Could May be Gone in a Matter of Days?

Just a few days ago we learned that as many as 80 Tory MPs were willing to vote against Chequers in the Commons – and now it seems like Theresa May could be facing a coup within a matter of days. I wouldn’t hold my breath on this one right now – I’ve heard this a few times before – but it’s certainly an interesting development.

Chris Hope, Chief Political Correspondent for The Daily Telegraph, has tweeted that an “informed source” has told him at least 35 letters have been submitted to the chairman of the 1922 Committee, Sir Graham Brady. These letters call for a vote of no confidence against Theresa May – and should another 13 be delivered, that vote will take place.

This has happened before, with the number of letters falling short by just single figures. Maybe this is just a re-run of that.

Tory MP Andrew Bridgen spoke to ITV News after a dinner at Number 10, responding “we’ll have to see” when asked if this was a coup against Theresa. He also insisted that the PM take on board the comments given to her, chuck Chequers, and get on with a Super Canada trade deal.

That could be on the cards, too. Mrs May knows her job is on the line here and the threat of a coup is very real, so the “Plan B” appears to be in consideration right now. No. 10 is said to have two escape options if the European Union rejects her Chequers deal, with a plan to “pivot” away from her soft Brexit plan last minute.

The upcoming EU summit in Salzburg could potentially be make or break for the Chequers deal, so a plan is being formulated to pivot away and get back to business. It’s funny that the PM seems willing to consider cleaner Brexit deals only if her soft Brexit betrayal doesn’t work first, isn’t it?

One option is to simply stall – the Chequers deal will be kept on hold until talks resume following the official Brexit day. The second option is to completely scrap Chequers and go for a Canada style agreement that Bridgen and Rees-Mogg appear to be calling for.

So let’s hope the EU holds out and scraps Chequers for us.

As long as Trudeau steers the good ship Canada, we can expect to see rocks ahead.
Once the public wakes up and tosses Trudeau over the side, that we may see his course, only then can we dodge the rocks.
When we can see a good straight course ahead, then we can think about reeducating the three generations, or so, of people brainwashed by Marxist school teachers.
Oh dear me…..Canada?

gee if only canadians had politicians who actually worked for them and the former canada.
Oh well, a girl can dream.
Meanwhile down the sewer we go while paying and rewarding the collapse of our borders and the resulting invasion and overthrow of us , our land and all which was ours.
Too bad we didn’t have any actual canadians with ball, patriotism and brains!
