In a new turn of events, yet another prominent member of the Conservative Party has spoken out against Theresa May’s current Brexit deal and is pledging not to vote for it when it is put to Parliament.
Theresa Villiers, the current Conservative MP for Chipping Barnet and former London MEP, has confirmed on her Facebook account that she shall be voting against the current Brexit deal. This is her full statement:
Having reflected carefully on the draft Withdrawal Agreement, I cannot support it and I will vote against it if it is…
Throughout her career, Villiers has been a prominent Eurosceptic. This started back in the late 1990s, whereby at a Conservative Party conference, she stated that those wanting closer integration with Europe were ‘yesterday’s men talking yesterday’s politics’.
This continued during her career, most notably through campaigning against the Euro while an MEP and becoming one of the six Cabinet ministers back in 2016 to back a Leave vote during that year’s EU referendum. At the time, she was the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland, a position she later resigned after telling the newly incumbent Prime Minister Theresa May that the role was not one she felt she ‘could take on’. She was succeeded by James Brokenshire.
This is clearly a continuation of such Brexiteer spirit.
To Theresa, on behalf of myself and the Red Pill Factory team I would like to thank you and the other MPs standing up to May’s rotten Brexit deal, and standing by your Brexiteer principles.
The more of you who do so, the better, and this deal can then be killed for good.
