In Westminster has begun the big goodbye. Since the decision of new elections, many of the members say to the house of Farewell. Around six dozen parliamentarians have decided at the beginning of the election campaign, according to the 12. Not to sit in December no longer on the green benches. Some of the prominent Ministers and Ex-Ministers, and the now world-famous Speaker of the Parliament belong to them.
In the conservative camp in the party in government, the departure of a significant Trend. Especially moderate Tories, many Pro-European, to give. Some make no secret of the fact that the party Boris Johnson is going to sharply to the right. The new policy, "with its populist trains don't like": you are no longer to be found there at home.
Johnson's brother, enters from the
To those classified as moderate Tories, and the go well, belong to the former De-facto Vice-Prime Minister David Lidington, Ex-interior Minister, Amber Rudd, and the former education Minister, Justine Greening. Sir Nicholas Soames is also a grandson of Sir Winston Churchill, who could not believe that Johnson would throw it out after many years of faithful Tory-services, together with twenty other "rebels" from the party. Not a choice of Boris Johnson turns his own brother, Jo, who feels himself with in the Cabinet was sitting, the hard Brexit course of the big brother, but in the meantime, as unbearable.
John Bercow was in the end more of the Opposition than from his old party friends in office.
On a renewed candidacy is also one of the most famous British politicians waived at all, Ken Clarke, the man, "the Prime Minister could have been". Clarke the oldest is among cottagers at all, and is called so "father of the house". He sat for 49 years, on the green upholstered benches of the Commons, and was a contemporary of an equally jovial as persistent Pro-European time.
Even Johnson's current culture Minister, Nicky Morgan, assigns to the day of the election, and after having contacted as your former Cabinet colleague Amber Rudd – powerful and in the end everything reputation in the country has lost. Meanwhile, the dig that opened up recently between Amber Rudd and Boris Johnson has not been bridged to. Rudd resigned in September from the Cabinet and from the conservative group, after Johnson had thrown the 21 "Tory rebels" from the party.
In the political rain
Of these "rebels" are now ten approved. Rudd, however, had to remain outside, in front of the self-slamming door. There, in the political rain, you are right, it was said in Downing Street. Thus, she was denied, in the elections, again as a Conservative to compete.
Might not want to avenge Johnson's just that Rudd had said during the Brexit campaign of 2016 once Boris was "the man who would be a sociable evening drive home". With other parties well-known name to say goodbye. In the case of the liberal Democrats, whose former Chairman, Sir Vince Cable draws the line, and in the case of Labour, people like the former Jeremy-Corbyn-Challenger Owen Smith go.
Louise Ellman is, after it has been frozen recently, literally from the party: The Labour veteran of Jewish origin, accused Corbyn to have the anti-Semitism in the party, the door opened.
Stand for Parliament
Last but not least, in Westminster from its Speaker passed, the speaker of the lower house. The former Tory John Bercow had accepted the office ten years ago. Bercow, the painting in his student days, is still pretty right-wing ideas, was heated in the course of his life, and, increasingly, for social liberal values and was the last of the opposition parties than of his old party friends in office have been kept.
With a certain degree of modernisation of parliamentary procedures Bercow had already made in the first half of his tenure was the talk of the. But came to real fame he during the Brexit crisis, as the representation of the people held by the Executive hard-pressed in the question, to whom in having in the UK, the sovereignty.
millions of viewers around the world have pursued this curious old-fashioned British drama in the last three years. Bercows defiant Stand for Parliament and his husky "Order, Order"-Call to become his trademark. His opponents, especially among the Brexiteers, are glad that he is now. His most bitter adversary in the government want to deny him the title of nobility is awarded to the outgoing Speaker would normally prefer.
