The ex-deputy prime minister and Conservative peer Lord Heseltine has said he would not back the Tories in this week's European election because of the "Conservative & Unionist" party's pro-Brexit stance. The errant lord has defended his decision to vote for the Lib Dems in the European elections as a "matter of conscience".
Naturally this has led to demands from Brexiteer dunderheads and political pygmies that he should be expelled from the party.
Legend in his own mind, Conservative MP Andrew Bridgen said backing another party breaks party rules while his similarly intellectually challenged colleague Conor Burns said "discipline needs to be enforced, just like it was when the ERG voted against the prime minister's Brexit deal. Oh..erm.."
More from Mark Francois when we have it, as he can't bear to be ignored.
