The co-chair of the Conservative Party is afterall the person David Cameron chose to enforce the Tory Party's rules. Both have spoken openly about the importance of transparency within politics.

There are also some within her own party who don't think the Cabinet Minister is doing a particularly good job. I'm sure they would like to see her go.
