Tories and Leavers Support Deselection of Rebels

Snap polling by YouGov has found that – by whopping majorities – Tory and Leave voters want anti-No Deal rebels to be deselected by the Conservative Party if they vote with Jeremy Corbyn tonight.

YouGov asked, “Do you think Conservative members of parliament who vote to block a No Deal Brexit, should or should not be allowed to stand as Conservatives at the next general election?” Predictably, Labour and the Lib Dems are in favour of the anti-No Deal MPs continuing…

Among the country as a whole, 40% of people believe they should be allowed to stand as Conservatives, while the other 60% think they either should be deselected (34%) or don’t know (26%).

“Come on Emily, if we really were like a Middle East terrorist group, don’t you think Jeremy would’ve invited us to a conference fringe meeting before now?”
