DISGRUNTLED Tory MPs are plotting to remove Theresa May from Downing Street as early as Christmas, it has been revealed. Party members are believed to still be furious

following the result of the Prime Minister’s snap election, which saw her lose the hard fought majority held by David Cameron.A former cabinet minister said: “The rider is

plonked on top of the horse at the moment, the reins are loose, it’s galloping off and there’s no control.“We need someone who can grab control, ride the horse and address

the two fundamental issues we face: Corbyn and Brexit.”One former minister claimed it was “absolutely crazy” for Mrs May to have held onto her job after “having created this

balls up”. Party insiders, still fuming from the results of the general election, are expected to collude over the summer recess before asking Mrs May to offer a date for her resignation.A prominent critic from inside the party said there was “no doubt conversations will carry on” over the parliamentary break.They added: “Everybody’s pretty tired at the moment.“But once they’ve been away for a few days they’ll buck up and continue talking.” The growing number of dissenting party members are expected to confront the Prime Minister directly, using majority rule to force her to step away from power.One said: “The way that would need to happen is for colleagues to go to the Prime Minister and say ‘there are enough of us here that effectively mean you need to say something about your future.”Another added: “A group of people would go to see her and suggest maybe she had served the party to the full extent that was practical.“They would say ‘given where we are, would it be better to hand over the burden?’” While a leadership challenge could harm Britain’s prospects during Brexit negotiations, some insiders are even expecting to have a date set in stone by the end of the year, pushing to “get it all done and dusted by Christmas”.It comes amid claims 30 MPs are throwing support behind David Davis to lead the party after the end of Mrs May’s tenure.The Brexit minister has garnered support from party Eurosceptics as he leads negotiations with his EU counterpart Michel Barnier.One well placed Conservative MP said: “He has a lot of people saying ‘you are the guy who can deliver on Brexit and deliver on Corbyn’”..
