Quotes:

"The Brexit negotiations cannot be lead by a Conservative Government that allows outright sabotage to go unaddressed within its own ranks. There should absolutely be room for Conservative politicians to disagree with the Government's approach to Brexit, but for a member to be invested in bringing a Corbyn lead government into power in order to ignore the democratic will of the people in voting for Brexit cannot be tolerated by any party or government who wishes to be taken seriously and maintain parliamentary discipline.

Heseltine has made clear it is his aim to prevent Brexit at all costs, including the sabotage of his own Party and nation, the Conservative Party must therefore withdraw the whip and end the inevitable continuation of his sniping from inside the tent.

Michael Heseltine is best known for bringing down the Thatcher Government, his career is a litanty of traiterous and self-serving practices, that he is able to continue to do such things in senility only draws attention to the weakness of the Government and embarasses it at home and abroad"
Cllr Ben Harris-Quinney, Chairman, The Bow Group
