CHAMPION WOULD OPT FOR NO DEAL
Rotherham MP Sarah Champion is the latest Labour MP to break ranks with the Remain lobby now dictating Brexit policy. Champion told Politics Live that she would choose 'no deal' over no Brexit (watch below). It's no great surprise to see Champion adopting this stance, her constituency returned a 68 per cent Leave vote. She follows the likes of Melanie Onn, Ruth Smeeth, Stephanie Peacock and Caroline Flint, all of whom backed Remain three years ago, but have become increasingly vocal about respecting the Leave mandate (and saving their seats). However, don't expect the likes of Yvette Cooper, Tom Watson or Mary Creagh to join that list any time soon!
