Andrew Bridgen – 2023 Statement Following Expulsion from the Conservative Party

The statement made by Andrew Bridgen, the MP for North West Leicestershire, on Facebook on 26 April 2023.

My expulsion from the Conservative Party under false pretences only confirms the toxic culture which plagues our political system.

Above all else this is an issue of freedom of speech. No elected Member of Parliament should ever be penalised for speaking on behalf of those who have no voice.

The Party has been sure to make an example of me.
