BRITAIN: 21 Tory MPs Sacked For Defying Boris Johnson

Sky News reports:

Former chancellors, Winston Churchill’s grandson and the current longest-serving MP have all been sacked from the Conservative Party for rebelling against the government in a bid to avoid a no-deal Brexit.

The 21 Conservative MPs – many of them decades-long Tory loyalists – helped inflict defeat on Boris Johnson in his first major vote since becoming prime minister, winning a vote to override a Commons rule that says only the government can propose new laws.

The group, along with opposition parties, will use their chance on Wednesday to try to get Mr Johnson to ask Brussels to delay the Brexit deadline from 31 October to 31 January 2020 – a date the EU would ultimately be in charge of.

Being sacked from the party doesn’t mean removal from Parliament but the former Tories will not be able to run as Conservatives in the next election. The video at the bottom of this post is live.
