THE INDEPENDENT: The scramble to be next Tory leader is a race to be captain of a flailing, battered ship

Press/Media: Expert comment

Release date: 25/5/2019

Description

British politics has been simmering up to this moment for several weeks now. Theresa May’s authority in parliament and the Conservative Party has dwindled and eager leadership hopefuls have been setting out their stall ready for the starting gun to be fired. The question was only ever when, rather than if, the prime minister would go. Perhaps now the reality will set in for potential successors.
