The Sense of Soubry

Section:

Anna Soubry MP shows herself to be principled and sensible whilst Nigel Farage yet again illustrates himself to care about nothing but power

 

Whilst Nigel Farage reneged on yet another pledge to step back from frontline politics this morning and claimed he’ll likely stand in South Thanet in 2017 according to the Mail on Sunday, Tory MP Anna Soubry’s interview with The Guardian on Friday presented an altogether more principled and sensible politician.

 

Speaking to Decca Aitkenhead in a feature titled: “What’s happened to our country? We’ve lost the plot?”, Soubry rightly observed how Britain has become a place where “everyone’s getting so worked up”. She highlighted how Twitter trolls have proposed she “be hanged” and praised Gary Lineker as “the sensible face of our country” for his remarks about immigrants; she apologised for the stupidity of her party supporting the Referendum Act “without understanding the consequences of a leave vote” and went as far as to say: “We told people it was binding, but now we don’t know, and it’s quite concerning that none of these things were explored before parliament decided. It’s all of our faults. All of us. Every single one of us”.

 

Though Soubry claimed she will honour her statement that when she “told people that if we voted leave, we would”, she also observed: “We’re now in a terrible constitutional crisis. We are on the verge of a constitutional crisis the likes of which we have not seen”. This single mother and former junior minister – sacked by Theresa May – is entirely right. We need more people like her.

  1. I fear that Ms S is another member of the elite (journalist, barrister) who hasn’t worked out that things have changed and that the genie cannot be put back in the bottle. The tragedy is that Labour who should be leading the way are effectively leaderless, Theresa has got Gordon Brown’s disease (can’t delegate). No one can remember the name of the leader of the Lib Dems. No wonder Farage is returning. Ain’t no one else.

    • Precisely….and Soubry has a record of mucking everything she touches up. It might help if she moderated her alcohol intake. Sad of thing
