Exit of the Moderate Tory MPs

November 21, 2019 3:17 PM

The exit of so many moderate
Tory MPs at the end of this
parliament is clear proof of
the rightward lurch of the
Conservative Party.
Some moderates like Ken
Clarke are retiring, others
including Amber Rudd have
been thrown out, joining
Anna Soubry and others who
have already left the Party.
Most are household names
like Justine Greening, Philip
Hammond and Oliver
Letwin. Local MPs Nicky
Morgan and Sir Patrick
McCloughlin are quitting as
well.
Holding Ministerial
positions, they have all given
years of service to this
country representing "One
Nation" Conservatism.
Despite often challenging
political differences, they
could still hold the respect of
MPs from all political
parties. Moderate MPs are
no longer welcome in today's
Conservative Party, leaving
Boris Johnson and his
bullying Brexit Boys to
pursue his hard right Brexit
deal while promising to
"Unite the Nation".
