FIFTY Tory MPs have met to discuss a plot to OUST Theresa May according to reports.
At least 48 letters of no confidence need to be submitted to 1922 Committee chairman Sir Graham Brady to trigger a vote on her premiership, and Sky sources suggest it could arrive within just a few weeks.
On Monday Politicalite reported that Boris Johnson was ready to launch a leadership bid in the ‘coming days or weeks.’
Sky News today reported that the MPs would be “shocked” if a vote did not occur after the Tory party conference in Birmingham, which runs from 30 September to 3 October.
Government ministers have reportedly confided to members of the European Research Group (ERG) of Tory eurosceptics and said that Mrs May “has to go”.
Boris Johnson is the likely favourite to replace failed Mrs May.
Mr Johnson is working with Lynton Crosby and they have a ‘timeline to power’ that will ‘torpedo the PM’s Chequers plan for Brexit.’
Team Boris has reportedly compiled the required 48+ names to send to influential 1922 Committee.
On Monday, reports in May backing papers such as The Sun and The Daily Mail attacked Boris further and details of Boris’ private life were leaked in a ‘Dirty Dossier’ compiled by Theresa May’s team at Number 10.
