The veteran MP, one of 21 Tory rebels expelled by the party, delivered an emotional speech to parliament: ‘I’m truly very sad that it should end in this way and it is my most fervent hope that this house will rediscover the spirit of compromise, humility and understanding that will enable us finally to push ahead with the vital work in the interests of the whole country that has inevitably had to be so sadly neglected whilst we have devoted so much time to wrestling with Brexit’

"My right honourable friend the Prime Minister, the leader of the House and other members of the cabinet whose serial disloyalty has been such an inspiration to so many of us..." Brilliant put down of Johnson and Rees-Mogg, absolutely hilarious!

“Power will go to the hands of rascals, rogues, freebooters; all leaders will be of low calibre & men of straw. They will have sweet tongues and silly hearts. They will fight amongst themselves for power and will be lost in political squabbles. Sir Winston Churchill

Sounds just like his grandfather once did...eloquent, but also clear-sighted & he's also able to genuinely move an audience - not simply to pontificate and/or sermonize.

Britain still has brave men! So different from this Brexit clique serving its American landlord... On the other hand, with Greenland not being for sale anymore, maybe Britain could be a nice option for Donnie Boy.

What happened to the Tory party ? Same thing as has happened to the Republican party ? Corruption with russian money.

That the Tory Party should expel Nick Soames tells us everything. Great speech - dignity, intelligence and one-nation Toryism.

"Modest in its ambitions but powerful in its mandate" - He could have been speaking of his excellent and honourable career as much as speech.

A thoroughly decent Tory with years of service to his party deselected by a fly by night snake oil huckster of a PM. Sad days indeed...

All political careers end in failure. (I can't remember who said that, first)
