Do Politicians have any principles?

In the EDP just before Christmas Norman Lamb stated “In terms of Norfolk in 2018 the first duty is the representation of people in my constituency“.

Could he therefore please explain how he and his party, which has “Democrat” in its name and is resolute in its belief of elected representation, can even contemplate ignoring the will of the people regarding Brexit or using the House of Lords to frustrate the leaving process.

Also I could never understand why the LibDems would wish to be part of the EU in the first place bearing in mind that it is controlled by unelected bureaucrats.

Yours faithfully,

David Ramsbotham
