In resigning from the Conservative Party Anna Soubry MP has proven herself to be a true patriot
Anna Soubry MP is first and foremost a thoroughly decent lady. I met her at a dinner in Knightsbridge and she spoke a whole lot of sense.
Today, however, Soubry spoke for the moderate majority in our nation in resigning from the Conservative Party. She has cut her ties with a lurching to the right movement that “embraces the turd that is Brexit” (as Conservative MP Dr Philip Lee put it on the BBC’s Politics Live) and in Winston Churchill-like fashion put her nation before her party.
Soubry is a lady worthy of celebration and others should follow her lead. This heroine of the hour is a rare thing: A brilliant politician and a true patriot.
