Resigning the Whip?

Post by bindeweede » Wed Dec 19, 2018 11:20 pm

So Anna Soubry says (Twitter) that she will resign the whip if Govt agrees to a no deal Brexit. And she adds that it is not the same as resigning from the Tory party.

I wonder if anyone can explain, as I confess I am mystified.

ETA. Doing a little search, there was also this from Soubry. (18.12.18)
A responsible Government would have taken #nodeal off the table years ago. Instead they’ve said it wasn’t a problem & better than a “bad deal”. What a shameful carry on from the party of business to be putting jobs & prosperity at risk in order to blackmail #Conservative MPs.

I don't know about the Tories but in the Labour Party you have resigned completely if you resign the whip. Something that Frank Field seems to have been unaware of until recently when he tried to pull the same stunt.
