Theresa May is hated by many of her own MPs, a senior DUP figure has claimed as he insisted the Tories “cannot afford” a leadership election.
Sammy Wilson, the party’s Brexit spokesman and one of the 10 Northern Irish MPs propping up the Prime Minister’s minority government, said a lot of Mrs May’s Conservative colleagues “want to undermine her” and are “doing their best to trip her up”.
Near all MPs (the few who don’t being the honourable exceptions) believe they’ve the PM’s gavel in their briefcase. Thus anyone who does make it to No 10 is hated by all those who didn’t but think they should have done. Why the fuck was everyone dim enough to choose her over me?
Been going on since the Earl of Chatham was struggling with how to tie shoelaces.
