May's Swift Revenge - Heseltine Sacked


Former Conservative Deputy Prime Minister Lord Heseltine has been sacked as a government adviser after rebelling over Brexit in the House of Lords.

Lord Heseltine backed the demand for a parliamentary vote on the final deal to be written into Brexit legislation.

The BBC reports that Heseltine learned hours later on Tuesday that he had been fired from five government advisory roles he had held.

Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned. No matter, he has never met her anyway.
