Tory MP Nigel Evans broke into an enraged rant at the fact that the Tory government had still failed to uphold the referendum result due to Remainer interference. He noted that with a general election he trusts the public to give clear instructions on what they want following the three years since the initial vote. While on Any Questions Mr Evans also clashed with expelled Tory MP Antoinette Sandbach as she accused him of voting down Theresa May’s deal three times.
On the topic of a general election, he said: “As I said with about 20 permutations we will see what happens on Monday night with the fixed term Parliament act.
“But it does seem rather strange, I know it has been referred to as a coup.
“But it is a very British coup when you have got a British Prime Minister actually offering the leader of the opposition a general election on October 15.
“He’s trusting the people then to deliver what verdict they want.
