Brexit News: Anna Soubry reveals why history will condemn Boris Johnson and Brexiteers | UK | News

Anna Soubry met with other opposition MPs on Tuesday to agree on a strategy to stop Boris Johnson from taking the UK out of the EU without a deal. Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn called the meeting, as Remainers rush to stop a no deal exit before the looming October 31 deadline. In remarks following the meeting, Ms Soubry pledged to block Boris Johnson and his “unelected ideologically-driven advisors” from carrying out a no deal exit.

She continued: “It is something that Leave voters never voted for.

“Boris Johnson and his unelected ideologically driven advisors will stop at nothing.

“We all know the consequences of a no deal exit – at least an eight percent drop in growth and prosperity of our country

“When the history books are written, it will record our determination for our sovereign parliament to meet and debate our country’s biggest crisis since the Second World War.

Ms Soubry had reportedly pressed the idea that Tory MPs who want to stop a no deal exit would only vote to topple a Tory Prime Minister in “extreme circumstances”.

The no-confidence vote has been described as a “nuclear option” if Remainers fail to stop a no deal exit before the Brexit deadline.

A Downing Street source accused them of “seeking to sabotage the UK’s position” in talks with the European Union.

In response to the meeting, the Prime Minister tweeted: “The referendum result must be respected. We will leave the EU on 31st October.”
