Let’s just recap on what amounts to a BRILLIANT campaign in & out of Parliament
They’ve consistently stated they won’t vote against the PM in a no confidence vote.
They use principle to justify themselves when in this situation and remind the PM she depends on the ERG if she’s to stay on.
Both of which they know are unacceptable to the EU & therefore do nothing but waste time and distract.
With ERG members inside the cabinet, it cannot be a surprise that May keeps her own council.
After all if she wanted to undermine her position she’d just tell Cabinet.
- The ERG are amazing.
- In the face of overwhelming odds, they’ve nearly won.
- They ought to be studied as an exemplar on how to run parliamentary business, define debate, and develop Commons strategy.
So chapeau to the ERG. Strong campaign. I’ve enjoyed watching
