THE MAYBOT STRIKES BACK: Embattled PM Rallies As Raab Backs May
The coup against Theresa May, that one of the principal insitgators in Jacob Rees-Mogg describes as “not a coup”, looked to be losing momentum today.
Dominic Raab, the former Brexit Secretary, told Andrew Marr that despite the fact Theresa May was allowing the EU to “bully” Britain he still backed Mrs May.
Speculation still swirls around the number of letters of no confidence that Sir Graham Brady has actually received. This is undoubtedly part of the dissipation of the energy of the push by Tory rebels to unseat Mrs May.
However, Jacob Rees-Mogg is still the most senior figure to submit a letter and publicly argue the case for leader while senior figures who could rally more backbenchers such as David Davis and Boris Johnson appear to be keeping their powder dry.
Tory rebels also are doing little to counter Mrs May’s very own Project Fear. For example, not one has stated the plain truth that a General Election will only happen if Conservative MPs vote for it under the conditions imposed by the Fixed Term Parliaments Act. This is doubly true as the DUP are unlikely to back a move that could lead to a Labour Government.
In short, Tory rebels are making a complete hash brown of their attempts to remove the Prime Minister from office and in so doing potentially fatally damaging Brexit.
