Sir Graham Brady of the 1922 Committee has entered No.10 Downing Street to meet with the Prime Minister after MPs have sent letters of no confidence and so far on Thursday morning 14 MPs have publicly called for Liz Truss to “resign.”
Sky News deputy political editor said “You can feel the nerves around the heart of Parliament here today, it’s very clear everybody is extremely on edge. If something happens it could happen extremely quickly.”
The deputy political editor said that there are four things to look out for, “Keeping a very close eye on Tory MPs – we’re up at 14 people calling for her to go.
“We’re looking at the cabinet, because messages are going in in large numbers to cabinet members saying she’s got to go.
“We’re looking to her top team, we understand there are conversations between Liz Truss and her top team about what she should do. How will they resolve themselves?
“What will figures like Therese Coffey tell her to do?
“And then we’re looking at questions about how Graham Brady, chairman of the 1922, acts.”
He added, “But there is a bigger point here. For all intents and purposes, government has stopped,” he added.
“I’ve just been told that the government has been taking Opposition Days off Labour.
“They don’t want to allow any kind of dissent… like we saw yesterday – which was an Opposition Day.
“But more meaningfully, this country has some of the biggest decisions it ever has to take ahead of them in the next 10 or so days.
“This is a crisis, this is an emergency – and you can’t really do those things without a prime minister.”
