VICTORY: Tim Yeo Deselected

CCHQ:

“The South Suffolk Conservative Association have voted not to re-adopt Tim Yeo MP as their candidate for the next General Election.  Selection for the South Suffolk constituency will be opened in due course.”

Yeo sobs:

“It has been a privilege to serve as MP for South Suffolk since 1983. I will continue to work for all my constituents until the General Election next year. I am immensely grateful to all those Conservative Party members who voted for me to continue as their MP. I now ask them all to campaign for my successor with the same loyalty and dedication they have shown to me. I will give my full and unqualified support to whoever is chosen as the candidate here in South Suffolk. I wish him or her every success.”

82% turnout. Tories not releasing vote breakdown figures. Bye!

I cannot support an indefinite backstop arrangement, where the EU holds a veto over our ability to exit…”
