Please help deselect Anna Soubry

(Tuesday/Wednesday blog)

No blog yesterday as I was suffering 12 hours in what British Airways laughably call their “Premium Economy Service” – just 3 rows of seats separated from Economy by a bit of torn curtain with no separate galley or toilets for those suckers like me who had been conned into paying a bunch of money in the deluded belief we would get something a bit more comfortable than BA’s pathetic Economy class

Below is a link to a petition demanding that Europhiliac Tory MP, Anna Soubry be deselected.

Here is why Anna Soubry should be deselected. Once you’ve read it, please click on the link and add your vote to the petition.

Since the  outcome of the EU referendum, Anna Soubry MP has ignored her constituency who voted  to Leave the EU.  She has campaigned against Brexit and now, acknowledging the result, she is actively trying to thwart the outcome of the Brexit negotiations.

Together with Dominic Grieve, Ken Clarke, Antoinette Sandbach, Nicky Morgan, Stephen Hammond, Heidi Allen, Sarah Wollaston, Bob Neil, Jonathan Djanogly and Sir Oliver Heald, she has voted  for a change  in the law which will give them a veto on the final deal negotiated by the Prime Minister.  This could destabilize the  government and put Jeremy Corbyn into No. 10.  Ms Soubry and these other rebels are betraying their leader and the 17.4 Million people who have voted for Brexit.

Ms. Soubry attacks the government at any opportunity she has and continues to rally against what the electorate voted for.  If this is the game she wants to play, she should realise that there are many angry voters who actually employ her as their representative in Parliament.  It is the people that are sovereign, and the voted MP’s are actually sitting in Parliament. Ms Soubry and the above are elected representatives, and  they are going against what was voted for.

We feel  that Anna Soubry is abusing such a position, and this is clear in her anger and resentment towards leaving the European Union. Her attempt, with her colleagues to keep us as close to EU laws is not what we have voted for. We have voted to take control of our own laws and borders and to trade with the EU, not stay tied to them.

Anna Soubry has her own reasons, but that is what they are, not the views of the electorate who, in the largest  turnout in many years have voted to leave the EU and for this reason we are calling for her deselection, along with those other MPs who are going against the government rather than working with them.

When the EU referendum was first announced by then Prime Minister, David Cameron, we were told that no one, no MP, or the government could change the result of the vote.  We object to Anna Soubry and her colleagues for trying to prevent Brexit or keeping us as close to the EU as they can.

Here’s the link to the petition:

  • Julia Green

    She is the ultimate example of pomposity, arrogance and ignorance in a politician. She’s obviously been brainwashed by the Soros-Kalergi bullsh*t machine.

  • Roy Hartwell

    ‘ I believe the EU has become a huge, overly costly, bureaucratic organisation fundamentally lacking in both democracy and accountability to the many millions of people who pay for it through their taxes and are bound to live by it’s rules ‘. Anna Soubry, 2011. So what’s changed her mind ? (rhetorical question)

  • david brown

    Soros is funding all opposition to leaving the EU.
    As for Soubry back in 2014 she was openly sneering at her voters concerns about immigration.

  • Philip

    Petition signed.

    Positive news from Italy with an overwhelming ant-EU vote.

    Now we’ll see how many of these politicos will ‘walk the walk’ or will the Italian versionx of Anna Soubry start appearing.

    The pamphlet we all received says “This is your decision. The Government will implement what you decide.” Now we are finding out that many MPs don’t give a damn about what we think. Even worse than Soubry are John Major and Tony Blair. They just do not want us to think for ourselves.

    Petition signed and passed on to like-minded friends and family. Soubry is deplorable, although perhaps marginally less obnoxious than the unspeakable Tony Bliar. In my view it’s less a case of politicians not wanting us to think for ourselves as of them being genuinely so arrogant and opinionated as to believe the electorate incapable of making a rational decision. Just listen to them being interviewed on R4 – how almost invariably they refer to us, the electorate who put them in Parliament, who are citizens with the same rights as themselves, as “they”. “They” think, “they” want, “they” need to know, as if we are totally disconnected from them. Do they realise how arrogant they sound? Do they stop to think that many of us are as well, or even better, educated as are they? We are routinely either patronised or disregarded, as if they occupy a realm far elevated above that of we ordinary mortals.

  • Roy Hartwell

    Stillreading, well said but it’s not just a case of being as well or better educated than the politicians. Most politicians these days have been steeped in politics almost since they were born. They have not lived a life outside the closed world of politics (and dare I add metropolitan London !) so have no concept of real world issues and needs. Until real people feel once more able to enter politics this is never going to change.
