NICK Boles MP will face angry Conservative grassroots on Friday, Politicalite can exclusively reveal.
The Tory MP for Grantham & Stamford, is one of the Remoaning Tories conspiring against the clear wishes of the Tory grassroots, to expunge a Clean Brexit as an outcome of the current impasse.
He claims that his ‘Norway-Plus’ alternative proposal has Ministerial backing. However, local Tories were less than impressed and he faced immediate calls for his deselection. Indeed, candidly he admitted that he “probably would” be deselected.
Politicalite has learned that Mr Boles will be facing the wrath of his local Association members this Friday at an all members meeting.
No decision will be taken on Boles’s future at the meeting but it is a desperate attempt on his part to placate the members. Association Chair, Philip Sagar tells members that they should not be put off by the fact that “Nick is not likely to change his views.”
“Media soundbites”, Sagar continues, do “not tell the full story.”
I sincerely doubt that committed Tory Brexiteers will like the full story any more than the soundbites but we shall see…..
