The latest from political crisis in Britain


Because all eyes are on Britain at the moment...

The Richie Allen Show - Monday July 9th 2018





Richie is joined by David Vance, the editor of biasedbbc.org They discuss the resignations of Brexit Secretary David Davis and the Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson and what it means for Brexit. 

They also chat about the Orwellian censorship being rolled out by the establishment and what it means for free speech and the alternative media. 

Richie also chats about the trend towards giving politicians their own radio shows (Ed Miliband is presenting for BBC radio this week) and what that means for democracy and media plurality. Plus much more. 
I wonder what the coming hours will bring

BREAKING: THERESA MAY WILL STEP DOWN IF 6 MORE LETTERS OF ‘NO CONFIDENCE’ ARE SUBMITTED

THERESA MAY WILL BE FORCED TO STEP DOWN AND FIGHT A LEADERSHIP CONTEST IF JUST 6 MORE LETTERS OF NO CONFIDENCE ARE SUBMITTED TO THE INFLUENTIAL 1922 COMMITTEE CHAIRMAN.


Just 48 letters need to be submitted to the Chairman of the 1922 Committee for a vote of no confidence and a leadership bid to take place.
On Sunday, ITV’s Robert Peston tweeted: “Sources confirm letter calling for vote of confidence in @theresa_may leadership going in to @Graham_Brady, chair of 1922.

Tory Brexiters very unhappy – accuse PM of traducing those who voted to leave EU.

This appears to be spontaneous, not corralled by ERG [European Research Groupo] & @Jacob_Rees_Mogg.”

Brexiteers who feel betrayed over the government’s stance on the future relationship the UK will have with the EU would almost certainly be the ones who bring down Mrs Mays leadership.

According to Sunday Mirror, Mr Brady, the Chairman of the 1922 Committee needs just 6 more letters to trigger a vote.

Jacob Rees-Mogg has long been favourite to replace Mrs May as Conservative party leader.

It is about time we have a Brexiteer leading the country forward!

Do you think Mrs May should step down and battle a leadership contest? Or is now not the time seeing as we are in he middle of Brexit talks?


Party rules dictate that 48 Tory MPs must sign letters of no confidence before a vote is triggered, but that number has not yet materialised

A former Conservative leader has warned his colleagues that mounting a vote of no confidence in Theresa May would be “extremely foolish and ill-advised.”

Lord Michael Howard’s remarks came as the prime minister clings to office following the resignation of two of her most senior cabinet ministers on Monday in one of the most tumultuous days in Westminster since the general election.

After the departure of David Davis and Boris Johnson from government, other senior ministers rallied around Theresa May amid speculation of a looming vote of no confidence in her leadership.


Theresa May is clinging on to power following the dramatic resignation of Boris Johnson and a bruising 24 hours of conflict with Tory Brexiteers.

Mr Johnson became the third minister to quit in the space of a day, accusing Ms May of pursuing a Brexit that would lock Britain into “the status of colony”.

In a scathing letter, he said her plans for negotiating with Europe decided at Chequers last week equated to going into battle with “white flags fluttering”.

But despite the resignations and the looming threat of a “vote of no confidence”, Ms May survived the day and finished it with a swipe at Mr Johnson, in which she appeared to question his motives for quitting
