reports that Antoinette Geraldine Mackeson-Sandbach, known as Antoinette Sandbach, is a British politician who was elected as the Conservative Member of Parliament for Eddisbury in Cheshire at the 2015 general election. Re-elected in 2017 on a manifesto to deliver Brexit, and recently expelled by the Conservative Party she has now defected to the Liberal Democrats.

Her spouse is Matt Sherratt. She has failed to back the Libdems revoke policy amid fears of a growing internal schism on the issue. When questioned on whether she supported revoking Article 50 if her party came to power, she said her party would have to “win a majority” to do so and insisted her preferred outcome was still a confirmatory referendum. “I think what’s being offered now in the deal is so far from what was promised that we should go back and check that this is really what Britain wants” she said.

Boris Johnson’s controversial enforcer, Dominic Cummings

an architect of Brexit and a fierce critic of Brussels, is co-owner of a farm that has received €250,000 (£235,000) in EU farming subsidies, the Observer can reveal.

The revelation is a potential embarrassment for the mastermind behind Johnson’s push to leave the EU by 31 October. Since being appointed as Johnson’s chief adviser, Cummings has presented the battle to leave the EU as one between the people and the politicians. He positions himself as an outsider who wants to demolish elites, end the “absurd subsidies” paid out by the EU and liberate the UK from its arcane rules and regulations.

An Observer analysis of Land Registry documents and EU subsidy databases reveals that a farm in Durham, which Cummings jointly owns with his parents and another person, has received roughly €20,000 a year for most of the last two decades.

Remainer Lord Heseltine says farmers should be worried about EU subsidies post-Brexit. Lord Heseltine rakes in a cool £90,000 a year in subsidy payments for his Oxfordshire estate.

It’s a racket! Who pays? We all pay! Get us out of it!
