Speculation over Theresa May is on the verge quitting is growing in the Corridors of Westminster as her key Brexit legislation has been pulled from the Commons schedule.
Downing Street has insisted the second reading will take place of the Withdrawal Agreement Bill (WAB) in the week beginning 3 June.
Although it was not announced when the government set out the forthcoming agenda today.
However, Mark Spencer the governments whip said, “We will update the House on the publication and introduction of the Withdrawal Agreement Bill on our return from the Whitsun recess.”
According to some reports May’s fate could be sealed on Friday when she meets Sir Graham Brady of the 1922 Committee, other reports are saying she will still hold office when President Trump visits for his State visit.
Sir Graham told hournalists, “I will be meeting with the Prime Minister on Friday following her campaigning in the European elections… and following that meeting I will be consulting with the 1922 executive.”
Yet again May is being asked to give a date of when she will leave as Sir Geoffrey Clifton-Brown told the Press Association on Thursday, “I want her to give a timetable for when she will go.
“I think this blank denial from Number 10 today may be a smokescreen because she does not want to influence the outcome of the European elections.
“Maybe she will still quit tomorrow.”
Sir David Evennett is the latest Conservative to demanding May’s resignation. He said on Twitter, “Theresa May must now resign. We need a new PM a new Cabinet and a new approach to Brexit.”
On Wednesday the former House of Commons leader, Andrea Leadsom quit the government and said I have resigned with a “heavy heart” and added she no longer believes in the governments approach on Brexit.
On Leadsom resignation May disagreed with her assessment but did say she is sorry to someone of her “passion, drive and sincerity.”
“I do not agree with you that the deal which we have negotiated with the European Union means that the United Kingdom will not become a sovereign country.”
Ben Leadsom the husband stopped his bicycle and told reporters, “It was a tough day yesterday, but she’s happy she made the right decision.”
