Warrington and Halton Green Party leader Steph Davies has shown her utter contempt for democracy with her apparent labelling of Brexiters as a ‘Tory-UKIP Alliance”.
Whilst ‘Remain’ campaigners are obviously disappointed in the result, most are taking it on the chin and yielding to the democratic process, forgoing the need to insult those who happen to have voted differently.
I must remind Steph Davies that across Warrington, voters backed ‘Leave’ by 54.3% to 45.7%. This is a decisive result that must be respected. Also, I can assure the Green Party in Warrington that many people on both the left as well as the right of politics voted ‘Leave’.
As UKIP’s health spokesman at the last General Election, I can say with gladness that now we have voted to leave, our treasured NHS will now be safe from the clutches of the EU/US TTIP agreement that would have seen American drug and insurance companies elbow their way into our healthcare. I would have thought that the local Green Party would at least join me in celebrating on this issue.
