Pro-Brexit Tory MPs openly discuss how to get rid of Theresa May

Theresa May

A group of about 50 lawmakers in British Prime Minister Theresa May’s government who oppose her proposals for a post-Brexit deal with the European Union have met to discuss how and when they could force her out of her job, the BBC reported on Wednesday.

The lawmakers, part of the European Research Group (ERG), an anti-EU grouping in May’s Conservative party, met on Tuesday night and openly discussed May’s future as leader, the BBC said citing an unnamed source.

A number at the meeting said they had already submitted letters of no confidence in May, the source told the BBC. Under Conservative rules, a leadership election is triggered if 15 percent of Conservative lawmakers, currently 48, demand a vote of no confidence.
The ERG has condemned May’s plans for Britain to remain in a free trade zone for goods with the EU after it leaves the bloc in March next year but has faced criticism itself for failing to suggest a detailed alternative.
