Pro-Brexit Conservative MP Henry Smith has turned down the opportunity to watch tomorrow’s England-Croatia game at 10 Downing Street because “the Prime Minister isn’t bringing Brexit home”.
Smith tweeted an invite that shows the Chief Whip inviting him to a screening of the World Cup semi-final.
But he has bluntly turned down the opportunity, as Theresa May’s EU capitulation has made him “concerned attending would be a bad omen for football coming home…I’ll pass.”
Received this invite to watch tomorrow’s England-Croatia World Cup semi-final in 10 Downing Street. Seeing as the Prime Minister isn’t bringing Brexit home I’m concerned attending would be a bad omen for football coming home…I’ll pass. pic.twitter.com/1BjH6uczZG
