Jackson might wish to avoid the prospect of defeat, and decide not to stand for re-election. 

Jackson is said not to be happy in his current role of backbench backroom 'brexit' support, and the 'hard brexit' route the matter is taking. His weekly polemic, we dubbed it  "Westminster Pondlife" in the local paper, has been viewed as being wholly out of touch with the Peterborough electorate, and in the process lost him many Conservative voters of long standing.

Jacskon is known to have fallen out with many voters and young families, his antics over the childrens centres are still remembered, he regularly excludes Peterborough residents them from his social media feeds. 

This is what they get when logging onto the Mps' Twitter account:

In addition Stewart Jackson has repeatedly fallen out with his own Conservative Peterborough City Council, a council soon to be swallowed up in the new Combined Authority vote on May 4th.

In any event, many believe Cambridge will be the winner with Peterborough once again being pushed to the margins. Clearly the City of Peterborough now needs a strong champion in Parliament, and sadly Stewart Jackson of 'mpsexpenses' fame really isn't it. Sometimes the truth hurts...let us hope someone is listening.

This is the speech by Mrs May delivered outside Number 10 Downing Street earlier today:

I have just chaired a meeting of the Cabinet, where we agreed that the government should call a general election, to be held on June 8.

I want to explain the reasons for that decision, what will happen next and the choice facing the British people when you come to vote in this election.

Last summer, after the country voted to leave the European Union, Britain needed certainty, stability and strong leadership, and since I became Prime Minister the government has delivered precisely that.

Despite predictions of immediate financial and economic danger, since the referendum we have seen consumer confidence remain high, record numbers of jobs, and economic growth that has exceeded all expectations.

We have also delivered on the mandate that we were handed by the referendum result.
Britain is leaving the European Union and there can be no turning back. And as we look to the future, the government has the right plan for negotiating our new relationship with Europe.

We want a deep and special partnership between a strong and successful European Union and a United Kingdom that is free to chart its own way in the world.

That means we will regain control of our own money, our own laws and our own borders and we will be free to strike trade deals with old friends and new partners all around the world.

This is the right approach, and it is in the national interest. But the other political parties oppose it.

At this moment of enormous national significance there should be unity here in Westminster, but instead there is division.

The country is coming together, but Westminster is not.

In recent weeks Labour has threatened to vote against the deal we reach with the European Union.

The Liberal Democrats have said they want to grind the business of government to a standstill.

The Scottish National Party say they will vote against the legislation that formally repeals Britain's membership of the European Union.

And unelected members of the House of Lords have vowed to fight us every step of the way.

Our opponents believe that because the government's majority is so small, our resolve will weaken and that they can force us to change course.

They are wrong.

They under-estimate our determination to get the job done and I am not prepared to let them endanger the security of millions of working people across the country.
