    I hear the 'great man' Farage has been visiting friends in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London. I wonder who?

    How old were you when he sneaked in as a Prime minister on the back of Heseltine's rebellion against Thatcher????? Bleedin Coward then and now, He only won the 1992 General election because Labour fielded that Taff tosser Kinnock! PLus the Sun front page didn't exactly do Major any harm....

    As for the Irish question, The British government changed policy, whats so brave about that?....Doing the right thing and bringing people together and not dividing them as an act of policy is morally correct. Pity we didn't do that a hundred years earlier under Disraeli. Creating a problem and then claiming to be the cure is not my idea of leadership or statesmanship..... boy oh boy!!!

    Heseltine sacked over his comments on brexit . oh dear how sad , about turn quick march , turn left , the grass is just in the field , go gerrit tiger . Now maybe other dinosaurs will take note , fkin marvelous hey , the horse has bolted, their arrogance is outstanding , no speeches from them before but now the swill in the trough is gonna dry up its crying time for them , well done the one's who never voted against the govt , they believe in democracy and the will of the people , maybe this is the demise of the unelected lords who feed off the tax payer , out with the lot of them ., anyhoooo one down 2 to go B,LIAR AND GRAYMAN THE CURRY POUNCER . .

    LONDON — Prime Minister Theresa May has sacked Lord Heseltine from five government roles after he voted against the government on Brexit.

    The life-long Europhile and former trade secretary under Margaret Thatcher, used a House of Lords speech on Tuesday to savage the government's three leading Brexiteers and to call for a "fightback" against Brexit.

    "My own personal decision has been clearly established since I joined the Conservative party in 1951," he said.

    "I deeply regret the outcome of the [EU] referendum."

    He added that while it was right for May to have appointed three leading Brexiteers — Boris Johnson, David Davis and Liam Fox — to lead Brexit negotiations, he had "naively" expected that they would know what they were doing.

    "I also took the view, perhaps naively, that as campaigners for Brexit it was not unreasonable to assume that they might have answers to the numerous issues that we face," he said.

    He then declared that the "fightback [against Brexit] starts here."

    Watch Heseltine mock Boris, Davis and Fox:

    Heseltine went on to vote against the government on a crucial vote on whether there should be a "meaningful vote" on the outcome of Theresa May's Brexit negotiations.

    The government suffered a huge defeat in the Lords on the issue last night when Heseltine joined more than a dozen Tories rebelled.

    Heseltine told the Today programme on Wednesday that he had not been warned against voting against the government. "I have had no relationship with Number 10 since the new prime minister," he said.

    Explaining his decision to rebel, he added that: "The referendum result is the most disastrous peacetime result we have seen" and "you have to do what you believe to be right."

    Heseltine was not contacted directly by May.

    A spokesperson for the prime minister told Business Insider that: "It was widely speculated that this would happen and it came as no surprise to him."

    "He was whipped as a Conservative peer, he advised the governemt and that was not consistent with voting against the government."

    May's decision to sack Heseltine from several unpaid advisory roles will be seen as a warning to growing numbers of Conservative MPs currently considering rebelling on the issue when it returns to the Commons next week.
