Stamford MP Nick Boles accuses top Tories of planning a ‘coup d’etat’
Stamford MP Nick Boles has accused senior Conservatives of planning a “coup d’etat” in their bid to deliver Brexit.
His comments follow Lincolnshire Conservative MP Sir Edward Leigh proposing that a new prime minister temporarily closes parliament to allow Brexit to happen.
Current government policy is that unless the government makes a formal move to delay Brexit, the UK leaves the European Union on October 31, deal or no deal.
