BRADY GOES BEGGING: Graham Brady pleads with angry Tory MPs to stop calling for leadership contest

GRAHAM Brady has reportedly begged backbench Tory MP’s to stop calling for a leadership contest sparking whispers that a leadership contest is on its way.

Sir Graham Brady, who was knighted by Theresa May in the New Year’s Honours has reportedly received around 40 letters according to Sun political reporter Harry Cole.

A senior backbencher told The Sun that Brady was “ashen-faced” at the prospect of getting one more letter.

The Sun has also learnt that Brady has told colleagues mulling over whether to send a letter recently to “be careful” and think of the “consequences” before putting pen to paper.

The 1922 Committee assesses, organises and ballots on leadership elections and challenges — meaning its power, when called upon, can be huge.

A vote of no-confidence in the Conservative leader is automatically triggered if its chair receives 48 letters, which is 15% of the parliamentary party.


Last week we reported that Graham Brady had told Young Conservatives that thought Jacob Rees-Mogg shouldn’t be Tory leader.

Rees-Mogg, who is the favourite to replace the dull Maybot and is widely popular among Young Conservatives “would fail to connect with the wider country.”

“I really like Jacob,” he said when asked if Rees-Mogg was a “viable candidate” to become party leader. “Great guy. Brilliant speaker. Knows exactly what he thinks. He’s very often right but I don’t think that it would work. He brings a lot of fun to politics. A lot of style. He is very entertaining. Cheers everybody up. And there is a real serious point as well.” Brady said.

“But it’s one thing for a lot of members of the public, or the party, to think it’s great fun and admire him for never mincing his words and speaking 18th Century English.

“It’s another thing to see that translate to being the prime minister and connecting with the whole of the country. So no I don’t see it happening.”
