Mordaunt Backs May As The Last Of The Pizza Club Brexiteers Caves-In
Penny Mordaunt, International Development Secretary, has become the last of the so-called ‘Pizza Club’ Brexiteers to sell-out today.
She even went a step-further, condemning the European Reform Group backed coup as a distraction: “That was not helpful,’ she said. ‘What the public want to see is their members of parliament and their members of government working hard to get the best result for their communities and their country. ‘Everything else that is a distraction to that should cease.”
Effusive in her backing for the Prime Minister, she continued: “She has got my support.We should be supporting her and we should all be working together to get the best result.”
Her climbdown is the latest in a series of capitulations by the Club. Michael Gove was savaged today on Twitter by backbench Brexiteers such as John Redwood:
Advice to Michael Gove – the Withdrawal Agreement you are recommending denies us the Brexit you campaigned for. The alternative cannot be staying in the EU, which would be against everything you promised and against the Manifesto you and I stood on in the 2017 General Election.

Once again, Conservative Brexiteers have fallen well-short of the mark and when the crunch has come, the ‘Pizza Club’ have chosen their careers over their country.
