The contrast could not be clearer. It was revealed today that over 200 MPs have signed a letter demanding that the government rule out a ‘no deal’ or a clean Brexit. Dame Caroline Spelmen MP broke the news to the BBC’s Westminster Hour program.
Beth Rigby revealed that the signatories include two dozen Tories. Incidentally, these MP’s are rebelling not just against public opinion but their own members who have clearly expressed a preference for a clean Brexit.

Meanwhile, the Parliamentary petition calling for a clean Brexit passed 300,000 signatures today.
As I said at the beginning, the contrast could not be clearer and more marked. Parliamentarians are doing their level best to thwart the will of the people which has been clearly expressed time and time again. Brexiteers will clearly have to keep on pushing and campaigning to stop them.
