Our appalling MP feels that ,“Although 52% voted to Remain, fewer than 2,500 votes prevented my constituency of Lewes from being Leave. To suggest that 2,500 votes is the difference between an MP being at odds with one’s constituents, and an MP being a champion of their constituency’s principles is a shallow argument……”
She goes on to stress the rights of minorities in a democratic system …….Ha bitter ha !
Only 52% eh!!!!Pity that 48% of the countryare being trampled underfoot while ethnic cleansing is prioritised over jobs, taxation growth and public services then.

What's sauce for the goose ... If Maria had achieved 2500 votes less in 2015, Norman Baker would still be the MP for Lewes - and with a slightly larger majority!

The most blood boiling thing was when newsreaders and Tory ministers were denouncing the Aslef strike ballot as invalid because it had a turn out of around 70% with 52% voting to strike... now why do those figures sound familiar?!

Only 38% of Lewes consituents voted for Maria, so it's hardly as if she's representative of anyone.

You're the half wit mate. I'ts less than 38%, actually about 27%, as not everyone turns out.
I accept having a Tory MP and agree we'll have a Tory government for most of the rest of my lifetime, thanks to the ineptness of Corbyn and unwordliness of his fan base.
But when she starts talking about 2,500 more people in the constituency voting to remain she's on thin ground, seeing only about 1,000 more voted for her than Norman - and far more people didn't vote for her than did.

"storming Norman" and the lib dems were soundly beaten at the general election and tbh we needed a change which undoubtedly upset the Norman worshippers. He lost -get over it.

Yes. Norman lost. Soundly beaten too.
But I would bet my shirt that there are more than her majority of idiots out there who now regret voting for the useless Tory freeloader and would rather Norman was back.

In what world is a 1,000-vote majority "soundly beaten"? If it were 5,000, 10,000, 15,000 votes - and there are MPs with that sort of majority - yes, it would be "soundly beaten".
"They were obviously prepared to go with the majority, unlike you !!"
But the majority of voters did not vote for Maria Caulfield. I'd suggest you choose your words more carefully.

If you think Norman was "soundly beaten" with a margin of 1,000 I would love to hear how you would describe Nusrat Ghani's victory in Wealden by a majority of almost 23,000 and a share of the vote of 57%, as opposed to Caulfield's barely more than a third.
"You can hardly protect those that didn't even turn out !!!! They were obviously prepared to go with the majority, unlike you !!"
But the majority didn't vote for Caulfield, did they?

Webbo has introduced measures to limit the number of political posts and restore the forum to its initial purpose, but rather than abide by the new rules, Paul Newman has sneakily got past the blocks and is off ranting again. He seems to suffer from some form of compulsion, as he's just repeating the same points over and over again. It's utterly pointless. Just give it a rest, please.

With your attention focused on voting percentages the 0.001% who own 99%of the world are busy clawing in that last 1%. Can you blame them for thinking we are a tad on the dense side and that the world is overpopulated?
