SOUTH Essex MPs have failed to comment on the cabinet crisis, the future of Prime Minister Theresa May or what next for Brexit.

Yesterday saw confirmation David Davis could not accept her Brexit approach describing it as a “dangerous strategy” which was giving “too much away, too easily”.

Then Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson followed with his resignation just before the Prime Minister was due to make a speech endorsing a “cabinet agreed” strategy for Brexit.

During the day of turmoil the Echo asked for the views of those the people of Essex have elected for their views, but what followed was deafening silence.

No south Essex MPs provided a comment despite requests.

Rebecca Harris for Castle Point, John Baron for Basildon and Billericay, Mark Francois for Wickford and Rayleigh, David Amess for Southend West and Stephen Metcalfe for south Basildon and west Thurrock - all failed to respond before the newspaper went to press.

James Duddridge, MP for Rochford and Southend East, declined to comment.

All are Conservatives.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said the Prime Minister “has no authority left and is incapable of delivering Brexit”.

“With her Government in chaos, if she clings on, it’s clear she’s more interested in hanging on for her own sake than serving the people of our country,” he said.

Appearing on BBC Radio 4’s Today programme just hours after his midnight resignation, Mr Davis said a leadership challenge would be the “wrong thing to do” and insisted he believed Mrs May was a “good prime minister”. Asked if she could survive, he replied: “Oh yes, of course.”

However this was before Boris Johnson, one of the leading figures during the Vote Leave campaign also left the cabinet.

It followed discussions at Chequers on Friday when a deal on an economic approach had reportedly been done.
