Following Theresa May’s announcement earlier today that she would be seeking a longer extension to Article 50 and attempt to find a cross-party agreement with Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour Party, there has been absolute consternation amongst Tory hard Brexiteers.

Earlier today, Mrs May signalled a significant shift in the government’s Brexit stance, indicating that she was now willing to compromise on her red lines and would agree to a much softer form of Brexit if Parliament agreed to it.

Furthermore, Mrs May also effectively ruled out the possibility of a No Deal Brexit – the absolute holy grail for Tory Brexiteers.

Following her statement, several members of the hard-right European Research Group gave their reactions – and one in particular summed up just how precarious the situation within the Tory Party now is.

Sky News reporter Lewis Goodall tweeted that he had “Just talked to two ERG MPs” and that “Angry doesn’t quite cut it“, with the Tory MP reportedly stating:

“This is serious stuff. She [Theresa May] has f*cked our party. She is f*cking brexit. She is f*cking the country.”

The Tory MP also reportedly went on to add:

“She is getting this through off the back of opposition votes. What is the point of being the government? This is all about her rotten legacy and she doesn’t care what she screws in the process, including the public interest and party she goes on so much about.”

Whilst the leader of the ERG, Jacob Rees-Mogg, responded to Mrs May’s significant soft Brexit shift by stating:

“What was announced today was an attempt to overturn Brexit in an attempt to do a deal with the socialists. It’s very serious.”

Adding:

“No-one voted for a May-Corbyn coalition.”

Theresa May has been desperately attempting to keep the numerous factions within her party together for the past two years, but it now seems extremely likely that her pivot towards a soft Brexit may turn out to be the straw that breaks the camel’s back.

Evolve needs your help more than ever!

We rely on the generosity of our readers to help fund the majority of our work - but we need a little more to make ends meet and enable us to grow.

If we can reach 1,000 regular subscribers, we will become entirely financially sustainable - and we'll also have a little extra so we can build upwards and outwards to make our work have an even bigger impact.

In the last month alone, our work on the Environment Bill has helped force a change in the law for the better. And, since Evolve was founded, our uniquely viral style of journalism has repeatedly put the establishment on the back foot and helped force genuinely positive progression.

But we want to do far more - and we need your help to do it.

The best way you can help us is by becoming a Monthly or Annual subscriber. This kind of regular income allows us to better plan for the future - firstly so we can pay the bills, and then so we can set aside funds and time to work on extra projects.

However, if you can't commit to a regular payment, one-off donations - no matter how small - also make a big difference to us, and we genuinely make the most of every single penny.

So, if you appreciate the work that Evolve does and you want to see us make an even bigger impact on the world, please think about contributing to our work in whatever way you possibly can.
