Leading pro-Europe Tory Anna Soubry has threatened to quit the party and form a new political alliance because of Brexit.
The former minister has called on Prime Minister Theresa May to “stand up to” arch Brexiteers like Boris Johnson and Jacob Rees-Mogg and “slung ’em out”.
She told BBC2’s Newsnight: “If it comes to it, I am not going to stay in a party which has been taken over by the likes of Jacob Rees-Mogg and Boris Johnson.
“They are not proper Conservatives.”
It’s a better reason than many.
