82% of Tory members want May to resign, according to survey

More Conservative Party members than ever before want Theresa May to announce her resignation as Tory Party Leader.

That’s according to a survey of 1,460 members by ConservativeHome who found 1,201 of those asked now want May to go.

Just 235 (16%) are now against May triggering a leadership election.

It comes as the Wellingborough Conservative Association became the latest to call for May to go, announcing that: “The Executive Council of Wellingborough Conservatives has voted overwhelmingly to write to Mrs. May and say that we have no confidence in her and she should resign now.

“Her deal is not Brexit and in the absence of a reasonable deal we want to leave the EU on WTO terms.”

As May pursues an EU Deal with Jeremy Corbyn, Tory MPs are increasingly focusing on their party post-May.

Conservative Brexiteer David Davis revealed yesterday: “I will be backing Dominic Raab in the forthcoming Conservative leadership contest.

“His unique combination of intellect, determination, decisiveness and courage means he is the best placed candidate to deliver on the opportunities Brexit presents.”

After more than 1,300 Council seat losses and European Elections on the horizon, just how much longer can May cling on for?
