With the current unrest in Parliament - linked to indecision around Brexit - Honiton Nub News contacted local MP Neil Parish to find out his thoughts on what is going on.

He said: “I supported the PM in his call for a general election, so the country can decide who deals with Brexit.

"Parliament is not functioning properly.

"There is no majority for the executive, MPs are not respecting the referendum result – and are now refusing to face public opinion.

"It can’t go on. After Party conference, the impasse must be broken at the earliest opportunity.

"I want to get on with leaving the EU, recruiting 20,000 extra police officers, providing a £14 billion cash boost for schools, 20 new hospital upgrades and transformative infrastructure investment on transport and superfast fibre broadband.

"These are all things which are crucial for our area.”
