Three UK Conservatives quit party in protest at 'disastrous Brexit'

Total nonsense.

 

Of course it's relevant that they are remainers (as was I). They are calling for a second referendum, aka a 'People's Vote'.... yet deny their constituents a 'People's Vote' via a by-election. They won't because they will lose. This makes them all massive self-serving hypocrites.

 

Also, surveys have shown that only 6% of voters base their vote on the person rather than the party they represent.

 

I voted remain but I will abstain if there is a second referendum.

"I voted remain but I will abstain if there is a second referendum."

Which would be just as stupid as the protest votes that made the brexiteers get 52% earlier.

I disagree. I will abstain because I'm a democrat and respect the result of the last referendum.  If it's a vote with multiple choices (i.e. May's deal, no-deal, remain) then I will vote remain. But if it's a re-run because the establishment did not like the previous result, then I won't play a part in it.

At long last, a few Tories showing some backbone. Never thought I'd see the day.

Backbone...?

I think the three of them are splendid!

 

An great example to other MPs

 

They are acting precisely as Edmund Burke stated and putting their honest opinions on what is best before cheap popularity.

 

Well done!

Brexiters are a joyless bunch!

 

Are they in chronic pain? Or is it depression do you think?

 

Never a positive word...

Funny how, when conservative mps break with their party, they quit the party. 

 

Yet when labour mps do the same, they split the party...

Maybe 8 leaving constitutes a split whereas 3 just means they are leaving.  I suspect more MPs will "leave" but not necessarily to join this group.  We have been in uncharted waters for a long time now so trying to call what happens next is hard to figure

I suspect it’s always a split for the press when Labour is involved

You need to deal with facts , rather than just stating your suspicions as being facts

If posters on TV dealt only in facts then the threads would all be embarrassingly short and boring.  Opinions are just as important and the lifeblood of debate!
