Theresa May - UK Politics News Headline Today

British Prime Minister Theresa May has told lawmakers in the ruling Conservative party that she will not lead them into the next general election, one Member of Parliament said. Theresa May was speaking ahead of a vote of no confidence in her that is due to begin at 1800 GMT 12 December 2018.

Theresa May is said to have made the announcement as she tried to convince her peers to keep or on as prime minister until after Brexit – ahead of a vote of no confidence in her that is due to begin at 6pm. Conservative deputy chairman James Cleverly told journalists outside the committee room: ‘She said she recognised a lot of colleagues are uncomfortable about her leading us into the next election.

‘But the conversation was about getting Brexit delivered, getting our relationship working with the DUP, and there being no early election.

‘She said clearly this would be a very very bad time to replace a leaders, might give people excuse to delay and revoke Article 60 and the British people would not accept that. ‘She made it clear this was a delay and a distraction and we now need to get on with the job at hand.’ Theresa May refuses to step down for leadership challenge.

Voting is expected to take about two hours, with the result expected around 9pm. This comes after she announced that she will fight the challenge against her leadership ‘with everything I’ve got’ earlier today. Speaking outside No 10, the prime minister said the changing Conservative leader now would ‘put our country’s future at risk and create uncertainty when we can least afford it’ and could lead to Brexit being delayed or prevented.
