Tory rebels plot to bring down Theresa May and install new PM who will call a second EU referendum

REBEL pro-EU Tories are plotting to bring down Theresa May and install a cross-party government as a last resort to cancel Brexit, it emerged today.

Ringleader Dominic Grieve has admitted he could back a new government, consisting of both Tory and Labour MPs, which would exist for the sole purpose of calling a second referendum.

And he claimed as many as 100 Conservative MPs are prepared to support the move, which would see Mrs May kicked out of power and replaced by a stand-in PM.

Furious Brexiteers accused the ex-minister of “rank disloyalty” over the apparent threat.

Mr Grieve said a second referendum is needed because the Prime Minister won’t be able to force her Chequers deal through the Commons.

He told the New Statesman his preferred option would be for the current Government to accept a rerun of the referendum.

But he added that if Mrs May continues to rule out a fresh Brexit vote, she could be toppled and replaced with a new government drawing ministers from multiple parties.

That administration would force through a second referendum but then disband itself after a few months, once it has succeeded in scrapping Brexit, he claimed.

Mr Grieve said: “It would be fairly radical. Ultimately, any government is one which enjoys the majority of support of members of Parliament to carry out a policy.

“So, it would have to be on a cross-party basis.”

He added: “There is a very curious level of majority consensus in my view that the Brexit process is...

Politicians are wrong about what the public want

So the, out of touch political elite are trying to say that the public would be happy to cough up an extra £2000 a year, per household to prop up the NHS? 
Advertisers website Wrong! While many British families struggle to make ends meet, the political elite thinks that people will be glad to fund a failing business that is being run into the ground because of their failed policies on how the NHS is managed?

No. This just shows that we have monkeys running our country! Many people on Facebook have shared the above post on various pages; a large number of those people don't even do politics. If our political elite were more than just yes men weighed down by the chains of political correctness, they would see that the people of Britain have had enough. 
Ever increasing taxation to try and fix their mistakes?

Has the Supreme Court handed Boris Johnson a Brexit escape route?

The Supreme Court’s judgment is the latest constitutional perversion after the Benn act. But ironically it may assist the Government in achieving its objective of Britain leaving the EU by 31 October, without having to seek an extension to the Article 50 process.
In paragraph 34, the Supreme Court states that its ‘proper function’ under our constitution is to give effect to the separation of powers (which justifies court intervention in relation to prorogation). Then, in what appears to be an innocuous sentence in paragraph 55, it says that it is to be “remember[ed] always that the actual task of governing is for the executive and not for Parliament or the courts.”
Yet the Benn Act manifestly contradicts this principle. It dictates how the Government must conduct negotiations with a foreign body, the EU, to the extent of obliging the Prime Minister to write specifically worded letters and accept whatever extension it offers when certain conditions are not met. In the situation when t…
