Nick Smith was labelled as a traitor today on Facebook, after voting to extend article 50, and not representing his constituents.
I got a feeling that he may pay dearly for his remain views when voting next takes place.

Labour have been sat on the fence for so long over Brexit, they got splinters where splinters should not be !

Reading about the 8 labour MPs who "split" off this week, but will not stand down and have a local by-election.

No wonder nobody takes politics (local or nationally) seriously anymore.....

I have come to realise over the last few years that this country of our is the laughing stock of Europe when one talks about members of parliament.
They are supposed to be adults yet they behave like children and have made a fool of themselves and our country over brexit.
I for one will have to think long and hard about voting in the next election, I want an mp who is prepared to stand up for his constituents and not run away when they can’t get they own way over a debate.
As for nick smith it was a wasted vote

I agree darole.
He's a wasted vote.
And he can't undo his decision not to represent his constituents. Silly man.

Chocolate teapot springs to mind when I think of some of the local councillors, borough councillors, A.M.'s and M.P.'s.
A lot of chocolate and a lot of teapot's.

My guess is that as he is not able to make any decisions for his constituents in Blaenau Gwent.
I imagine he would have abstained?

wonder if those pushing for a hard Brexit may have ulterior motives? Just a thought. From what I see a lot of the promises made, ie; More money for the NHS,(yeah right, what a lie that was) No short-term economic disruption,(spending millions on hiring ferries?) We’ll get brand new trade deals all over the world (shouldn't these be in place by now?) There’ll be no damage to trade with the EU Or our cooperation with the EU (huh?) We’ll cut immigration (ha,ha) all these have been pie in the sky and as for us poor forgotten people in Wales as England continues to favour us even less than the EU, up the river without a paddle we'll be.
Most of the high profile brexiteers have been conspicuous by their absence as we head like lemmings over a cliff.

He was a teller so ineligible to vote. What gets me is that they are there to represent their constituents, no matter what their personal point of view is, and as B/Gwent voted out then that is what his objective should be,to get us out, not do what he wants or conform to party view. Constituents 1st at all time as their vote put him where he is. But sadly this is the real world and it doesn't work like that.

Traitorous government sad to say. I'm a PRO-Brexit Eastern Europe immigrant. Despite my opinion about European Union that it should be demolished, because it's a modern face of socialism. I think that the UK Government is failing to deliver what the folk asked for. Theresa May's deal is a surrender to EU law without dignity. And giving away Northern Ireland, as an EU colony is a symbol of that. No deal is the only option left, as EU don't want to negotiate any more. Instead of that the Government propably decides to extend the article 50 and pay ONE BILLION POUNDS fine per any month extension. You got your answer ddraig where the tax payers money are going...

As that was not a question seawolf86, how would your answer suffice? Please give us the link that states this amount of 1 billion pounds, I would be interested to see it and the source, thank you.

Sorry then. You mentioned NHS underfunding and I assumed wrongly. Here is the source, as in many other news platforms:

I often watch the Parliament channel on TV - and its been a silly interest of mine to see how often Nick Smith is seen in the chamber

Well so far I've seen him twice - on each occasion he was a teller.

Now i don't claim he doesn't attend the proceedings because I don't watch it constantly and that would be unfair.

But as one of his constituents I wish I could see him from time to time.

Ah, not really a fine just charging us what it would cost per month to be in the EU, also this is supposition, the EU could decide it won't let us extend article 50 and then we would have a hard brexit.
Gareth, I've not seen much of Nick Smith in parliament either but he must be there occasionally because I've seen clips of him asking questions (on FB) one question I remember was for Mineworkers pensions.

Thanks kay
Well that's the second time he has chosen not to vote on our behalf by being a teller.
He's flaming useless.
Hope he gets voted out for his betrayal of the people.

Watching on tv, I got the impression many of our MPs had no idea what they were voting for. Apparently some if them voted with the ayes and the noes

I thought that too Keanjo, also Teresa May looked like she was losing her mind as well as her voice.
