Soubry- MPs changed voting intentions after threats from Brexiteers

Anna Soubry today stated that she knew at least one MP who was not voting as they wanted to on the EU withdrawal bill due to threats to them, their staff and their family.

The speaker said no MP should be subject to threats but Miss Soubry’s comments have worrying implications especially as the issue of Brexit resulted in the murder of Jo Cox just before the referendum.
The Sun and other tabloid papers ran headlines urging MPs to not vote against the government but today the government has lost one minister over Amendment 19 that would give a meaningful vote on whether to accept the deal struck by the government.
Miss Soubry did not mention which MPs had been threatened and no one has come forward saying they have been threatened however in the polarised landscape of Brexit it does not seem unlikely.
