Philip Lee Resigns Over Brexit

Tory MP for Bracknell and Justice Minister, Dr Phillip Lee, has resigned at a Bright Blue conference of Tory wets. He says the government’s Brexit policy threatens human rights – skip to the very end of the video to hear him flounce out.

“I am incredibly sad to have had to announce my resignation as a minister in Her Majesty’s Government so that I can better speak up for my constituents and country over how Brexit is currently being delivered.”

Who?

UPDATE: Phillip Lee says in his resignation statement:

“As a Member of Parliament, I also have a major responsibility to my constituency of Bracknell…I cannot ignore that it is to them that I owe my first responsibility.”

His Bracknell constituency voted leave (53.9%). Phillip Lee has delusions of becoming leader of the party. According to a government Brexiter source,  he’ll be lucky if he isn’t deselected by his Association at the next election…

Former Governor of the Bank of England Mervyn King…

“There are arguments for remaining in the EU and there are arguments for leaving the EU. But there is no case whatever for giving up the benefits of remaining without obtaining the benefits of leaving.”
