Steerpike 2 March 2019 7:00 AM 2 March 2019 7:00 AM Share Twitter Facebook LinkedIn Email Whatsapp Are Tory MPs actually proud to be Tories? Following recent defections from the party and the ever-present backdrop of Brexit in-fighting, it’s a question being heard more and more around Westminster. There are mutterings of parties within parties and the Independent Group has said it expects another wave of defections, highlighting just how low Conservative morale has become. In a bid to track how Conservatives feel about their own party at the moment, Mr S has been through the Twitter accounts of every Tory MP to see who is still showing their Conservative credentials online and who is shrouding their social media allegiance in ambiguity. Interestingly, out of the 314 Conservative MPs on Twitter, only143 have any mention of their party at all. MPs who mention the Conservative Party in their biography or photo: Lucy Allan Stuart Agnew Kemi … [Read more...] about Which Tory MPs don’t call themselves Conservative online?
One hundred and eighteen Tory MPs defied Theresa May to vote against her Brexit deal and in the process land her with a humiliating defeat. The vote of 432 MPs to 200 made it the government's worst defeat in Commons history. The 118 Tory MPs who defied the whip are thought to be part of the biggest ever rebellion in Tory party history. According to academic Philip Cowley the biggest rebellion of modern politics was in 2003 when 139 Labour MPs revolted against Tony Blair over the Iraq War. The biggest ever Tory rebellion was in 1997 when 95 Conservatives rebelled over post-Dunblane gun control under John Major. The full list includes former Conservative Party vice chair Tom Pursglove who quit his role to vote against May's deal. Also in the list are arch-Brexiteers Iain Duncan Smith, John Redwood, Jacob Rees-Mogg and Boris Johnson along with both ex-Brexit secretaries David Davis and Dominic Raab. The full list is: Adam Afriyie (Windsor) Lucy … [Read more...] about The 118 Tory MPs who voted against Theresa May’s deal in biggest party rebellion

The Spectator 14 January 2019 3:59 PM 14 January 2019 3:59 PM Share Twitter Facebook LinkedIn Email Whatsapp As things stand, it looks inevitable that Theresa May’s Brexit deal will be defeated in the House of Commons on Tuesday, but what happens afterwards is the great unknown. While a number of MPs have voiced their opposition to May’s deal and no deal, the majority still have not made clear what they would support in its place. And unless there is a parliamentary majority for another option, Britain will leave the EU on 29 March without a deal by default. So what is there a majority for in the Commons? In an attempt to find out, Coffee House has compiled the public Brexit position of every single Tory MP. Their views have been split into five different categories: supporting May’s deal, no deal, a second referendum, Norway, or ‘Undeclared’. First, some notes about the categories: We have presumed that those who are currently … [Read more...] about Where every Tory MP stands on Brexit: the full list
