May in fight of her life to save job

Back to News

The rumour yesterday that 48 MPs had written letters of no confidence to Sir Graham Brady, Chairman of the 1922 Committee, has been confirmed this morning.

Whilst travelling Europe to renegotiate her Brexit agreement and the Irish backstop it would appear that Theresa May has let her eye off the ball at home. This is the news that May would have been dreading and despite Jacob Rees Mogg rallying his troops over 3 weeks ago it would appear that Monday’s decision from May to postpone the Meaningful Vote has galvanised proceedings. This move has seen the pound slip and retest the 20 month lows seen at the start of the week. Ballots will open tonight at 1800 GMT and remain open for two hours and May will need to secure the support of 158 Tory MPs in order to keep a hold of her job which she is set to fight for. If she looses tonight’s popularity vote then a full blown leadership challenge will take place and the UK could have a new Prime Minister by the end of the week. If she wins tonight’s vote she faces immunity and can’t be challenged for a year (presumably she will also win a meal for her campmates tonight).
