If the Tories don’t remove May now they face electoral oblivion

There is nothing more dangerous and self-defeating in politics, as in every other area of life, than the inability to discern the true significance of events, viewing them instead through a prism of self-interest, groupthink and partisanship. That is the problem currently blinding all those in the Westminster bubble.

Where’s Graham Brady? Here’s what the Tory kingmaker has been doing this weekend

He’s the chair of the 1922 Committee, and is in charge of counting the number of letters Tory MPs have written calling for a vote of no-confidence in her leadership.

If that figure reaches 48 (or 15% of the Parliamentary party), he’s expected to visit Number 10 to inform the Prime Minister in person that she’s facing a challenge to her leadership.

So people are understandably interested in his whereabouts.

Frenetic efforts to save Theresa May and her Brexit plan

So far Sir Graham Brady, chair of the backbench 1922 committee who is responsible for declaring that moment, has made no public comment.

It is unclear whether Number 10’s frenetic efforts this weekend are intended to prevent the number of letters getting to 48, or to ensure the prime minister can get the backing of the 150 Tory MPs she would need to win a confidence vote – either way, the fight is on.

The Londoner: MPs in dark over ‘secret’ 1992 rules

(24.10.2018) Theresa May’s invitation to speak to the members of the 1922 Committee at 5pm today has been the centre of fevered speculation. What everyone knows — it has been repeated ad nauseam in recent weeks — is that a vote of no-confidence in the Prime Minister is triggered when 15 per cent of Tory MPs write a letter to the 1922 Committee chairman Sir Graham Brady. Currently it would take 48 letters to be submitted. Brady alone knows how many letters are received — despite endless press reports of it being “close”.
