Tory Re­main­ers urged to act

The Press and Journal (North-East) - - FEATURES -

SIR, – There comes a time in par­lia­ment when MPs must stand up for the na­tional (UK) in­ter­est and not for just for their own or party in­ter­ests.

Day by day it is be­com­ing in­creas­ingly ob­vi­ous, with an es­sen­tially lead­er­less gov­ern­ment re­fus­ing to ac­knowl­edge the po­ten­tially dis­as­trous con­se­quences of the nar­row re­sult of the Brexit ref­er­en­dum, that such a time has ar­rived.

It is of the high­est ur­gency that those in the Con­ser­va­tive Party who voted to re­main in the EU, and who are in the ma­jor­ity both in the party and in gov­ern­ment, have the courage to stand by their prin­ci­ples and de­clare they can no longer sup­port a pol­icy which is so clearly against the na­tional in­ter­est.

There is ab­so­lutely no rea­son why the out­come of the Brexit ref­er­en­dum should be re­garded as set in stone, bear­ing in mind that the re­sult was ob­tained by ex­ag­ger­a­tion and de­ceit on the part of the Brex­i­teers. Surely there must be some­one in the Con­ser­va­tive Party with enough Churchillian spirit to be able to stand up and lead the coun­try along the path of san­ity?
