Last night on Newsnight Nick Watt reported that the the three Tory MPs had gone very very quiet. Knowing one of them was Anna Soubry, I instantly realised that this must be fake news.
And they've only gone and done it!

Wow Anna Soubry letting the man with the funny tinge do the talking!
I wonder how long it'll be until they realise that they all want different things, can't agree and can't stand each other.
The IG - are they initials or the the first two letters of an adjective to describe them?


In 2019, a crack pot unit was sent to Coventry for a referendum result they didn't like. These men promptly escaped from a maximum-insecurity party to the Westminster underground. Today, still wanted by the government, they survive as soldiers of fortune. If you have a problem... if no one else can help... if you keep banging your head against the padded cell wall... and if you can find them... maybe you can hire... The IG-Team.

they are now by MP and public voting intention, bigger than the lib dems, which has seemingly taken them all of about 6 seconds.

Thing I like about Anna Soubry is she always seems to be pissed. its just the way she talks, its like she's already seen off a couples of bottles of red for breakfast.

I wish I could remember where and when, and provide a link (it was probably on 'The Last Leg'), but several months ago, I saw Anna Soubry say that "we're saving Chuka for better things." There's a lot of mutual admiration between those two.

Personally, whilst I do like those two, I don't agree with them on everything. However, I have a hell of a lot of respect for Luciana Berger and Sarah Wollaston.

After 3yrs of mayhem, I feel like the adults are back in the room.

She's eccentric and cheeky, and she really annoys a lot of stuffed shirts. I like that.

Eh? She's no egomaniacal fool. Trump isn't eccentric and cheeky, he's dangerous.

Re: The Brexit referendum thread: potential consequences for GB, EU and the Brits in

It's finally happening. I'm surprised it took this long to be honest. Corbyn to split Labour, Brexit to split the Tories. Now all we need is another General Election for the bloodbath to really commence.

I can's see her jumping ship, but still...

"I was born Labour and I felt like I'd die Labour but when I listen to my colleagues [Berger, Umunna etc] speaking I find it very hard to disagree with a lot of what they were saying."

And Loz is squarely in camp 3. It's basically trolling but with lifelong, serious consequences.

Prospect of UK passport holders having to pay €60 for a Schengen visa bubbling up again - Brexit related but mainly coming out of the Gibraltar status dispute...
