Response sent by three senior Tories and recent ex-Tory MP Boles
Three senior Tory MPs and former Tory Nick Boles have replied to a letter from Jeremy Corbyn inviting them to support his attempt to prevent Boris Johnson dragging the country over a no-deal cliff – and have agreed to meet to discuss:
Update: Tory Guto Bebb has also commented publicly:
I do think that those who have said that they will do anything necessary to stop the long-term damage of a no-deal exit must take seriously this type of offer.
Former Labour/TIG/CUK-now-LibDem MP Chuka Umunna was embarrassed on national television last night when his claim on the BBC’s Newsnight programme that no Tories would support Corbyn was disproven within seconds. No video has yet emerged of his face when he heard about the above response, but it might safely be assumed to look something like this.
Corbyn’s chess move in sending the letter has exposed the gross hypocrisy of most centrists, including dire LibDem Jo Swinson – but it has also drawn out Tory MPs whose principles on stopping a no-deal Brexit might be genuine.
Former Tory Nick Boles has already stated that he will support Corbyn’s plan.
