Steve Baker has claimed that around 80 of his Tory colleagues could potentially oppose Theresa May’s feeble Chequers Deal in the House of Commons.
Baker, spoke to Sky News just this morning and went on record to say:
“Almost 80 colleagues, something I’ve put on the record, who are willing to vote in the House of Commons to protest against Chequers.
“And that’s why I’ve said on the record that there are those numbers.
“People shouldn’t be under any illusions that the Conservative Party does face a catastrophic split if this plan is pushed through and in particular if its pushed through with Labour votes.
“About the only thing the Conservative Party has come together on around Chequers is that its unacceptable, unviable and won’t go through.”
Baker also spoke to the BBC, and said: “I look at the mood of colleagues and the mood of the Conservative Party in the country and I am gravely concerned for the future of our party.”
There is obviously a growing sentient of disapproval for the leadership of the Conservative Party and a sense of betrayal among many Pro-Brexit Tory MPs for the despised Chequers Deal. The British government should exercise the will of the people and deliver on the mandate they have for Brexit referendum result.
The Conservative Party need a new vibrant leader that not only respects the result of the referendum but actively wants to deliver it and the United Kingdom deserves a real: “Strong and stable leadership”
