TCW’s Brexit Roll of Honour: Man of democratic principle, Owen Paterson


CONFUSED Brexiteer MPs appear to believe they are impaled on the horns of a dilemma, as Tim Bradshaw writes here today. They are not. There is a higher principle at issue, which the great Charles Moore finally got to by the end of his Telegraph article on Friday, ‘I don’t envy pro-Brexit MPs – they are now left with an impossible dilemma’, and which Owen Paterson MP was quick to highlight and quote.

Spotting his tweet early yesterday morning was one ray of light in an otherwise deeply gloomy day:

Whatever his wishful thinking about the Malthouse agreement, here’s evidence of at least one MP prepared to stand his ground on principle. Hurrah for him.
