DEVIZES MP Claire Perry was left disappointed on Tuesday evening as the House of Commons overwhelmingly voted against Theresa May’s latest Brexit deal.

Just hours before the vote was taken at 7pm on Tuesday she tweeted: “My constituents are utterly fed up with this happening in Parliament as we bash ourselves to bruises over Brexit. Vote for the deal, let’s get this done and let’s get back to all the other things we have to work on.”

Last week on a visit to Devizes just days after she had caused a stir when she had joined two other ministers in threatening to resign unless a no-deal Brexit was taken off the table. But they were appeased by Mrs May giving MPs a free vote on the subject which is due to take place tonight (Wed)yesterday evening.

During her visit to Smallbones on the Hopton Industrial Estate she was feeling confident Mrs May would secure a majority on her Brexit deal but that confidence was misplaced as MPs last night the Prime Minister lost by 149 votes.

Michelle Donelan, the Tory MP for Chippenham and a junior Government whip, has previously voted with the Government on the Brexit issue. On Tuesday, she voted for the Prime Minister’s Brexit deal.

Back in June last year, she said: “I did vote Remain but I am a democrat and believe we must honour the referendum result. It was a majority of around 1.3 million more people voting to Leave than voting Remain.”

A spokesman for Devizes for EU said after the vote: “The Commons has again decisively voted against a deal that failed to honour the promises made for Brexit both during and since the last referendum.

“The PM should ensure that any extension of the Article 50 deadline is used to deliver the clarity about Brexit that has been missing from the last two-and-a-half years of debate.

“When the real costs of Brexit and new facts are properly debated, Claire Perry MP will have the chance to consider whether to give her constituents a real say and a new vote. It’s time to Put It To The People & demand a People’s Vote. We invite you to join us in that endeavour and to march with Devizes for EU in London on 23 March.”

The MP for North Wiltshire James Gray voted against the Government's Brexit deal on Tuesday night joining the 391 MP who voted down the deal and adding to the 75 rebel Conservatives.

Last week he wrote: "I will vote against Wednesday’s rather childish attempt to take ‘No Deal‘ off the table. (I felt that Amber Rudd, its authoress, was given a surprisingly easy time of it at a speech she made in North Wiltshire last Friday)."

He said he would vote against any unreasonable extension of Article 50 on Thursday (March 14). Unless there was a "small technical extension to give time for the necessary legislation."

As a conviction politician he said that from careful consideration of the various arguments, he had, "a lifelong dislike of the EU, for the 52 per cent who voted to leave in North Wilts. "

He said the outcomes of the series of parliamentary votes this week will have a "decisive influence over life in Britain for decades and generations to come."

The MP said it was a heavy personal responsibility for colleagues who have to weigh up what is best for their constituents, the country and their parties.

He said: "The subtle black arts of whipping, influence, patronage; opinion in the media and social media; the views of well-respected colleagues; long-standing political beliefs.

"These and a thousand other influences crowd in on the MP’s thinking, which is all then distilled down into a vote."
