The MP for Lichfield and Burntwood has told Government ministers resigning over Brexit that they should “bottle their spite” and see the democratic process through.
A number of key figures have already said they will not continue their roles under Boris Johnson if, as expected, he wins the race to succeed Theresa May as Prime Minister.
Sir Alan Duncan, Phillip Hammond and David Gauke are among those who have said they will stand down.
But Lichfield MP Michael Fabricant said they were unlikely to have been part of Mr Johnson’s senior team anyway.
“They jumped before the were pushed,” he told followers on social media. “Remainers should bottle their spite and accept the democratic choice of their MPs and party members, and the democratic choice by the electorate on Brexit.
“No buts and no excuses.”
