A senior Tory politician will announce today that she is abandoning Brexit in protest at its “hate and xenophobia” and defecting to the Remain campaign.
With splits opening in the Leave camp, Baroness Warsi, the former communities minister who co-chaired the British Conservative Party, accused Michael Gove, the justice secretary and Brexit campaigner, of peddling “complete lies”.
Lady Warsi said that the final straw for her was hearing Nigel Farage, the Ukip leader, defend a poster with the slogan “breaking point” depicting refugees trudging across Europe.
