A NEWLY-ELECTED Tory MP who branded Brexit the “greatest vote ever” in her maiden speech has insisted she would “always bet on this country”. Kemi Badenoch, who received a chorus of praise from her Conservative party colleagues following her rousing speech, said it was about reminding people Britain was “full of good people” and that “we will be alright”. Speaking on BBC Radio 4’s Any Questions?, the Saffron Walden MP stood by her speech, in which she said Brexit was the “greatest ever vote of confidence in the project of the United Kingdom”. She said: “I did say that because there were only two choices on that paper – it’s not quite how I would have wanted a referendum – but it was Leave or Remain. “If that is the choice then I will always bet on this country, I always will and so I voted Leave. “It’s basically saying that we are a country full of good people – we will be alright. The European Union is not the same as the Europe, we are still Europeans, we’re just not part of a political project.” Ms Badenoch also rubbished the idea for the need of a new rival party to oppose Brexit. She said: “I think there is a real danger here in people who have not been able to accept a democratic result doing every single thing they can to overturn it. “We had a referendum last year, I was someone who voted Leave – it was a very difficult decision and it took a long time for me to get there – for us to then just say ‘oh we’re not doing this anymore, we made a mistake’ I don’t think anyone’s going to follow it.” The comments come after the Tory politician was hailed for her passionate address in the House of Commons. She told MPs: “We live in difficult times and face historic challenges. People are widely concerned about what Brexit will mean for the country, jobs and families, but, I do not believe winter is coming. “I believe the vote for Brexit was the greatest ever vote of confidence in the project of the United Kingdom. That vision of a global Britain is a project as a young African girl I dreamed of becoming part of. “As a British woman, I now have the great honour of delivering that project for my constituents in the greatest Parliament on earth.” Since the vote, the Lib Dems have come under fire for calling for another EU referendum and insisting the UK could still stay within the bloc. After being named party leader, Sir Vince Cable said: “What we now need is an exit from Brexit and the exit from Brexit comes as a result of the policy that we have adopted, which is that we must consult the British public at the end of the process." -~-~~-~~~-~~-~- Please watch: "Sorry Nicola!
