I have a lot of respect for how the right hon. Lady has conducted herself during the debate, but her criticisms of our Front Bench team, particularly the shadow Brexit Ministers, are particularly unfair. In any case, her criticism of our Front Bench team would carry more weight in this House if she was clearer about which voting Lobby she is going to be walking through on several crucial issues. It is all very well taking to the airways and speaking in the newspapers about the fight she will put up on these issues, but she has to put her vote where her mouth is.
