Ex-Tory MP says he will back Corbyn’s no-confidence and temporary government plan
MP Nick Boles, who quit the Tory party in April, has become the first ‘centrist’ MP to say he will support the plan outlined in Jeremy Corbyn’s letter to MPs last night.
Corbyn has asked MPs to support a no-confidence vote in Boris Johnson’s government to prevent Johnson’s no-deal Brexit – and in return has offered to seek an extension from the EU to allow for a general election campaign.
Tory Dominic Grieve has said he is ‘carefully’ considering Corbyn’s plan.
Boles’ move suggests his principles on the Brexit issue are genuine. It shames those centrists who have exposed their hypocrisy and ego by rushing to media to say they won’t support the plan. In doing so, they are aiding and abetting Johnson in dragging the UK over the no-deal cliff.
