Remainers are staging the first coup against the British people, says former Deputy Chairman of the Conservative Party
The Conservatives are under more pressure than ever before over Brexit and this week Christopher Hope is joined by Tory voices from the grassroots to the leadership to discuss the future of the party - and of the country.
Among them, former Conservative Deputy Chairman Robert Halfon MP forecasts turmoil if Remainers continue to fight Brexit. He tells us how the UK’s relationship with democracy has changed, and explains his own journey from Remain voter to Brexiteer.
Mr Halfon, a former minister, tells the podcast: "For the first time, it's not a coup against the leader, it's a coup against the people."
Also on the podcast: former Conservative leader Iain Duncan-Smith MP, ex-Cabinet minister John Whittingdale MP and former Housing minister Nick Boles MP, plus David Evans - one of Theresa May's councillors from Maidenhead - tells Chopper something he’s yet to tell the Prime Minister. Camilla Tominey, the new assistant editor at the Telegraph, also makes her debut on the podcast.
