May’s #Brexit – the challenge from within

| November 14, 2017 | 0 Comments

British PM Theresa May says she is “no quitter”, but that assertion is getting sorely tested as the vibes around her leadership get worse and worse.

The weekend’s media round brought news that Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson and Environment Secretary Michael Gove sent her a letter essentially dictating how she should handle Brexit, while others reported that 40 Conservative MPs have agreed to sign a letter of no-confidence in her – just eight shy of the number needed to trigger a leadership contest.

It comes in the week that parliament will get to work on the Withdrawal Bill enabling Brexit; some are seeing that as a test of cross-party willingness to soften the terms of Brexit.
