Today’s Tory infighting is a row between Remainer Anna Soubry and Rob Halfon, who has criticised the former Business Ministers’ worries about hard Brexiteers i.e. former UKIP voters, joining the Conservatives in a fight to topple the PM as “absolute nonsense.” This current rift comes after the biggest Leave donator, Arron Banks, was blocked from becoming a member by party bosses. Remain-backing MPs are also worried of deselection at the next election because of the sudden large increase in their local membership.

‘If you imagine the UK crashing out of the EU with no deal, at some point the EU and the UK are going to have to come back to the negotiating table. They are going to have to talk to each other.’

Maybe they should take her advice, before wasting years of a mini crisis and having to ration food and medical supplies, and change their childish behaviour, Gerry thinks…

The rifts in Labour are becoming clearer by the day, as the Campaign for Labour Party Democracy,  a Corbyn-supporting organisation, run by the controversial Peter Willsman, has pledged it’s support for the current party stance, which does not call for a second referendum.

As Gerry has said before, this shows the working-class Leave voting Labour supporters getting their voices heard, against the largely metropolitan Remain supporters…
