Tory MP: Brexiteers could be dumped from the party by Boris Johnson

A senior Conservative backbencher has said that fervent Eurosceptic MPs could be dumped from the party by Boris Johnson.

Speaking on BBC News this morning, Geoffrey Clifton-Brown said that anyone who voted against a Brexit deal negotiated by the Prime Minister would expect to lose the Conservative whip.

Members of the European Research Group (ERG), a pro-Brexit wing of the Conservative Party, repeatedly refused to support Theresa May’s Brexit deal, and have threatened to vote against Johnson if he doesn’t secure significant changes.

Given that 21 rebel MPs were dumped by Boris last week for opposing a no-deal Brexit, Clifton-Brown says that ERG members expect to be dismissed by the PM, if they don’t back his deal.

“They have already anticipated that possibility,” he told Victoria Derbyshire.

Of course, bringing back a deal from Brussels would involve Boris Johnson demonstrating competence and nouse – two things rarely associated with the PM.

But, if by some miracle he does manage to reach an agreement with the EU, Boris might have to ditch many of the Brexiteers who so enthusiastically supported his leadership campaign. Politics is a strange, strange world.

  1. Johnson speaks for me totally, he is at least wanting to gain the upper hand which is the only way to get a deal. Unfortunately, the idiots, MP,s cannot see this is the only way to get a deal and sell the country out. Where is our strength coming from if they remain cowardly and facile. As a proud British subject I am disgusted and dismayed at their stupidity.

  2. As a proud British subject I am disgusted and dismayed that a person who holds the highest Public Office in the land says he is likely to BREAK THE LAW what a Charlatan this man is.
