Soubry Backs New Centrist Party

Anna Soubry suggests to the New Statesman that she would consider defecting from the Tories if a new centrist party was formed with Labour and LibDem Remainers:

“If it could somehow be the voice of a moderate, sensible, forward-thinking, visionary middle way, with open minds – actually things which I’ve believed in all my life – better get on with it.”

Soubry has done it before, she leaft the Tories in 1981 to join the Social Democrat Party (SDP) from 1981 until it was dissolved in 1988. Guido reckons she would do it again.

Penny for the thoughts of Broxtowe Tory association…

UPDATE: Good timing for Clegg to be sitting on the Labour frontbench:

Quote of the Day

Lucy Allan explains her positive comments about the Brexit Party…

“If EU elections are held, Leave supporting voters will want to vote for Leave supporting candidates… Usual party loyalties will be eclipsed by the Leave v Remain divide. It’s good to see strong candidates in the Leave camp. However, I sincerely hope we leave the EU before these elections are held so that we can move on and not waste time and money on unnecessary EU elections.”
