Theresa May is facing a potential leadership challenge within days after 50 Tory MPs met on Tuesday night to discuss how to get rid of her.
Brexiteers plotted to force a no-confidence vote in the Prime Minister, which could come before the Conservative Party conference at the end of this month.
Leave supporters are so determined to kill off Mrs May’s controversial Chequers plan for Brexit that they are now prepared to oust her if she refuses to change tack.
One MP who was at the meeting said: “If she won’t chuck Chequers then I’m afraid the Party will chuck her.”
