LORD Heseltine has warned the House of Lords that the Conservative Party will suffer in future elections if they deliver the Prime Minister's Brexit deal.
Lord Heseltine, who has previously called for another vote on leaving the EU, claimed the Tories would not be forgiven for delivering Brexit. The Prime Minister has defended her agreed Brexit deal with Brussels claiming it delivers on the 2016 EU referendum. Speaking in the House of Lords, he said: “I tell you. There are no solutions that helps the fortunes of the least privileged in the most stressful circumstances that are dissociable from public expenditure.
“If this House is solemnly going to vote knowingly as we have heard here today for a slower economy, for lower tax revenues, for lower public expenditure.
“Those who will suffer the most are those least able to bear a strain.
“When the election comes, it will have been a Tory that led the referendum campaign.
“It will have been a Tory Government that perpetuated the frozen living standards.
“It will have been a Tory Government that is blamed for what we are talking about today.”
