Top ‘In’ Tory Changes His Mind and Backs Leave

Just four months ago, Nadhim “this blessed plot” Zahawi wrote on ConHome that “divorce” from the EU would be “worse for everyone“. This afternoon he was named by Conservatives for Reform as a Remain supporter. Tonight, he has changed his mind and declared for Leave:

If we leave, we can set about our task of creating an increasingly agile pro-business country, leading the world in innovation and technology while remaining a political and moral power. A country that can change itself and change the world. A country that recognises the greatness we already have, but pushes on to something that is ever greater still. I’m saddened, but on balance the chances of creating the greater Britain I want to see are increased by leaving the EU.

The Boris effect?

Quote of the Day

Julie Burchill on the bigotry of remainers…

They have felt free to indulge in the forbidden taste-thrill of bigotry for once in their self-censoring lives. The parasexual kick derived from hating the old and the working-class has energised a supine and smug ruling-class who have outed themselves as the true enemy within.”
