Theresa May’s position is precarious amidst Brexit backlash

After the long Easter break, the UK parliament was set in motion and how! Current Prime Minister, Theresa May was urged to announce her resignation. MPs believe that the only way to avoid the Brexit impasse is by having a new leadership from the conservative party.

Mrs. May’s position was put in a perilous state with Eurosceptics manipulating to oust her.  May faced the pressure of securing her upper hand in the office when she was unable to proclaim any progress in talks with the EU, less than 48 hours before her House of Commons vote on the deal. She will maintain her dispute with the Eurosceptics if there is any more delay in leaving the EU. In order to secure her position, May needs work up the ante in the coming weeks, by gaining votes from about 100 Tory and Democratic Unionist party.

Reports allege, that a lot of MPs are desperate for a change of scenery. They are “cross and impatient”, with 70 members of Conservative Associations declaring ‘no confidence’ in the Prime Minister and a possible 40 percent of Conservative councilors likely to support Nigel Farage’s Brexit Party in the European elections.

The declaration of May’s resignation has turned to a tumult, with many conservative MPs being of the opinion that she should retire much sooner than later. Reports suggest, their reluctance to even wait until December, a year after the previous attempt to oust her. Although May’s loyalists argue that a change in the leader is hardly going to improve the situation, since the problem is arising from Brexit and not the malfunction of a leader, a new leadership won’t cut the deal over Brexit.
