THERESA MAY faced a Brexit rebellion by her own MPs yesterday giving the Prime Minister her first major defeat in the Commons.
Treacherous Remain MPs voted FOR a Brexit amendment that will see MPs have a VETO on the final Brexit deal, calling into question if the UK will ever leave the much-hated European Union.
The 12 MPs who voted AGAINST their own Government included:
Dominic Grieve, MP for Beaconsfield,
Ken Clarke MP for Rushcliffe,
Nicky Morgan, MP for Loughborough,
John Stevenson, MP for Carlisle,
Bob Neill, MP for Bromley and Chislehurst,
Stephen Hammond, MP for Wimbledon, Raynes Park, Morden and Motspur Park,
Oliver Heald, MP for North East Hertfordshire,
Anna Soubry, MP for Broxtowe in Nottinghamshire,
Sarah Wollaston, MP for Totnes
Jonathan Djanogly, MP for Huntingdon,
Antoinette Sandbach, MP for Eddisbury
and Heidi Allen, MP for South Cambridgeshire.
The 12 Remoaners haven’t just stabbed their own party in the back, they have stabbed the 17.4m Brexit voters in the back and caused a crisis for Theresa May.
But we can’t be too quick to lay blame at the door of the treacherous MPs, as with all naughty children, we have to lay blame at the door of the authority figure, a leader is supposed to have authority over her MPs, and is supposed to be able to get key legislation through the commons.
Ever since Theresa May lost the election, her authority has slowly but surely been evaporating – Make no mistake that authority has now completely dried up.
This wasn’t minor legislation, this was KEY Government policy that was defeated by twelve Tory MPs. They thought they could go against the consensus, because they know they are in a much stronger position than their own Prime Minister, and their own party leader.
Theresa May supported Remain and the rebellious MPs also supported Remain, if they don’t trust one of their own… how can Brexiteers trust her?
