WATCH: Queen Remoaner Anna Soubry Threatens To QUIT
Queen of Remoaning has sensationally threatened to quit the Conservative Party last night. Speaking on the BBCs Newsnight program, she also said that Theresa May should ‘stand-up’ to Brexiteers such as Boris Johnson and Jacob Rees-Mogg.
Ms Soubry told Newsnight:
Unless Theresa stands up and sees off these people she is in real danger of losing huge swathes of not just the parliamentary party but the Conservative Party.
And if that means leaving the party, form some new alliance, God knows I don’t know.
But we just simply cannot go on like this any longer.
They are not the Tory party I joined 40 years ago and it is about time Theresa stood up to them and slung ’em out.
We have to get a Conservative Party which is what it has been for decades, the party I joined 40 years ago, proper, One Nation, centrist, small l socially liberal, fiscally sensible, economically sound Conservatives.
Her comments are likely to fan the flames of an increaseingly bitter civil war within the government over the direction it should take as it enters the second phase of Brexit negotiations.
