THE CONSERVATIVE Party has been accused of ‘hiding’ the real number of No Confidence letters after a leak from an ERG Wattsapp Group revealed that the magic 48 had been reached.
Steve Baker MP told the ERG Whatsapp group chat that they have the numbers to force a vote of no confidence.

Tory MP Andrew Bridgen also said he believed the Tories were hiding the real number of letters of no confidence.
The Pro-Brexiteer MP and member of the influential European Research Group (ERG) said he is confident that the numbers required have been reached.
Bridgen – who put his letter into 1922 committee chairman Graham Brady back in July – claimed at the time on the BBC’s Daily Politics programme he believed the Tories were “there or thereabouts” with the 48 letters required to trigger a vote of no confidence in Theresa May.
In July, we received a tip from several high-level sources that claimed the magic 48 had been reached.
Multiple high-level sources told Politicalite that the required 48 letters from Conservative MPs to the Chair of the 1922 Committee, Graham Brady, expressing no confidence in the Prime Ministers leadership had been received.
The Committee must consider and hold a vote of no confidence in the leadership of Mrs May if 48 letters are reached.
All Conservative MPs will be eligible to participate and she must win the backing of half of her peers to retain the leadership. If she cannot do this THEN there will be a leadership contest.
Is Graham Brady hiding the real number of letters to keep a squatter in Number 10?
