Soames Attacks Boris and Rees-Mogg

TORY turncoat Nicholas Soames has today had yet another dig at Boris Johnson, TBG can reveal.

Grandson of Churchill, Soames is standing down as MP for Mid Sussex having held the seat since 1997 and prior to that Crawley from 1983 to 1997.

Yet that hasn’t stopped him from attacking Johnson again today.

Soames is quoted in Saturday’s Times as saying that the Conservatives are beginning to look like a “Brexit sect.”

Soames called Jacob Rees-Mogg “repulsive” and "an absolute fraud."

Yet Soames described Jo Swinson as a "very formidable young lady".

His interview also reveals why fellow turncoat Anne Milton rebelled this week.

Apparently she is running scared of the Lib Dem’s in Guildford.

Milton, who gained her Guildford seat from Lib Dem Sue Doughty In 2005 and served as Minister of State for Skills and Apprenticeships from 2017 to 2019 is said to have told Boris Johnson that if he presses ahead with his hard Brexit strategy then “Guildford will be gone” for the Tory party to the Lib Dem’s despite it having an existing majority of 17,040.

TBG understands that the Lib Dem’s have their eyes on a pair of other seats too now.

Namely Newbury where Richard Benyon has lost the whip and had a majority of 24,380 in 2017 and Devizes in Wiltshire after Claire Perry announced she is off too.

Cameron babe Perry took over from Brexiteer Michael Ancram In 2010 and had a 2017 majority of 21,136.

TBG thinks the Lib Dem’s are being very ambitious.

If a Brexiteer Conservative from Leave Means Leave can win and hold the former Lib Dem stronghold of Yeovil then they can beat the Lib Dem’s anywhere!
