Andrew Neil mocked Tory remainer, Anna Soubry and former Labour MP Alan Johnson on BBC political show ‘This Week’
Mrs Soubry has come under major criticism for labelling ‘hard Brexiteers’ as not true Conservatives and threatened to leave the party if it continued to be run by such people.
Mr Neil said: “Speaking of those who have failed to shine in the public or private sector, I’m joined on the sofa tonight by two politicians who couldn’t even get citizenship in Jacob Rees-Mogg’s vassal state.”
“I speak of course of Alan #sadmanontheleftjohnson and Anna #propertory Soubry”
Mrs May was urged by Ms Soubry to “sling out” Eurosceptics.
Clearly, she doesn’t understand the mood of the country.
52% of the electorate voted to leave! Yet this Tory remainer wants to ‘sling out’ anyone who stands up for their constituents views.
She said: “I’m really cheesed off about the way the whole Brexit thing is going.
“It feels like Theresa is in hock to these 35 hard Brexiteers. They don’t represent my party, they don’t represent people who voted Leave.”
Andrew Neil BLASTS Labour MP Chuka Umunna over his plans for a SOFT BREXIT
We have said time and time again that Andrew Neil is one of only a handful of people within the BBC who can be trusted to take politicians to task over plans to soften Brexit – to be fair we are being generous by using the word ‘handful’ – and his most recent mission was to put the Labour MP and well-known Remoaner Chuka Umunna well and truly in his place for his bleating about somehow remaining in the Single Market.
Umunna’s constant attempts to thwart the Brexit vote expose the utter shambles that calls itself the Labour Party, and his exchange with Neil shows everyone exactly why Jezza’s merry men MUST NOT be entrusted with delivering Brexit at all costs!
Take a look at this …
A report in The Express said:
Appearing on BBC This Week, the Labour MP said: “I am very clear. I think we should be arguing for us to stay in the single market permanently.”
But Neil hit back and said staying in the single market permanently after Brexit would be “effectively staying in the EU”.
Mr Umunna said: “I mean, at the moment, what is going on is that the leadership is waiting to see whether public opinion moves in a particular direction. They are looking at polling and focus groups.
“Whereas I am saying, I would argue, in the end, you’ve got to lead and make the argument for your values.
“And when Labour stops making the argument for its values, support for things like poverty reduction, inequality reduction falls. So, it stands to reason if we make the argument, personally, I wish Brexit wasn’t happening…”
Neil slammed the claim and said: “Well, it won’t happen if we stay in the single market.
Many Labour politicians currently seem to be hell bent upon ‘Brexit without Brexit,’ and to be fair if Corbyn ever came into power we wouldn’t be surprised to see the whole project abandoned altogether.
People moan about the Conservatives and their current dilly-dallying in Brussels (ourselves included), but the alternative doesn’t even bear thinking about!
