PETER GIBSON, the Tory candidate in Darlington, has taken to his Facebook page to criticise those seeking to stop no- deal Brexit and states that the town’s current MP should not be supported for doing so.

Of course, there are many moderate Tory MPs – probably more than 50, including former cabinet ministers Phillip Hammond and David Gauke as well as former Prime Minister Sir John Major – who are taking the same position as Jenny Chapman on the concerns about a no-deal Brexit and the by-passing of parliament.

I am sure that the Brexit Party will be pleased that its candidate in Darlington will have Mr Gibson’s endorsement.

In his desperation to encourage the Brexit Party not to stand in Darlington, Peter Gibson is tying himself in knots.
