PM’s chief of staff helps to lose Tory council seat in Woking

(03.05.2019) Gavin Barwell, as Inside Croydon’s loyal reader will know, is the former MP for Croydon Central. After writing the book How To Lose A Marginal Seat, Barwell duly lost his parliamentary seat in 2017.

Brexit mutiny: May’s chief of staff accused of ‚going rogue‘ over Remain plot to kill no deal

Gavin Barwell was accused of going “rogue” and over-ruling whips amid an increasing clamour for the 13 ministers who voted against the Government to be sacked.

This babble about a ‚People’s Vote‘ undermines our credibility and treats people with contempt

Like you, I remember the 2016 referendum campaign. In debate after debate it was made clear that leaving the European Union had certain iron logical consequences. It meant coming out of the customs union. It meant leaving the Single Market. There would be no half-way house, no limbo of the kind proposed by the Prime Minister’s “deal” – under which we will actually abandon control of our own laws and trade policy to Brussels. No one suggested that we should become a laughable political eunuch, a non-voting EU member. No one campaigned for that.
