As many as 100 local members were expected to vote against Dominic Grieve

It followed a petition on signed by more than 38,000 urging the local association to deselect him.

Mr Grieve has supported a second referendum and last week said Theresa May’s attack on parliament for blocking her Brexit deal left him “never more ashamed to be Conservative”.

Grieve must now ask the local association to be reselected to fight in the next General Election.

The Beaconsfield Conservative Association will then hold a vote on their decision.

Grieve told members that their presence was evidence that “participatory democracy is not dying”.

They responded by laughing, with one adding: “We’re here to boot you out!” it was reported.
