Conservative MPs have been warned not to rebel against the government over BREXIT, as opposition MPs plan legislation to stop no deal.
A senior source from the whips office – which ensures MPs vote in line with the party – said MPs who voted to block no-deal would “destroy” the government’s BREXIT negotiating position.
MPs will this week seek to bring forward legislation against no deal in parliament, with specific details expected to be outlined on Tuesday.
But in a warning to Tory MPs thinking of supporting such efforts, a senior conservative whips office source said any MP who failed to vote with the government would effectively be expelled from the party.
But former Tory MP Nick Boles said the move meant the “hard right has taken over”.
Elsewhere, Former Justice Secretary David Gauke has written to the attorney general to demand the government commits to abiding by the rule of law.
Prime Minister Boris Johnson has said the UK must leave the EU on 31 October, with or without a deal, prompting a number of MPs to unite to try to prevent the UK leaving without an agreement.
