Tory rebels have gathered enough support to call a vote of no-confidence against Theresa May, in the hopes to oust her as Prime Minister.
This morning, chairman of the 1922 committee Graham Brady announced they reached the threshold of 48 letters of no-confidence against Theresa May, thus triggering a leadership contest.
The Prime Minister responded with a powerful statement which sent one message: she won't back down.
Speaking outside 10 Downing Street, she said she would tackle the no-confidence vote “with everything I’ve got”.
"A change in leadership in the Conservative Party now will put our country's future at risk and create uncertainty when we can least afford it.”
