Hammond voted 3 times for May's deal, for Johnson's at 2nd reading. Baker voted against May's deal 3 times. And Hammond is supposed to get deselected?Some Eurosceptics suggested their votes against the bill would kill off any hopes still harboured by the independents of being readmitted to the party. Steve Baker, the leader of the European Research Group, referred to Hammond’s seat in Surrey, saying: “It feels like there will be a candidate selection in Runnymede shortly.”
He's to blame for the three-quid Trots and Corbyn.
It all comes down to Farage.satnav wrote: ↑Tue Oct 22, 2019 10:06 pmJohnson is currently doing well in the polls due to him repeating the mantra that Brexit will happen on 31st October but now his plans have it the buffers he has lost his unique selling point. If we have a general election in the next 6 weeks Johnson and the Conservatives will be left trying to sell a Withdrawal Bill that many Tory MPs don't really agree with. On one side of the Tories will be Labour and the Lib Dems offering a second referendum and on the other side will be Farage and the Brexit Party pushing the 'no deal' or 'clean break solution.' In such a scenario it is hard to see where the Tories are going to pick up lots of extra seats.
That didn't work well for May as voters were sophisticated with tactical voting. Remainers will still pile in behind Labour where it is the only serious challenger and Labour voters have shown in the Councils and Euros that they will tactically switch.
Six words that sum up the awfulness of the political landscape right now. Thankfully, one good thing about the Tories pulling ahead in the polls recently is that they probably no longer see any need to strike a grubby GE deal with Farage.
