Heavy rain couldn't keep our MP away from holding a planned street surgery in Winchester High Street today.
Steve Brine and his team spent the busy lunchtime period at the iconic Buttercross meeting constituents and chatting with people on their lunch-break.
Brexit was, of course, the main topic of conversation following the MP losing the Conservatve Whip in Parliament for voting to block a no-deal exit from the EU but there were a number of other issues raised.
Steve says; "I love doing these street surgeries and constituents really value the chance to chat with me about whatever is on their mind. MPs get such a bad wrap these days and I think it just breaks the spell for an MP to be standing on the Buttercross ready to chat in an open and accessible way. We will be back soon enough."
