Canterbury Conservatives ‘Overwhelmingly’ Pass Motion of No Confidence in May

After Clwyd West Conservatives passed a motion of no confidence in Theresa May yesterday with 88.8% against May, Guido can reveal a second Conservative Association also passed a motion of no confidence in May yesterday. Canterbury Association Chair Greig Baker emailed local members this morning to inform them that a motion endorsing his position of no confidence in May had been carried “by an overwhelming majority” at a Special General Meeting last night. The Tory grassroots revolt continues to grow…

Separately, Guido can also reveal that local Tory members have been invited to a private reception with May in Bury this evening. One local activist is not impressed and describes it as a “grovelling tour” before the EU elections. Will anyone turn up, or will May have to bury her hopes of rallying support for her foundering leadership?

Quote of the Day

Boris as Hulk…

‘Banner might be bound in manacles, but when provoked he would explode out of them. Hulk always escaped, no matter how tightly bound in he seemed to be – and that is the case for this country. We will come out on October 31 and we will get it done.’
