|We have witnessed a shameful period in politics in which Remain MPs sought to overturn a democratic vote for the first time. The 17.4 million people who had the guts to vote for Brexit have been denigrated. They had no choice but to suck it up until the general election.
Virtually all of the extreme Remainers in Parliament got the order of the boot. MPs such as Anna Soubry and Dominic Grieve were rejected and I couldn’t be happier.
The bitter moment came as Zac Goldsmith lost his seat in Richmond Park.
His visionary father Sir James founded the Referendum Party with the sole policy of gaining a referendum on EU membership. Zac, a principled Brexiteer, was in one of the most Remain-leaning seats in the country.
I am no fan of the House of Lords but I cheered on the decision to make him Lord Goldsmith and carry on his job as an environment minister.
