Tory MEPs plotting to oust their leader for supporting Brexit

The leader of the Conservative Party's pro-EU Europe of Conservatives & Reformists group in the EU Parliament has come under pressure to resign after backing the campaign to leave the EU.

Syed Kamall MEP came out in favour of leaving the EU last week and we said that his days were probably numbered as a result. Predictably, his colleagues are plotting to replace him already making it very clear that supporting continued EU membership is mandatory for any MEP in the ECR group.
