Former Tory aide renews call for anti-Brexit party
The former chief of staff to Brexit Secretary David Davis has said leaving the EU will be a "calamity for our country", claiming cabinet ministers have expressed interest in a new centre party to oppose Brexit.
"The hard Brexit plan that Mrs May is pursuing is going to take our economy off a cliff, is going to make Black Wednesday look like a picnic," James Chapman told the Today programme.
"And when that happens, the Conservative Party will never be in power again."
