How Long Can Theresa May Hang On? Even The Conservative Party Isn't Sureby

No matter where you stand on the political spectrum – whether you’re left wing, right wing, agree or disagree with Brexit – or if you love or hate Jeremy Corbyn – it can hardly be denied that 2017 has been a fairly disastrous year for British Prime Minister Theresa May. Inheriting Brexit and the British government last year after the departure of David Cameron from the Conservative Party, May has this year been under pressure from not just the opposing Labour Party, but also the electorate and her own party. Her snap election announced earlier this year was designed to help cement her majority in the UK – and it resulted in the Conservatives losing their existing hold over the country. As a result, May had to make a hasty and rather infamous £1 billion deal with the controversial DUP in order to stay afloat – as the once shaky-looking Corbyn, for Labour, made gains for his party and finally seemed to unite trust in his ability – at least, in the face of what was emerging to be poor leadership on behalf of Ms May.

Speculation over May’s future within the party has been rife since that fateful election results day – and while she has struggled to keep an even keel since, she has vowed to be the Prime Minister who will oversee Brexit in 2019. However, a recent appearance at the annual Conservative Party Conference was riddled with disasters. Not only was May’s speech brought down in spurts of coughing, but a sign behind her fell to pieces as time wore on – and she was even intercepted by infamous TV prankster Simon Brodkin, wielding a P45 (notice of dismissal) with her name on it – stating that Boris Johnson had authorized it. As a result, rumblings within the party to potentially overthrow May have once again grown very loud indeed.

While a fair number of Tory MPs have publicly continued to support May, many more have publicly advised that they believe her role as PM to be untenable – with the public largely agreeing on the leader being a ‘weak’ choice for PM. With controversial Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson having previously refused to run for leader, some allege now may be his time to pounce – though high profile MPs Jacob Rees-Mogg and David Davis (Brexit Minister) have been mooted by those speculating on May’s future.

Will October be the end of May? Give the Prime Minister this – she has held on for far longer than many thought she would – but it may be time for the Conservative Party to consider their future rather sharpish.
