The Dagenham and Rainham Conservative Association have written to their Party Chairman calling for Theresa May to go.
Sending an email yesterday, Chairman Terry Justice and Deputy Chairman Peter Harris made clear that they want a new Party Leader.
Writing to Brandon Lewis, they make clear: “Mrs. May is surrounded with those who oppose the will of the majority of voters. She must be replaced now while there is still time for her successor to reassess the UK’s position.”
They describe dissatisfaction being shown with May’s performance as becoming “a threat to the future of our party”
Peter Harris, Deputy Chairman of the Association, told Westmonster: “I am starting a campaign to get support from other branches and grassroots members to stand up and call for her head to stop this betrayal!”
How many other Conservative Associations feel the same way?
We write to you on behalf of the Dagenham and Rainham Conservative Association.
The dissatisfaction currently being shown with the performance of Theresa May and her cabinet regarding the so-called negotiations for Brexit has reached such proportions as to become a threat to the future of our party. She has remorselessly and progressively weakened our position in her negotiations with the EU and is increasingly ignoring the wishes of more than 17.4 million voters, making a mockery of democracy. There is every indication that if she is allowed to remain in office we will be left in an associated membership of the EU when we will have no rights of negotiation at all. Should this be allowed to happen, it will probably result in the destruction of our party and you will have noted that there are already indications of a lack of trust in us.
Her recent articles in the national press in which she says “we should unite as one nation to achieve agreement with the EU” spells it out quite adequately. The EU does not want us to leave, so will never agree to us so doing.
Mrs. May is surrounded with those who oppose the will of the majority of voters. She must be replaced now while there is still time for her successor to reassess the UK’s position.
