Ms Stuart reunited with her fellow Vote Leave leaders Michael Gove and Mr Johnson, where she urged supporters to vote for the Tories in next month’s election to get Brexit done. Speaking at a key election speech in central London on Friday, she said Labour’s proposed Brexit was “just a version of Remain” and that her vote for Mr Johnson did not mean she was a Tory.
She claimed she had supported the Labour party under Tony Blair because it had represented a fairer society.
She said: “The Labour party of John Smith, Tony Blair and Gordon Brown has gone.”
The former Labour politician told reporters that voters will have a simple choice at the December election.
Lashing out at the Labour leadership for failing to believe in Brexit, she said: “In the referendum campaign, Vote Leave promised the vote to leave would see us take back control for our laws, borders, money and trade.
“That was three-and-a-half years ago and all this should, of course, have happened by now.
“But, Brexit has not happened because Labour, the Lib Dems and others have done everything they can to frustrate, delay and overturn the referendum result.
“Labour has voted twice to delay Brexit. The Labour leadership, the shadow cabinet and most Labour MPs do not believe in Brexit.
“And Labour’s proposed Brexit deal is so bad that not even Jeremy Corbyn can bring himself to support it.
She wrote: “I will not vote for Jeremy Corbyn, but I can vote for Brexit.
“It is the best option for all those who like me still share Labour’s traditional values but who voted to Leave and who want certainty.
“A vote for Boris Johnson this time around does not make you a Tory. But it is the only way to get Brexit done and the best way to heal the country.”
