The government was thrust into chaos last night as the DUP teamed up with the European Research Group and threatened to vote down key legislation if the PM did not propose a satisfactory Brexit deal. The moves have made the Prime Minister’s tenure at the top look increasingly risky.

Theresa May can therefore be thankful for at least one ringing endorsement from a member of her Party this morning. Conservative MP for Wrekin, Mark Pritchard, started his day with this helpful message for his colleagues:


Lots of wild and loose talk about leadership moves. There is no vacancy. However, on a technical point, if a vacancy did arise process need not take more than 2 working weeks – 4 days in Commons (if needed) and 6 days with membership – does not need to be an overly long process

Mr S is sure Theresa May will be delighted to know she technically can be deposed and replaced in two working weeks…
