The toppling of Theresa: Day 14


WITH the Conservative High Command failing to command, none of them prepared to step up and save their party, and the risk that as a result of their paralysis Theresa May’s premiership will continue into eternity, local party chairmen have decided it’s time for action.

Christopher Hope of the Telegraph reported yesterday that they may be ‘just weeks away from triggering a little-known process that could help to bring down Theresa May’.

He writes:

Party chairmen are circulating a petition calling for the party’s National Convention, which represents the grassroots, to call an Extraordinary General Meeting to pass a vote of no confidence in Mrs May.

If the petition motion is signed by more than 65 association chairmen, the party is obliged to hold the meeting. So far between 40 and 50 party chairmen have signed it, and the threshold could be passed as early as next week.

Dinah Glover, the London East area chairman who has organised the petition, said the extraordinary meeting – the first in the party’s history – could be held as soon as next month.

Ms Glover told the Telegraph: ‘What we need is a new leader who can break the impasse, who passionately believes that Britain has a bright Brexit future.’
