Tory plotters need to understand the concept of winning and losing and not hand victory to those defeated in the Brexit referendum

Tory plotters need to understand the concept of winning and losing and not hand victory to those defeated in the Brexit referendum

Not only do they want to hand victory to those defeated in the referendum — they want to do so via a minority of MPs hijacking Brexit, dictating terms to the Government and forcing a vote to ­suspend our Article 50 notice.

It is an insane attempt to upend the ancient political principle that a Government with a majority governs. It is a bid for power without a mandate.

Shifty Dominic Grieve fancies himself as a Remain superhero, outwitting the Government to rob 17.4million voters.

He doesn’t give a damn about the little people, of course, being a grand QC and former Attorney General.

But Grieve is doing catastrophic harm to his party, to Parliament and our democracy. History won’t be kind to him.

The Government he is destabilising is the only prayer Leavers have.

Their betrayal by Labour is close, and inevitable.

Labour’s Brexit chief Keir Starmer now admits that he aims to secure a second referendum — then campaign, and vote, for Remain.

If that’s not Corbyn’s policy, why isn’t Starmer fired?

All the chaos brings Theresa May ever closer to an election.

One in which every Tory Remainer plotting to kill Brexit must be deselected and replaced.

With candidates who stay loyal to voters and make promises they intend to keep.

Night Mayor

SADIQ Khan’s “poll tax” on drivers looks like the biggest disaster of his inglorious tenure as London Mayor.

We know he is a lightweight who prefers virtue-signalling to fixing the city’s problems. But this insane pollution charge could prove fatal to his prospects.

Not only is his scheme, to hammer drivers in his Ultra Low Emissions Zone, vastly expensive to set up, it will barely improve air quality. All those who cannot replace their old car with a “cleaner” new model will be clobbered.

Which of course hits the lowest-paid hardest. And, naturally, other left-wing councils nationwide are following suit.

How very “progressive” it all is.

Heroes' snub

NO ONE expects a flag-waving jamboree on the 50th anniversary of troops being deployed to Northern Ireland. But why would the MoD not mark it at all?

It is a snub of a piece with the hounding of veterans over their actions decades ago.

It stems from a corrosive political correctness in modern politicians’ attitudes towards our role in the Troubles, where 1,441 troops died quelling the IRA’s campaign of slaughter.

Labour may be led by pensioner revolutionaries who supported the terrorists.

That’s no reason for the Tories to forget who the good guys were — and their bravery in securing the peace.
