Anna Soubry – The Laughably Unwitting MP

Anna Soubry
Anna Soubry has no idea she was viewed by her constituents as a proxy to bring forth the EU Referendum.

I’m a Broxtowe resident and I voted for this woman in the 2015 general elaction, but you can take comfort in the fact that the only reason she was voted in was because she was the Conservative candidate at that time, and that the Conservatives had promised an EU Referendum. She has served her purpose and will never get into power ever again! …Hopefully.

Anna Soubry has been such a disappointment. The tell-tale sign something was not quite right was when she discovered she had won the Broxtowe seat in the 2015 general election and reacted in a way that only a child or Miss World would react – surprised and excitable! –  “I can’t believe it!”

Of course, my vote (and trillions of other votes) for Soubry was simply a proxy vote for the EU Referendum, but that doesn’t mean I didn’t have optimism and faith in my choice of candidate. My second choice would have been the UKIP tick-box on the ballot paper, but I’m sure you understand why I chose the Conservatives. [If you don’t, I’m happy to reply to any comments you post in the blog]

So, Anna wins her Broxtowe seat, gets promoted to some high position in government because she increased her vote by loads and loads, and expects she will stay in high office after we vote to stay in the EU because that is the side she took a long time ago. So far so good.

But then we vote to leave the EU, and Anna Soubry must be thinking the never-ending beautiful sunset is about to turn to darkness with the impending arrival at the end of the line for the gravy train. – “This train terminates here. Please check you have everything before you disembark.”

Not easy for someone like Soubry who has her kitchen sink installed in First Class on the EU gravy train! It must be such an upheaval. But I’m struggling to feel sorry for her, even when she does vote in favour of triggering Article 50.

Anna Soubry has no idea why she is in the position she’s in. She actually believes she was voted in on policy and personal convictions, but, in reality, she was voted in simply on the promise of an EU Referendum.

She will not win again.
