Brexiteers are signing up to the Conservative Party in anticipation of a future leadership contest for the heart and soul of Brexit.
Leave.EU have been tapping into their huge social media following with tweets such as: “Take back control of the party by electing a true conservative Brexiteer when the time comes! https://www.conservatives.com/join”
The responses show that it is having a clear impact. Prominent Essex businessman Michael Norcross joined following the appeal.
Happy to receive my letter from @Conservatives Party chairman Brandon Lewis today. There’s more than one way to skin a cat. Not that I would skin a cat of course. @LeaveEUOfficial #letsmakethiscountrygreatagain pic.twitter.com/VkSthnVHj7

Looks like Brexiteers will be having their say as to who the next Leader of the Conservative Party will be.
