Tory donors throw weight behind May ahead of confidence vote

Theresa May could soon be ousted from her position as Tory leader and prime minister as she will be subject to a Conservative party vote of confidence tonight.

Under party rules, if 15 per cent of Tory members of parliament write to the chairman of the backbench 1922 committee expressing no confidence in their party leader then a ballot is triggered.

There needed to be 48 MPs calling for her to go, out of 315 Conservative MPs, to trigger a confidence vote and this threshold was reached on Tuesday.

Front pages of the national newspapers after Theresa May survives a vote of no confidence. "I think they're trying to square the circle here", the expert was heard.

Burton and Uttoxeter MP Mr Griffiths said he was backing the Prime Minister.

The result, which was read out to applause in Committee Room 14 of the Houses of Parliament shortly after 9pm last night, means she can not face a Tory leadership contest for another 12 months.

But their support is not tied to Mrs May personally and they would not back her if she sought to press ahead with her deal.

He added: 'Now we must get on with the job of delivering a successful Brexit and our domestic priorities including a strong economy.

"In all constitutional normality she ought to stand down because she can not get her business through parliament", he said. "Therefore they don't need to worry about for her being around much longer".

She promised them that she would not stay on to lead the party into the 2022 General Election - sparking accusations that she has become a "lame duck" PM.

Fleming says the latest offer being floated by European leaders "is part of a two-stage reassurance process that will start at the December summit and could continue into January".

European leaders this week committed to helping Prime Minister May get the Brexit deal ratified in the United Kingdom parliament by offering assurances that the triggering of the backstop clause is not a preferred outcome.

"Parliament voted for a meaningful vote; we should be having the vote and it should be happening next week", Mr Blackford said.

Fareham MP Suella Braverman resigned last month from the Department of Exiting the European Union stating she could not support the deal that was agreed by the Cabinet but made no public indication regarding yesterday's vote.

"I am getting strong sense Theresa May will fail to get from European Union leaders the "legal" bit of the assurances she needs to get her European Union plan approved by DUP and Brexiter Tories - ie no addendum or codicil to Withdrawal Agreement".

Sir Graham is obliged to call a vote if 15 per cent of Tory MPs write to him calling for one - now 48 MPs.

Fiona Cincotta, senior market analyst at City Index, said earlier today: 'Currency markets were surprisingly buoyant in the wake of the no-confidence vote against Theresa May announced this morning, increasingly betting that the prime minister may be able to withstand the political pressure from her party and remain the leader of her party'.

And, according to MPs present at the meeting, she also promised to find a "legally binding solution" to ensuring that the United Kingdom does not get permanently trapped in a backstop arrangement to keep the Irish border open after Brexit.
