New doubts over Theresa May's future hit Brexit-bound UK

New doubts over Theresa May's future hit Brexit-bound UK

The pound is now trading at 1.307, down nearly 2.5 percent so far this week, the worst since its 4.1 percent weekly decline in 2016 in the aftermath of the Brexit referendum.

Divisions over the future of British Prime Minister Theresa May have burst into the open with a former chairman of her party saying 30 Conservative members of Parliament have backed a plot to topple her.

After Ms May's bungled election, her failure to unite the cabinet and a poor party conference, "the writing is on the wall", he said.

But scores of Tories today came forward to defend the Prime Minister and slam Mr Shapps's coup attempt.

"I think there will be quite a few people who will now be pretty firmly of the view that she should resign", Vaizey told BBC Oxford in an interview on Thursday, when asked whether May should step aside.

Some 52% of the public think Mrs May is a weak leader, while 44% say she is a strong leader.

Jose Mourinho will select Antonio Valencia's games carefully
Although Romelu Lukaku and his teammates' performance is very promising, manager Jose Mourinho did not want to put his guard down. Last year the season started much harder and ended very well, this year it started very well and we don't know how it will end".

"Theresa's main task is to get us out of the European Union with the best deal", said Conservative member of Parliament Bill Wiggin, in an interview.

"I wouldn't buy a used auto from one embittered colleague - let alone take advice from him about who should be PM", he said.

He said he had the support of 30 MPs - including five former Cabinet ministers - and insisted it is time for the PM to go.

Cabinet ministers tried to put a courageous face on the performance.

Nadine Dorries, an ally of Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson, who has been the subject of speculation about a potential leadership bid amid his perceived disloyalty over Brexit in recent weeks, claimed Mr Shapps was part of a group of Remain-backing MPs seeking to reverse the decision to quit the EU.

May was further weakened when she called a snap election that saw the Conservatives reduced to a minority government.

United Kingdom police release report on ex-premier's abuse claims
It is made clear in the report that Heath's account would be as important as other evidence gathered during the investigation. The supposed crimes include raping an 11-year-old boy, assaulting a 10-year-old and molesting a teenage rent boy three times.

The Conservative Party is failing miserably to hide the fractures in its ranks.

But those loyal to the Prime Minister said it was clear that the rebels lacked the 48 MPs they needed to force a contest under the party rules.

Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt said he believed Mrs May's speech showed a "great sense of duty", adding she "did really well" to cope with a persistent cough and a prankster waving a P45 unemployment notice in her face.

Scottish Conservative leader Ruth Davidson, wrote on Twitter that she had "huge respect" for May's performance despite the difficulties.

A Tory spokesman said: "The Prime Minister has got a conference cold a little early".
