These MPs are publicly supporting May ahead of confidence vote


As Theresa May is set to face a vote of confidence tonight, a Sky News analysis has revealed that at least 152 Conservative MPs have publicly expressed their support for the Prime Minister.

Among them are Sajid Javid, Michael Gove, and the foreign secretary Jeremy Hunt:

When asked if the PM winning tonight’s confidence vote by just one vote will be enough for her to remain in 10 Downing Street, Chancellor Philip Hammond told media: “Well one vote clearly is enough – in any election competition that’s first past the post.

“But I’m very clear that the Prime Minister will have the support of the great majority of parliamentary colleagues and I think what this vote today will do is flush out the extremists who are trying to advance a particular agenda which would really not be in the interests of the British people or the British economy.

“Leaving the European Union without a deal would be bad for Britain.”
