Anna Soubry, Tory MP for Broxtowe and leading Remoaner and advocate for a Peoples Vote, had a very bad day yesterday.
She was involved in an open shouting match with Nicky Morgan, a fellow Tory MP nominally on the same side and she saw, at least for now, her hope of an extension for Article 50 shot down in flames.
So, when the BBC invited her onto Newsnight the sparks could reasonably be expected to fly and they did.
“As I observe my party and the way it is going, I despair. I despair at what is happening to our country. “I find my party drifting over to the right but more importantly, what we haven’t had is good leadership.
“We’ve had pitiful leadership in my own party but also the Labour Party.”
Soubry is an exceptionally poor loser. Long may she continue to despair because the more she despairs the more Brexiteers will have reason to cheer.
