Yes prime minister
Tim Stanley Follow 19 November 2018 • 9:00pm The Conservatives should drop Theresa May as Prime Minister, and not just because of Brexit. Yes, the Withdrawal Agreement is bad and, yes, that’s the immediate cause of backbench rebellion, but the deal is also a symbol of everything that’s gone wrong for two years. Mrs May is a really poor PM. Let’s start with her obsession with detail to the cost of clarity. Last week I was on BBC Question Time with a Government minister, who demanded to know if I’d read the Withdrawal Agreement. Honestly, the answer is no: and I bet she hadn’t either.

REBEL Tories are reportedly getting closer to triggering a no-confidence vote to oust Theresa May. So far, 22 Tory MPs have publicly declared they have submitted no-confidence letters against their beleaguered leader over her draft Brexit deal. But what is the likelihood that Jacob Rees-Mogg could replace her? Could Jacob Rees-Mogg become Prime Minister? Technically, yes, he could, depending on the eventual outcome of a revolt initiated against Theresa May by Brexiteer plotters including Rees-Mogg and Boris Johnson. But, Rees-Mogg has gone on record numerous times rejecting press speculation that he wants to challenge her. He has even suggested alternative Members of Parliament who could potentially succeed her, including Johnson, David Davis, Dominic Raab and Esther McVey as being “very capable of leading a proper Brexit”. How could Theresa May be ousted? May could end up losing her job if 48 (equivalent of 15%) of all 315 Conservative Party MPs submit a letter of … [Read more...] about Could Jacob Rees-Mogg be Prime Minister?

Theresa May is only the second woman to have served as the United Kingdom's prime minister, after Margaret Thatcher. "CBS This Morning" co-host John Dickerson visited May at her official residence at 10 Downing Street in London for her only interview ahead of the U.N. General Assembly this week in New York City. We asked her about the #MeToo movement, as well as the intense fight she faces at home and across the European Union over Brexit. To read Part 1 of Dickerson's interview with May click here. On Brexit: JOHN DICKERSON: You are engaged in trying to manage the U.K. from withdrawing from the European Union, probably the biggest thing that Great Britain has been through since World War II. You had a rebuke from the EU. The British papers, which are a little more peppery than the ones in the States, said that they "twisted the knife." The word "humiliated" was used repeatedly. Did you feel humiliated by the way the EU treated your proposal? THERESA MAY: What I felt yesterday was … [Read more...] about British Prime Minister Theresa May on Brexit, and #MeToo
President Trump and British Prime Minister Theresa May will be among more than 130 world leaders expected for meetings at the United Nations General Assembly this week. May will raise important global issues, including the Iran nuclear deal and the use of chemical weapons by Russia. Britain accuses Russia of poisoning four people in Salisbury, England. "CBS This Morning" co-host John Dickerson visited the prime minister's official residence at 10 Downing Street in London for her only interview ahead of the U.N. General Assembly. May told Dickerson that she trusts Mr. Trump and believes Iran is holding up its end of the nuclear deal. JOHN DICKERSON: When you talk to President Trump, does he listen? THERESA MAY: Yes, we have very good discussions. And these are, I mean, the point of the special relationship between the United Kingdom and the United States in a sense is that we can have those frank and open discussions. And when we disagree, we will – we can say to each other we … [Read more...] about British Prime Minister Theresa May says she trusts President Trump
