Interesting. The Conservative party would do well to rid itself of the woeful MPs who speak of leaving if Jacob Rees Mogg ever becomes party leader – the three MPs quoted in the article are women. The piece ends with a prime example of the type:
Former education secretary Nicky Morgan said a new political party would be “a very bad idea”. Writing for ConservativeHome, she added that likeminded Tories should stay put and push for a more centrist [J4MB: In plain English, even less conservative] policy programme.
“If liberal Conservative MPs [J4MB emphasis] allow ourselves to be drummed out of the Conservative Party, whether by heeding the calls for a new Party or by accepting that our views no longer have a place within our Party, then that would send a terrible signal, not only to the electorate but also to the tens of thousands of Tory members, councillors, donors and supporters who share our views and want us to lead the charge in putting forward a mainstream agenda which appeals to the centre-ground of British politics and, in particular, to younger and future voters.”
What is a liberal Conservative MP? Is it similar to a conservative Socialist MP? The current band of female Conservative MPs are all feminists, whether they publicly self-identify as such, or not.
