BLUE ON BLUE: IDS Condemns Ros Altmann

ids

IDS has condemned his former junior DWP minister Ros Atlmann for her tweet this morning saying voters should not defy Remain MPs. He tells Guido:

“This is a very strange statement. The EU referendum is about the British people having a say over our future, yet a Government minister now seems to be suggesting that they should just obey their MPs – that voters have no right to their own opinions. I believe MPs are there to serve their constituents not, as Ros Altmann believes, to be served by them.”

No love lost there of course. But doubt you’ll see any Remainers defending Ros on this…

UPDATE: Ros apologises:

We know what she really thinks…
