40 MPs are ready to sign a letter expressing lack of confidence against May

Vastavam web:  British Prime Minister Theresa May was facing fresh turmoil as it emerged today that as many as 40 of her own party MPs are ready to sign a letter expressing a lack of confidence in her leadership.Conservative party MPs are now just eight short of the required number of 48 to force a leadership challenge as May struggles to steady her government following two high- profile resignations, ‘The Sunday Times’ reported.Her resignation came days after Michael Fallon had been forced to quit as Defence Secretary amid allegations of sexual misconduct.
Two of May’s other senior Cabinet minister, Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson and First Secretary of State Damian Green, continue to battle demands that they step down.The Opposition and her own party MPs believe that the British Prime Minister’s failure to take firm action against them reflects her weakness as a leader and it is time for her to quit Downing Street.The embattled leader also faces mounting pressure from the European Union (EU) over Brexit negotiations, after Brussels issued an ultimatum that Britain must agree on its divorce bill payments with the economic bloc within weeks or face the prospect of no future trade deal with the EU once it is no longer a member.One of Labour’s key demands is that “parliament, and not ministers, has the final say on whether to approve the withdrawal agreement and how best to implement it”.
He demanded that May should “govern or go” because she is now showing “every sign of being in office but not in power”.Corbyn also indicated that sacking Boris Johnson would be a sign of some strength as he had become a liability.”We have put up with Johnson embarrassing and undermining our country with his incompetence and colonial throwback views and putting our citizens at risk for long enough. It’s time for him to go,” he said.Richard Radcliffe has been arguing his wife’s innocence and campaigning for the UK Foreign Office to secure her release.
