Nick Ferrari Asks Tory MP: Are You A Brexit Mutineer?

  • RTSNP MP Angus Mac Neil was put on the spot over whether he wanted Brexit to fail

LONDON - 15 Conservative MPs who plan to vote against the government on an amendment to the withdrawal bill have been branded "mutineers" by The Daily Telegraph in a front page splash that has caused outrage in Westminster.

Anna Soubry, one of the leading rebels, initially hit out at the "blatant bullying" by the newspaper of those who intend to defy the government.

Nick then put the words of fellow Tory MP Bernard Jenkin, who said that anyone who votes against enshrining the date of Brexit in law must answer allegations that they want to stop Brexit.

However, she added that she took being named as a "badge of honour", adding on Twitter that "a number of Tory MPs (are) outraged they've been left off!"

"But we want a proper Brexit, one that works for jobs and industry, that's what we're trying to get".

They argue that the move will limit the Prime Minister's flexibility if negotiations with Brussels drag on until the last minute. "That is not a lot to ask for in a democracy".

Veteran MP Clarke labelled the amendment to make the day the United Kingdom leaves the European Union binding, making sure that Brexit happens at 11pm on 29 March 2019 "utterly foolish" and "silly".

The MPs later won support from Labour colleagues fighting against a hard Brexit with Chuka Umuna, the former shadow cabinet minister, saying the front page was "an ideological witch-hunt to bully Tory MPs to go against their instincts to do what they think best for our country".

Others listed include the former Chancellor Kenneth Clarke, the former Education Secretary Nicky Morgan, the chairman of the Commons Foreign Affairs Committee Tom Tugendhat and Sarah Wollaston, the chairman of the Commons Liaison Committee.

But critics warn the European Union withdrawal bill - also known as the repeal bill - represents a power-grab by ministers, while others see the legislation as a chance to shape the prime minister's Brexit policy.

Among the critics of the Daily Telegraph's "mutineers" headline was Brexit Minister Steve Baker, who tweeted: "I regret any media attempts to divide our party. It's called journalism. Absurd over-reaction".
