The General Election result showed that the will of the nation was still to leave the European Union, Lichfield and Burntwood’s MP has said.
Michael Fabricant retained the seat for the Conservatives and saw his majority stretch out to more than 23,000.
The MP spoke after the result to confirm that the working majority his party now enjoyed meant that Brexit could now go ahead unimpeded.
“The whole nation should be cheering because there is no hung Parliament.
“The people voted three years agoo to leave – and many people said that this General Election was the Brexit election.
“Well if it was, it shows that people still want to leave.
“And because we don’t have a hung Parliament, we can do just that.”Conservative MP Michael Fabricant
Mr Fabricant added that the ability to deal with Brexit without ongoing battles in the House of Commons would allow attention to be focused on other areas.
“It will also mean we can concentrate on important domestic issues such as the NHS and education which are both so important in Staffordshire.”Conservative MP Michael Fabricant
