Anna Soubry: Stop calling us 'remoaners'

MPs who voted to remain in the EU referendum should stop being labelled "remoaners" who wish to block Brexit, Conservative MP Anna Soubry has said.

The MP for Broxtowe in Nottinghamshire said that remainers would "accept and honour" the referendum's outcome and asked if leave MPs would "finally accept that?".

The remain campaigner added that while she did not "like the result [of the Brexit vote] and yes, I do believe the people made a terrible mistake", she would push for a Brexit deal with the best outcome for the UK.

Nicky Morgan has said the Government must get on with triggering Article 50, but criticised it for only agreeing to publish a plan on Brexit after the Prime Minister faced pressure from Labour MPs and those within her own party.

It is "not good enough that these things are dragged out of the Government by opposition day motions," the former education secretary said, adding that the Government must take "more of the initiative".

Ms Morgan added that it was "important that we do not close off options before we have to do so", and said EU nationals living in the UK should be given assurances that they can stay post-Brexit.
