The Liberal Democrats in Berwick-Upon-Tweed believe Anne-Marie Trevelyan’s decision to resign from Government will achieve absolutely nothing, other than providing yet more evidence that our MP is putting Westminster games ahead of her own constituency.
At a time when schools across North Northumberland are facing funding shortfalls, and Berwick Academy is in special measures, our MP had a chance to speak up for our constituency’s education system.
Instead she has walked out, abandoning Berwick's schools, teachers and children to join forces with the hard Brexiteers, pushing a disastrous no deal Brexit which could leave Northumberland’s schools even worse off.
This decision to put her constituency second is totally unacceptable, Berwick deserves better. We need an MP who will make sure the issues which matter in our area are heard in Westminster, not an MP who leaves our constituency voiceless in favouring of rowing with her own Prime Minister.
