John Mann A different kind of MP
Leading Backbencher, John Mann today delivered a letter to Labour Leader, Ed Miliband urging him to let the people have a say on Europe.
He said “Labour needs to be a Party and Ed a leader who listens to public opinion”.
Having previously highlighted the unfairness of the Labour market towards working class Britons, Mann has called for fundamental reforms in the EU, restricting the free movement of Labour, the exploitation of agency workers and the pass porting of benefits.
Mann has also sent his recent poll findings from a survey of more than 3,000 voters in his Bassetlaw heartland areas where they:
a) Backed Ed Miliband’s proposals on energy
b) Demonstrated how living standards are perceived to have fallen for most people
c) Overwhelmingly want to leave the European Union.
The survey of nearly 3,000 Labour and undecided voters in Bassetlaw living in our Labour heartland areas, a clear message has emerged. 52% of those polled want the UK to leave the EU, 17 % want the UK to stay and 31% are unsure. Of those expressing a view on Europe, 75.2% voted to leave.
Mann commented “Clearly this is concerning not just for the Party but also for the forthcoming Euro Elections. Labour has always been the voice of working class people. On Europe it’s not credible not to trust the people. Now is the right time for Ed Miliband to back a Referendum on Europe”.
“During the banking crisis it would have been foolhardy and irresponsible to create the uncertainty of a European referendum, but now it is right that the people have their say.
Europe is at a crossroads, as events in the Ukraine demonstrate. Europe must change with the modern era. It is now time for a root and branch debate, separate from domestic elections of any kind, to allow the people of the United Kingdom to determine their future relationship with the rest of Europe”.

Campaign to reduce the speed limit outside our schools
In 2011, 3,404 child pedestrians were injured in a road traffic accident as they made their way to or from school. 594 of these were killed or seriously injured. It has been shown that you are seven times more likely to survive if you are hit by a car driving at 20mph than if you are hit at 30mph. When 20mph limits have been introduced elsewhere there was a 21% reduction in road casualties.
