I READ with interest last week’s article concerning Manchester People’s Assembly’s protest outside the office of MP Chris Green.

Rafe Comm from the MPA stated the group protested because Mr Green wasn’t listening to his constituents.

It has been said previously but the people of Leigh clearly spoke at the EU referendum, voting unanimously by two to one to leave the EU.

However the newly-elected MP for Leigh Jo Platt recently chose to ignore her constituents’ wishes by voting against the repeal bill, towing the party line.

The referendum was not about party politics, it was about remaining in or leaving the EU, which includes leaving the single market, customs union, European Court of Justice et al.

Does Mr Comm consider Mrs Platt to have listened to her constituents when she voted?

Are double standards at work here?
