Say No to Knighthood - Robert Syms Tory MP

This petition had 880 supporters

Poole Labour have found today that our constituency's Tory MP is to be granted a Knighthood.

Robert Syms has said that this is down to his public and political services and his work on HS2 dealing with thousands of petitioners and that he is shocked by the news.

No more shocked than we were to hear this.

Robert Syms has done nothing for this town, and by his absence has irrevocably damaged Poole and the surrounding areas. Recently Dorset CCG made the decision to ignore c75k signatures against the closure of Poole's A&E and Maternity Unit dismissing them as "emotional", Labour campaigned hard to keep this vital service in the town. Robert Syms was noticeable in his absence.

Poole Pottery, a historic landmark and tourist attraction within the town is closing down due to high rents. A petition was created to help the company stay in Poole and requested Robert Syms help as the MP for Poole, again silence.

Very shortly after the 2017 General Election, Robert abused someone on Twitter after they called the Tory-DUP agreement a Coalition. Robert was not disciplined and neither did he make any apology. 

Robert had claimed £2000 of taxpayers money for furniture for his designated second home but then had it all "mistakenly" delivered instead his parents' home.

It is a very rare occurrence for Robert to deign to answer questions and queries from his constituents, earning him the nickname of Poole's Missing Person (MP). 

Is this man deserving of an honour? We say No. Say no to Robert Syms' Knighthood and sign this petition.
