    That's the UK's democracy under the far right, and it's just going to get furher reicht until the hardliners are appeased.
    De-selected mps are perfectly entitled to stand for election, just not as Tory party reps. Along with the latter, constituencies then get the choice of two right-of-centre candidates, not one.

    I don't think they should be de-selected though.

    Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.

    Anyone* is perfectly entitled to stand for election.

    The problem is that if the government is making a rule that only MPs who agree with it 100% are allowed to stay in the party, then it’s not really a democratic party any more, nor is it a democratic parliament. “You must agree with us, no dissenting, no debate, no discussion, or you will be sacked”

    A Tory MP who wants to do what is best for his constituents will be sacked if what they want differs one jot or tittle from the diktat of Cummings.

    Finally the UK is exposed as the dictatorship it really is.
