Pressure mounting on Theresa May from Tory MPs - BBC

Tory Brexiteers are increasingly confident they have enough support to trigger a no-confidence vote in Theresa May as party leader.

If 48 Conservative MPs submit letters to say they no longer support her, a leadership challenge will be launched.

There is no confirmation but sources, including a cabinet minister, have said they believe 48 letters have been sent.

The BBC has also been told the senior backbencher who receives the letters has asked to see the PM on Wednesday.

right now, madness reigns.

Quite frankly, it's exhausting. I sympathise with those who've been close to the Trump white House; if you care about good government, then watching this unfold and constantly having to respond to the next idiocy just begins to defeat you. There have been hours spent watching events in stupefied disbelief.

Brexit? Right now, that's so 6:30. It's 8:00, on to something madder

keep to the Fen Causeway
