Stephen Phillips MP resigns over irreconcilable differences with his party

Conservative MP, Stephen Phillips, has announced his intention to resign as an MP.

He has told whips that his values are no longer those of the government and that he disagrees with Theresa May's decision to oppose attempts by anti-democracy to delay or overturn the Brexit vote through the courts.

Phillips represents the safe Tory seat of Sleaford & North Hykeham which the Conservatives will safely retain at the ensuing by-election.
