— Anna Soubry MP (@Anna_Soubry) November 14, 2017
The BBC reports:
Pro-EU ex-minister Anna Soubry, described it as a “blatant piece of bullying that goes to the very heart of democracy”.
So Soubry wants to silence the Telegraph because she values free speech, open debate and democracy?
Question. Why does Soubry not get into a rage about being called a ‘rebel’? What’s the difference between that and ‘mutineer’? Essentially the same except one has a romantic ring to it, the other undertones of disloyalty and treachery….but rebels are acting out both those ‘qualities’ in reality as they try to overthrow whatever it is they are trying to overthrow.
Guess it depends on who the messenger is…a lefty, anti-Brexit BBC or a supposedly right-leaning paper. Which one will the pro-EU Soubry appease? Soubry is a treacherous Tory. The BBC defends her and her fellow ‘mutineers’ in its report.
Just for Soubry’s benefit…from the Oxford dictionary:
An open rebellion against the proper authorities, especially by soldiers or sailors against their officers.
So let’s have some context that the BBC doesn’t bring…and it’s all about Soubry, she’ll like that because as we know, the world revolves around her and what she wants…. but we can manage without her can’t we?….
Anna Soubry…the most pugnacious, bullying, lying, divisive Tory MP? Maybe. Crying that she is being bullied as the Telegraph outs her and her collaborators for being ‘mutineers’ on Brexit….quite happy though to name call and label Brexiteers as “ideologically driven”…seems a bit of ‘bullying’ there by her own standards….oh, and May is “very foolish” for putting a date on Brexit…despite Soubry making endless demands for ‘certainty’. She also dismisses the government position of ‘no deal is better than a bad deal’ as ‘madness’. She is also quite happy to call Brexiteers ‘Plotters’...hmmm…so accusing them of being like Guido Fawkes [the real one]?
You say mutineers, I say plotters…let’s call the Brexit thing off!
Soubry claims she is doing everything she can to bring about Brexit, to respect the will of the people, and yet everything she does and says indicates the opposite…she is out to stop Brexit in its tracks….Brexit will be ‘hugely damaging’ and a ‘serious threat’ she whinnies. Not only that but she is entirely contemptuous of the Leave voters whom she thinks are stupid, uneducated and racist…..they have been ‘been tricked, lied-to and conned’ by the ‘lies and baloney’ of the Brexiteers. Apparently she thinks ‘white working class’ Leave voters have ‘probably never even seen a migrant’ and that “we have unleashed something” through the EU referendum. Ignorant racists the lot of ’em.
She tells us ‘I am proud of my loyalty to my party and my country.’ A woman who threatened May with the pleasant prospect of her jumping ship and leaving the Tory Party if May didn’t acquiesce to her demands for a ‘soft Brexit’ [ie no Brexit]. So, ready to abandon her Party and do all she can to make negotiations with the EU extremely difficult with the intention that they fail….not much loyalty to either Party or country there…..and promising that the government will get a ‘nasty shock’ when she and her fellow mutineers vote against government policy.
So who is bullying who here?
And it was only yesterday that she monstered May yet again…
Her comment is no different to the Telegraph’s in effect…except the Telegraph is reporting, doing its job, and she is attacking her own PM…mutineering.
This is how much she respects democracy and the result of the referendum…
Anna Soubry told the Guardian she would not have supported the plebiscite if she thought it would lead to the withdrawal of the UK from the EU.
She said: “[I backed it] only because I thought we would win. Obviously I wouldn’t have been if I thought we would lose, let’s be honest.”
#standupfordemocracy my arse!
No surprise the BBC’s Times Remain propagandist, Sam Coates, is also cynically dismissive and snooty about the Telegraph’s frontpage…

Ironically Soubry is now embracing being a ‘mutineer’…it’s a badge of honour she thinks……
