The Conservative Woman’s readers are in no doubt. It’s time for the European Research Group and other Brexiteers in Parliament to stop being risk-averse, man up and set the ball rolling to get rid of Theresa May as Prime Minister before it is too late.
This is what our poll results say. A full 94 per cent of you (and no, this is not Ceausescu’s Romania – no arms were twisted) said it was high time for Brexiteers to call for a vote of no confidence in Mrs May.
Should Brexiteer MPs call a vote of no confidence in Mrs May now?

Some voices cautioned that she would win: ‘Until you can deselect the faux conservative MPs it is a little pointless. Sadly all that can be done is that the Brexiteer MPs must just say, and make abundantly clear, they will vote down her deal, and will opt for No Deal.’
Others, more cynical, argue that exactly what they fear is that this will not happen. The risk is that if her deal does get voted through Parliament by MPs who’ve succumbed to Project Fear Mark 2 regarding a no-deal, we’ll be in a worse position than before the Referendum.
Most, however, think the time for weighing risks is well past. She should have been ousted long ago, you overwhelmingly agree. And she should be sent packing now before she does any more damage.
PierrePrendre pretty much summed it up when he said:
‘I think it is without qualification the most extraordinary spectacle I have witnessed in 60 years of watching UK politics – a prime minister whom no one trusts is taking us to a destination where we do not want to go and no one is lifting a finger to stop her.’
