Multiple parliamentary sources are reporting that the confidence vote in Theresa May has been triggered. The SKWAWKBOX yesterday published claims by several Tory MPs that the ‘1922 Committee’ had received ‘far more’ than the required forty-eight letters to trigger a contest but was holding back confirmation.
The news comes amid strong rumours that the DUP has issued an ultimatum that it will not support the government’s Brexit deal if May remains as leader.
Insiders believe she is likely to survive the vote, but even further diminished in stature.
