TORY Remainer rebel Amber Rudd is eyeing up a new seat where she can run as an independent at the next election.
The former Home Secretary faces defeat in her Hastings and Rye constituency where she has a slim 346 majority.
Lib Dems have offered to give the Remainer a clear run by not fielding a candidate if she stands in Tory rebel Sir Nicholas Soames’s Remain-voting Mid-Sussex seat.
But her spokesman insisted: “Amber has no plans to stand as a candidate there.”
Ms Rudd quit the Cabinet and the Tory party last month in protest over the expulsion of Remainer rebels.
In her resignation letter, she said she joined the Cabinet in good faith accepting that No Deal had to be on the table to help clinch improved departure terms.
But she wrote: “However, I no longer believe that leaving with a deal is the Government’s main objective.”
Upon announcing her resignation, Ms Rudd accused the PM of an “assault on democracy”.
