Brexit news: Sacked Tory rebels plot return to Parliament in next general election | UK | News

According to The Sun, the anti-no deal MPs will aim to claim back their seats from any prospective Conservative candidate which the party will put to try and win the seat. Among the list are former big-time players in the Conservatives, which include the likes of ex-Chancellor Philip Hammond, one-time leadership candidate Rory Stewart and Caroline Noakes. The others are David Gauke, Dominic Grieve, Ed Vaizey, Sam Gymiah, Alistair Burt, Steve Brine, Antoinette Sandbach, Margot James and Stephen Hammond.

Fears from within the Conservative party are that the rebels could end up splitting the Tory vote, with locals supporting both candidates.

This could lead to secondary parties such as Labour and the Liberal Democrats making gains.

The details emerged as calls to reinstate the rogue MPs back to the Conservative party grew.

Mr Johnson warned his MPs that if they voted against the Government and helped block a no deal Brexit, they would be axed.

They also faced deselection, Mr Johnson added.

But this did not stop 21 rebels supporting the likes of Labour in trying to stop a no deal.

Currently legislation is being debated that will ensure the UK cannot leave the EU in a no deal scenario.

Mr Johnson had previously vowed to ensure that the UK would leave “with or without a deal” on October 31.

He said that it would “depend on the circumstances of the election” as to whether he would run.

He added: “I’m certainly of the view that pulling out of politics during the biggest crisis in recent history would be the wrong thing to do.

“Having participated fully in this debate, I want to see it resolved.

“I would carefully consider therefore standing as an independent.”
