Top Conservative backbenchers have allegedly told Theresa May, it is time for her to set a time for departure.
On Tuesday afternoon Sir Graham Brady, chairman of the 1922 Committee was seen going in to 10 Downing Street, as the rumour mill grow’s that May is going to announce possibly tomorrow, she plans to step down as prime minister.
It emerged earlier today that Theresa May is to make a speech at the 1922 Committee tomorrow, MPs were expecting Sir Graham to tell May that a message of her stepping down would be welcomed by colleagues.
Some MPs are demanding May set a date for her departure as a price for them backing her, on the grounds a new leader could be chosen for the next phase of negotiations over the UK’s departure from the EU.
However, many MPs believe that May will make her final plea, for the twice rejected Brexit deal and that she could, gamble the lot over her third meaningful vote on Thursday.
Tim Loughton, former minister told BBC2’s Politics Live, “It’s become inevitable. For somebody who has got a huge sense of public service, it’s a great tragedy that it will end, I fear, in the way it’s going to end.”
Adding, “I’m afraid, that her position has become untenable. The leadership is not there.”
