Theresa May to QUIT? Growing number of Tory MPs tell leader to leave amid Brexit chaos

MPs reportedly want the Prime Minister to stand down because of her handling of Brexit. Sir Brady visited Mrs May on Monday to tell her she does not have the support of her party, the Daily Telegraph reported. The visit was sparked after Mr Brady was “bombarded with text messages” by colleagues demanding that she quit.

A huge number of MPs have directly challenged the leader over the past fortnight after the second failure of her Brexit deal, the paper revealed.

A group of 15 whips confronted Mrs May before the meaningful vote on her Brexit deal last week.

One told her to resign while others warned she has lost the trust of backbenchers.

A source told The Daily Telegraph: “There was a lot of anger.”

Eurosceptic MPs also confronted the Prime Minister telling her to quit.

Nigel Evans, executive secretary of the 1922 committee, reportedly told the Prime Minister: “It’s not that people don’t believe what you say, it’s that people don’t believe you can deliver.”

Another Tory MP said: “If it goes to the next stage, there is a feeling that you shouldn’t be part of it.”

There is reportedly a major rift between Mrs May and her chief whip, Julian Smith after her speech at Downing Street on Wednesday.

The paper further revealed donations to the party are falling due to the lack of unity in the party, Sir Mick Davis said.

One MP said: “Brandon Lewis spoke and then Mick started talking about ‘we have not got any money’ and ‘why would people give money to you when you can’t sort yourselves out’.”

Mrs May cannot face a leadership challenge until December 2019 after she survived a vote of no confidence last December.

The challenge to her leadership follows the Prime Minister’s final push to get her Brexit deal through Parliament.

The EU have agreed a two-week extension delay which could continue to May 22 if Mrs May can get support for her deal.
