The mere notification that Jeremy Corbyn might call a new vote of no confidence has flushed out the real nature and motives of the quitters’ supposedly ‘independent’ group.
Earlier today, the SKWAWKBOX wrote to members the ‘Independent Group’ of MPs who have defected from their parties to form a new club – not a political party with the accountability and funding checks that come with it.
The email flagged to the MPs that Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn might call another vote of no confidence in the government – and asked them to state whether they would vote for or against Theresa May’s ongoing calamity.
It seems word got around, as quitter founder member Chris Leslie subsequently told mainstream media that trying to bring down the government and force a general election is “silly games” – while Heidi Allen confessed a general election would “crush” the quitter venture.
In other words, “we know we’d be wiped out if we gave voters a say, so we’ll prop up a Tory government that is killing people to cling onto our seats”.
