The Telegraph reports that Theresa May will face a “stalking horse” challenge to topple her as Prime Minister if she waters down Brexit, citing senior Tories.

Well surely this is no surprise?
The only reason that May is still in place at No. 10 is that Tories are scared of precipitating another election and losing to a Jeremy Corbyn led radical left-wing Labour Party.
But the right of the Conservative Party are so pre-ocupied with Brexit that they’ve failed to notice that the country has moved on from the Brexit referendum. People have other concerns apart from Brexit and Jeremy Corbyn’s radical left wing supporters are fanning the flames.
Do the right of the Conservative Party seriously think that Boris Johnson could win against Jeremy Corbyn?

Dr Alf is right, to reinforce the point the Sunday Times has reported today that May has been given 10 days to shape up or ship out and the £5000 GBP looks and is derisory.
The Leader of Kensington and Chelea Borough Council is a Conservative and is in denial,claiming that his council is on the ground helping people,that a “Gold Command” is in place and that the tragedy is bigger than the ability of any one local authority to handle despite the fact that his council owns Grenfell Towers and all the surrounding buildings.
May’s response should have been to send in a “hit squad” to take over the management of the council and remove this man who is not up to the job.
Her second response should have been to direct the police to seize all e mails, computers, tablets, memory sticks, smartphones and paper correspondence relating to the council’s dealings with KCTMO,its contractors,subcontractors,suppliers and cladding providers as well as fire risk assessments and the paper/electronic trail between the London Fire Brigade,fire risk assessors working for KCTMO and the authority.
As things stand much of this data could go missing or get shredded but once again MAY is behind the “eight ball”.
So far 18 letters have been sent to the Tory backbench 1922 Committee so with 32 more,May is on the train to Maidenhead and a new era will begin.
There can be no election now because the opportunities to deal with Jeremy Corbyn have been squandered so Boris or whoever the new Prime Minister is to become will have to regain popularity by for once doing the right things.
