Turncoat Tolhurst ‘Claimed to Be Pro-Leave’

Oh dear… according to Quentin Letts, newly converted Remain supporter Kelly Tolhurst personally told him she was a Brexiteer:

Kelly says she is “surprised” by Quentin’s tweet because she “only finally decided last week”. Oh really…

When she was fighting Mark Reckless in Rochester last year, Tolhurst included an anti-EU immigration pledge as one of the six pillars of her campaign, promising “action – not just talk”. She said she wanted the time from which EU migrants can claim benefits “extended to five years… immediately”. More than the PM achieved in his renegotiation. Now she says the renegotiation has secured the immigration changes she desired. What was that about “Action – not just talk”?

Back in 2012 she even supported Reckless’s campaign against the EU:

She campaigned and won her constituency as an avowed Eurosceptic. She told journalists she was a Leaver. What possibly could have changed Kelly’s mind?

Quote of the Day

Brexit Secretary David Davis on Emily Thornberry’s request for a vote on Article 50:

“What she is trying to wrap up in a pseudo-democratic masquerade, is the most anti-democratic proposal I have heard for some time. She wants to deny the will of the British people and up with that we will not put.”
