Call for St Albans and Harpenden MPs to stand down

Call for St Albans and Harpenden MPs to stand down

Stand down as MPs for St Albans and Hitchin & Harpenden respectively.

Why is this important?

63% of St Albans District voted to remain in the EU on June 23rd. Both Anne Main and Peter Lilley campaigned tirelessly in public debates, local newspapers, social media and on the streets to leave the European Union.
The referendum result provides a clear message, from 54,208 constituents, that voters in St Albans District overwhelmingly want to remain in the EU. This is in clear contradiction of the beliefs of Anne Main and Peter Lilley, making their position as MPs representing their constituents untenable. Having lost the support of the local electorates on this key issue, they can no longer credibly hold this office.

  • From 2006 - 2009, Main charged the taxpayer £62,060 (over £291/night) for a “second home” her adult daughter lived in rent-free. ( Main was ordered to repay just £7,100 and apologise. Main did privately apologise to the House of Commons but, 8 years later, she is yet to apologise to her constituents. ( In 2016, Main voted for the UK to leave the EU ( Ignoring the 54,208 constituents (63%) who voted remain.
  • She is someone who has discredited herself numerous times and is not fit to represent her constituency. Especially after supporting Brexit.
