Tory MP Peter Bone shocked Theresa May and the House of Commons when he pulled out a letter signed by loyal Conservative activists with demands of the Prime Minister. Mr Bone explained that these Conservatives considered Mrs May’s deal worse than remaining in the EU and wanted her to resign before the European elections next week. The Leave supporting MP said: “For more than 20 years I have worked with an incredible group of Conservatives in Wellingborough Rushden.
“They raise money for the party, they deliver leaflets and they knock on doors week in week out.
“This Saturday some 40 of us went out campaigning for the European elections but unfortunately I have a letter from those Conservatives addressed to the Prime Minister.
“They say that her deal is worse than staying in the European Union.
“That they want us to go come out now on a no deal basis.
“More importantly they have lost confidence in the Prime Minister and wish her to resign before the European elections.
“Prime Minister what do you have to say to these dedicated and loyal Conservatives.”
Theresa May began her response by thanking Conservatives who campaign for the party and show support on a regular basis.
She added: “I would say to Conservatives up and down the country who are concerned about delivering Brexit.
“This is a government that wants to deliver Brexit and has been working to do that.”
“So far the House of Commons has not found a majority to do that but if everyone voted with the government we have already left the EU.
Pressure continues to rise against Mrs May to resign earlier than she initially said despite her current talks with Labour to deliver Brexit.
Last night Tuesday Theresa May announced that she would be bringing forward legislation in order to put a Brexit deal to Parliament for a fourth time on the week beginning June 3.
Number 10 has stated the cross-party talks between Mrs May and Mr Corbyn were “useful and constructive” but stopped short in confirming if Labour would back the deal or if any changes had been made to the bill agreed with Brussels.
