TWO more Tories have quit after Theresa May’s disastrous Brexit plan to keep Britain tied the EU.
Two vice chairs of the Conservative Party have left May’s sinking ship, this time it’s Ben Bradley MP and Maria Caulfield MP quit party roles.
In his resignation letter, Bradley, MP for Mansfield said: “I admit that I voted to Remain in that ballot. What has swayed me over the last two years to fully back the Brexit vision is the immense opportunities that are available from global trade, and for the ability for Britain to be an outward-looking nation in control of our own destiny once again.”
“I fear that this agreement at Chequers damages those opportunities; that being tied to EU regulations, and the EU tying our hands when seeking to make new trade agreements, will be the worst of all worlds if we do not deliver Brexit in spirit as well as in name, then we are handing Jeremy Corbyn the keys to No.10.”
Caulfield said: “The policy may assuage vested interests, but the voters will find out and their representatives will be found out. This policy will be bad for our country and bad for the party.
“The direct consequences of that will be prime minister Corbyn.”
