BREXIT-backing Tory MP and close Boris Johnson ally Andrew Bridgen has told David Icke.com to expect a General Election next month after what is certain to be a rollercoaster week in the House of Commons.
Bridgen, who voted consistently against former Prime Minister Theresa May’s controversial withdrawal agreement, says he is ‘confident’ the new PM wishes to deliver the United Kingdom’s exit from the European Union on October 31 but that he faces an ‘onslaught from the desperate Remain alliance’.
“The liberal elite in this county has never lost a major political battle before,” he said. “The referendum result was a setback for them but now, with the help of the media, the onslaught is relentless. They will stop at nothing to try to block the will of the people.”
Bridgen, who represents North West Leicestershire, outlined the options the Government has should politicians opposing a no deal Brexit take control of Parliament, as expected, this week.
“We will withdraw the whip from any Conservative MP who votes with the Remain alliance – and even one would eliminate our majority,” he said.
“If they then got a Bill through the House of Commons to prevent a no deal Brexit, the Government does have the option to ensure it doesn’t become law.
“No Bill becomes law without it being given Royal assent and we could choose not to put forward legislation the Government doesn’t agree with.
“However, it is more likely Boris will call a General Election.
“I would like to see that take place on November 1, the day after the Brexit deadline.
“But I accept this may not be possible and it is more likely to take place a week or so before October 31.”
This tallies with growing speculation that Monday, October 14 is the Government’s preferred date.
Bridgen argues that there would be more than Brexit at stake at the polls and why Remainers within Parliament may have reservations about an election.
“The future of democracy is on the line,” he claimed. “We can’t say there is democracy in this country if we block Brexit. It would probably result in people never believing again what politicians say and lower turnouts at future polls.
“But a General Election now would probably be good for leavers.
“I realised a long time ago that we would never get Brexit through this Parliament.
“Only 160 current MPs campaigned for Leave, but a General Election would change that.
“We would deselect Remainers and Labour has a big job to do to appease its five million voters who wanted to Leave.”
