Anna Soubry Doesn’t Rule Out Backing PM’s Brexit Deal To Stop No Deal
21 February 2019, 14:59
Anna Soubry did not rule out backing Theresa May’s Brexit deal in order to prevent a no-deal exit after being repeatedly pressed by LBC’s Theo Usherwood.
The newly independent MP said it would be a “huge dilemma” before adding: “I don’t know what I’d do”.
Ms Soubry, who was presenting her debut LBC show, quit the Conservative Party on Wednesday.
The MP for Broxtowe is now campaigning for a so-called People’s Vote and told LBC she would back the Prime Minister if she promised a second referendum.
But, if that was not put on the table, Theo pressed Ms Soubry over whether she’d vote through the deal as a last resort in order to stop no deal.
“A huge dilemma,” she replied.
Theo asked: “So you would support [Theresa May’s deal]?”
Ms Soubry responded: “I don’t know what I’d do.
“I just can’t see myself voting for something that I don’t agree with.”
