Oakeshott BLASTS Morgan: You Dont Believe In Brexit!!
Isabel Oakeshott, political commentator and ardent Brexiteer savaged Nicky Morgan, one of the Conservative rebels live on BBCs Question Time.
She dismissed Morgan’s opening defence of her rebellion as “sanctimonious twaddle” to rapturous applause. Oakeshott continued:
We’ve heard a lot about putting country before Party. I think this is all about you because you dont believe in Brexit, do you ultimately?
Is this about a loyalty test now?
Oakeshott, unabashed retorted:
I am really happy you have brought us onto the question of loyalty because I want to ask you, as a Conservative MP, how you felt as you trotted through the lobbies with Labour MPs who were later to be heard singing the Red Flag. How did you feel?
Morgan, drowned out by audience applause for Oakeshott held up her hands and said:
“I had no idea. I didn’t hear anyone singing anything.
Oakeshott finished off:
You have humiliated the Prime Minister. You have undermined her negotiating position and you are not standing up for what the people of this country voted for.
The loud audience applause and whistling told us all we needed to know about who won this exchange. Later Oakshotte declared:
You have no idea how powerful the vested interests are that want to keep us in the EU and they will stop at nothing to ensure we do.
She gave easily one of the best performances by a Brexiteer on Question Time for a long time.
