Hammond Faces Deselection Battle

TBG can Tonight sensationally reveal that former Chancellor Philip Hammond is facing a possible deselection in his own parliamentary seat.

The unrest is said to have begun when Hammond launched his own attack on new Prime Minister Boris Johnson this week.

Members of Runnymede Conservatives are concerned over his attempts to block a no-deal Brexit, with insiders indicating he could soon face a confidence vote.

Pro-Brexit members are becoming increasingly “vocal” in their opposition to his stance as regards Brexit and recent interventions, according to multiple sources.

Insiders in the former chancellor's local Conservative association have told TBG that anger at Mr Hammond has grown in recent weeks, including among figures on the executive committee.
