Remoaner MP Nicky Morgan has confirmed that Brexiteers are joining the Tory Party – and want to see the back of pro-Remain Tory MPs such as herself.
Speaking to The House magazine, she confirmed: “It’s undoubtedly true there are people trying to get into the party who would like nothing more than to deselect Conservatives like me.”
She cited Jeremy Corbyn as being a reason for an upsurge in Conservative membership as well, saying: “There are undoubtedly people joining. What we’re finding is that Jeremy Corbyn is the greatest recruiting sergeant. A lot of people are joining more because of fear of a Labour government than for any other reason.”
The vast majority of Conservative Party members voted to leave the European Union. A full Brexit is now the mainstream view of the party and country.
Are the Tories really going to turn down new members who are frustrated with MPs who consistently undermine the Conservative government’s stated policy of exiting the Single Market & Customs Union?
