Our MP, Maria Caulfield, is on Lewes radio station Rocket FM tomorrow morning from 7.15am - 8.15am, answering listeners' questions. Does anyone have a question they would like us to ask Maria?

Maria, the town of Lewes voted Remain and many people who live there have jobs that depend on being able to sell services to the European Union using the single market passporting system. Those jobs are under threat.
With the pound down 18% before anyhting has even happened and . alarm around the City at the prospect of hard Brexit do you regret beuing so prominent a Brexit supporter
What would you like to say to the many angry remain voters in your consituency ?

At least with the above question she'll be suitably prepared with an answer she will have scripted beforehand. What a predictable question. Yawn.
Next predictable question to be asked? What does she think about the state of the NHS, especially being a nurse!
Blah blah blah.

I'd ask her something she wasn't expecting to be asked, like what is she going to have for lunch? Where did she go on holiday this year? Is she looking forward Christmas? You know, that sort of thing. Pleasantries. She won't know what's hit her.

1. Southern Rail - what exactly has she done to intercede in a positive manner here? Her electorates' lives, their health and their family relationships are in jeopardy.
2. NHS - What is her stance? As a NHS nurse why have we not heard more
from her about this?
3. Housing - why did she continually stand on the side lines over the St
Anne's site debacle when families could be living there by now in genuinely low cost housing? What has she actually done to alleviate the housing crisis in this neck of the woods?
4. Why did she publicly cheer lead Osborne and Cameron in their resolve to impose 'austerity' (now by the way expediently dropped by May in this current variation of 'Conservative'?)
5. On how many public occasions has she visited Lewes? What official
meetings has she had with the Lewes electorate?
6. her office is in Newhaven. Why have we not heard her anger over the sadness of that decaying town and the fate of its stalwart citizens?

If I were her I'd say it was a national referendum, not a local one. What do you want? Lewes to remain in the EU while other parts of the UK leave? Nationally, the vote was 52% to 48% to leave the EU neo-liberal project.

The fall in the pound was not caused by brexit.
An avalanche may be triggered by an explosion but the root cause is snow - in this case the dire economics of Osbourne and the parlous state of UK finances, an overvalued currency, quantitative easing, housing market bubble and awful balance of payments deficit and huge debt.
Britain continues to live beyond its means which spells disaster for future generations.
We are extremely lucky not to be as fully enmeshed in the idiotic EU project as other countries and lucky to have some flexibility, but markets dislike political rows and dithering so perhaps the remainers should stop whinging, delaying the result and doing the country down and try and contribute to making a success of it.

Maria, why do people use phrases like "neo-Liberal project" as if they mean anything, when really they are just phrases made up to imply an elite acting in their own interests, and they have no bearing on the reality of what the EU actually is?

Billy Bull - perhaps you'd tell us 'the reality of what the EU actually is', particularly in relation to the Euro, the treatment of Greece (including forced privatisation, slashing of pensions and benefits), and the continuing high youth unemployment in much of the Eurozone. In addition, why do you think former President of the Commission Barosso was given a plum job by Goldman Sachs so soon after his retirement?
