Tory MPs Joke: “Arise, Sir Mark”

ARISE

Westminster is awash with speculation as to what caused the once hardline Eurosceptic Mark Pritchard to sell out and back Remain. Pritchard used to describe himself as a “mainstream Eurosceptic”, was a prominent member of the “81 group” of Tory EU rebels and even considered defecting to UKIP. Yet this week he turned turncoat and told the Sunday Times he is a “reluctant inner“.  Tory MPs are mockingly referring to Pritchard as “Sir Mark”. Others unkindly suggest the international man of mystery has been promised a junior ministerial gig, though Pritch says he made his mind up a year ago. To say his colleagues are unimpressed with his defection to the Remain campaign would be an understatement…
