This treacherous crew brings shame on Britain - EXPRESS COMMENT

He said to the MPs that they had "dishonoured [parliament] by your contempt of all virtue, and defiled by your practice of every vice; ye are a factious crew, and enemies to all good government; ye are a pack of mercenary wretches, and would like Esau sell your country for a mess of pottage". Since that fateful day there has probably not been a more dishonourable parliament more willing to put the interests of a foreign power, the EU, above that of its own British voters than there has been today.

Cromwell's words will never ring more true about a group of elected politicians than the MPs who voted to take no deal off the table last night.

In one fell swoop these MPs have removed Theresa May's ability to get a better deal from the EU.

These MPs have voted to give the EU £39billion of British taxpayers' money under any circumstances. It is mind-boggling.

In many ways this was little short of treachery of the British people and stands in complete contrast to the Parliament of 1939 which came together in a government of national unity to take on the spectre of Nazi Germany.

Jacob Rees-Mogg was correct to point out last night that it will take new legislation to reverse Britain leaving, deal or no deal, on March 29 but it is clear the Remainer Parliament will ensure that happens.

The treachery was at its worst with the ministers including Amber Rudd who either abstained or backed the amendment.

These Remainer ministers who have badly let down Mrs May, who has remained honourable and dutiful throughout, should do the right thing and resign. If not, they should be sacked.

This country does not want a second referendum or a general election or a new prime minister.

It wants the Brexit which the majority of the British electorate voted for but the majority of our out-of-touch, contemptuous of democracy MPs so clearly wish to thwart.

The actions of Parliament have in just 24 hours done more to damage faith in democracy than at any point in our proud history.

All those involved will share in its shame.

Horses are a better bet

WHILE Parliament was able to provide only gloom to this nation, it was good that one of our great traditions gave us plenty to cheer about.

Ladies' day at the Cheltenham Festival provided its usual mix of glamour and fun.

None will be more happy, though, than the punter who walked away with £182,567.80 from a £2 bet.

Theresa May wants some of that luck.
