Conservative representative Michael Fabricant says he intends to go against his own Government when the proposal comes before the House of Commons.

The long-standing MP said leaving the EU with the current plan would create “an overwhelming sense of betrayal”.

Mr Fabricant made his comments in a column for the Telegraph.

He said: “I rarely vote against my Government, but conscience and the long-term future of my nation, and yes, my party too, take precedence.

“I could not look myself in the mirror if I supported this deal.”
