The clearly principled Conservative MP Andrea Jenkyns has resigned from her PPS role in the government so that she can “fight for Brexit”.
Stepping down as a Parliament Private Secretary, Jenkyns points out how in Parliament “there are 21 members on the Brexit committee, only 7 of which voted to leave the EU” and she wants to focus more on fighting for the pro-Leave majority of Brits.

“As we get closer to us leaving the EU, my committee business will be more important than ever and I believe it best I do all I can to fight to secure the right direction for our country’s future.”
And she says: “I made a promise to my constituents during this Parliament to fight for Brexit and this is a promise that I intend to keep to the best of my abilities. And it is important that I have both the time and freedom to speak out on the backbenchers to be able to do so.”
Now there’s some proper principle and pro-Brexit steel. Much more needed from others.
