UK's May finds support after lawmakers plot to oust her

UK's May finds support after lawmakers plot to oust her”

To trigger a formal leadership challenge, 48 Conservative lawmakers need to write to the chairman of the party's so-called 1922 Committee.

In one of the most freakish British political speeches in a generation, May's address on Wednesday to her annual conference was ruined by a comedian handing her a bogus employment termination letter, repeated coughing fits and even by letters falling off the slogans on the set behind her. "We're not pointing any fingers".

Regarding Mrs May's leadership, Mr Shapps said: "If something isn't working, you have to do something about it". "We can't have a situation where a few go public with their criticism and the rest fade away".

"We don't want to write a formal letter - we don't want to do make it hard and embarrassing for Theresa".

In 2005, Conservative Party members chose Mr Cameron over David Davis, while in 2003 Iain Duncan Smith was ousted as leader after the chairman of the 1922 Committee received 25 letters from Tory MPs. May's de facto deputy, Damian Green, also said she would carry on.

"Now, what the country needs is calm leadership, and that's what I'm providing, with the full support of my cabinet", she said when asked about the efforts led by Shapps to gather sufficient support among Tory MPs to force a leadership contest. So people were surprised to then hear her say she's going to go on and on.

"The Tory Party conference was a great opportunity to reboot the party and therefore reboot the country to give it a clear sense of direction, and that didn't happen".

The Daily Telegraph has reported that a group of as-yet unnamed "Tory rebels" have said there is a "50/50 chance they will confront the Prime Minister in the next three days and demand that she steps down before the end of the year".

Speculation has swirled over the Prime Minister's position following her calamity-ridden conference speech on Wednesday.

"We can do that, and we will under her leadership".

"Trust that it is us who will take Britain in the right direction".

Environment Secretary Michael Gove, a prominent Brexit campaigner, said Friday that May had "shown tremendous grace and grit in the course of this week".

"I know that she is as determined as ever to get on with the job, she sees it as her duty to do so and she will carry on and she will make a success of this government", Green, the first secretary of state, told BBC television.

Downing Street sources insisted that Mrs May was "happy" with how the speech had gone, blaming a "conference cold" and the combined effect of 28 broadcast interviews and 19 receptions for the croaky voice which repeatedly forced her to stop.
