TORY rebel Dominic Grieve was last night caught sneaking into the European Commission’s London headquarters for a private meeting of campaigners intent on blocking Brexit.
Among the attendees were Tony Blair’s old spin doctor Alastair Campbell, a host of remain-supporting peers, and representatives from the George Soros’s shadowy anti-Brexit group.

Top Tory Jacob Rees-Mogg warned Grieve that he was “supping with the Devil” by meeting with the campaigners.
He told the Daily Mail: “Dominic should be careful about the company he keeps if he wishes to maintain his position that this is not about stopping Brexit.
“He is someone I trust and when he says he is not trying to frustrate Brexit I believe him but the people he is associating with are clear they do want to stop Brexit.
“If you sup with the devil you should use a long spoon and he is using an egg spoon.”
The meeting took place at the Smith Square EU building, a former base of Margret Thatcher’s that was sold to the EU in 2007 and renamed Europa House
The meeting took place at the Smith Square EU building, a former base of Margret Thatcher’s that was sold to the EU in 2007 and renamed Europa House.
The Mail claim a top-secret agenda for the meeting – ominously titled ‘Where Next for Brexit?’ – claims to connect “the main operational UK pro-EU organisations and individuals and meets under the Chatham House Rule”.
The rule means that any discussions from the meeting should not be made public.
Commons European scrutiny committee chair blasted: “It’s clear that Mr Grieve is consorting with those people who are all intent on reversing Brexit.
