Re: The Brexit referendum thread: potential consequences for GB, EU and the Brits in

Your point - like many of your other points - are unfounded - of course the more local the constituency the more power the people who elect that person have over their actions - and therefore oversight. This is incredibly basic stuff.
But that has nothing to do with my point. However, if you wish to go down this route to its logical conclusion, then again, Brexit makes little material difference here. People can already raise issues to their local MP, who can, if he/she so chooses, raise it in Parliament. This won't change.

When has the EU ever listened to Farage's concerns?
They've had to every time he takes the floor. Not sure what your point is. How often do any MPs listen to (or better said, escalate) any concern that isn't of benefit to them?
