Theresa May to face first grassroots vote to oust a PM in the history of the Conservative Party

Theresa May will become the first Conservative leader in the party’s history to face a grassroots vote to oust her after rank and file activists forced an Emergency General Meeting to discuss the party’s leadership.

The Prime Minister is set to be hauled in front of a meeting of 800 constituency chairmen and senior activists in June, who will decide whether to demand her resignation for failing to deliver Brexit.

Although the vote will not be binding, losing it would be Mrs May’s deepest humiliation yet, The Mirror has reported.

A total of 70 constituency chairmen have now signed the petition to demand an EGM for a vote on Mrs May’s leadership – passing the 10 per cent threshold of 65 of them.

The news was delivered to Mrs May by the head of the Tories’ voluntary wing, Andrew Sharpe, who saw the PM in person in No10 yesterday afternoon.

The petition reads: “We no longer feel that Mrs May is the right person to continue as Prime Minister to lead us forward in the negotiations.

“We therefore with great reluctance ask that she considers her position and resigns, to allow the Conservative Party to choose another leader, and the Country to move forward and negotiate our exit from the EU.”

Tory bosses must give a minimum of 28 days notice to hold the EGM once a venue for it is found, giving it a likely date of early June.

    Wasn’t Margaret Thatcher “ousted out” as well ? Rightfully so. It’s amazing dirty Ex Prime Moron David Scumeron wasn’t “ousted out” before he resigned. The dirty terrorist group known as the Conservatives/Tories are the system/elite. The jollies of the few for the suffering of the majority. How much severe harm do ordinary everday people have to take before they grow balls and fight back with deadly intent? Only need 10% to wake up and fight and 80% of the system and their families would be eradicated within two days.

    Not binding says it all. She will swan on imperious to any impediments in her path. In the total history of thisd country no politician comes close to May’s fireproof position. Like the Pied Piper she leads the rats anywhere she wants.
