TREASON May may have narrowly avoided Parliamentary defeat this week and dodged another bullet when former Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson did not explicitly call for her head but the crisis continues.
Gerard Batten tweeted earlier this interesting information. He quotes a “well-informed source” from within the Conservative Party as saying that over 7,500 members (10% of the entire membership) have left.
I have it on good authority from a source inside the Conservative Party that around 7,500 members have resigned in the last two months. That’s not just failed to renew its actively resigned. That’s probably well over 10% of their membership.

Meanwhile, the row over government cheating in the crunch votes continues. Government Chief Whip, Julian Smith is facing calls to resign over revelations that he told Tory MPs to break ‘pairing’ agreements where an opposition MP who is unable to vote due to a parenting issue is paired with a government MP who does not vote.
Tory Chair Brandon Lewis ‘broke the pair’ with Lib Dem MP Jo Swinson who has recently given birth in what Mr Lewis described as an “honest mistake”.
Mrs May will doubtless be hoping the upcoming recess provides some relief but that looks highly unlikely.
