STOP THE ROT, SACK THE LOT

Yesterday 10 ministers voted against Government policy and their manifesto

Ministers voting against govt policy

They should all be fired today

Some of the Brexit Facts4EU.Org team have significant experience being on the Boards of companies. If any director had said they would like the competition to win the largest contract in the company’s history, they would have been fired.

Why isn’t Mrs May firing the following 10 ministers?

  • Robert Buckland, Solicitor General
  • Alan Duncan, FCO minister
  • Tobias Ellwood, Defence Minister
  • Mark Field, FCO minister
  • Mike Freer, Lord Commissioner to the Treasury
  • Stephen Hammond, Health Minister
  • Margot James, Culture Minister
  • Anne Milton, Education Minister
  • Guy Opperman, Work and Pensions Minister
  • Rory Stewart, Justice Minister

Who voted for what?

Below we list what these Government ministers voted for - against Government policy, against the party manifesto on which they stood, and against the wishes of the majority of the members of their party.

Voted for a Customs Union:

  • Robert Buckland, Solicitor General
  • Alan Duncan, FCO minister
  • Tobias Ellwood, Defence Minister
  • Mark Field, FCO minister
  • Stephen Hammond, Health Minister
  • Margot James, Culture Minister

The Chancellor, Philip Hammond, did not vote against one single one of these Remain motions, despite them all being against Government policy.

Observations

Free votes for ministers simply should not be allowed

It really doesn’t matter if Theresa May gave a free vote or not. The principle of Cabinet responsibility is an age-old tradition, otherwise government can’t function. In breaking this rule the PM is inviting chaos, and that is what she has achieved.

Let’s be frank, this Prime Minister has presided over the worst breakdown in the United Kingdom’s constitutional norms and traditions in living memory. Her gross incompetence and her preference for the malicious influence of unelected civil servants has resulted in a humiliation for the entire country.

The world is looking on aghast at what the ‘Mother of all Parliaments’ has become.

Tory MPs must move against her immediately. She is a total disaster for the country, to say nothing of the Conservative Party.
