ANDREA'S THREE-YEAR WAIT FOR REVENGE

COMMONS Leader Andrea Leadsom was Theresa May's rival for the Tory leadership – and her stinging resignation letter was here revenge served three years later. [19659053] Mrs Leadsom quit last night with a devastating attack on the Prime Minister's latest Brexit climbdown and her act of Cabinet tensions.

But it was just the boiling of the simmering antagonism between the pair. banker and married mum of three, had been a prominent Leave supporter in the referendum campaign. She stood against Remain-backing Mrs. May after David Cameron resigned as PM in 2016.

Ms Leadsom gave a disastrous interview in which she appeared to suggest she was a better choice for PM because she had children

She said this meant she had a "stake in the future" by contrast with Mrs May who have children for health reasons.

Mrs Leadsom, 56, told a newspaper back then that Mrs May only had "nieces, nephews", adding: "But I have children who are going to have children who will directly be part of what happens next."

She withdrew from the contest soon after the controversy and so cleared the path for Mrs May to enter Downing Street

The new Prime Minister appointed Mrs Leadsom as her Environment Secretary only to demo here at Commons Leader in a reshuffle after the disastrous 2017 General Election.

Then last summer it emerged Mrs Leadsom had attacked Mrs M ay's doomed Checkers plan – counting colleagues how she hated it for breaching Government red lines on Brexit

Afterwards Mrs Leadsom did not quit the Cabinet but is believed to have been unpopular in No 10 for her hardline stance. Last month she made more waves of claiming that no deal would be nearly as ugly as many would advocate.

Mrs Leadsom has also repeatedly clashed with Commons Speaker John Bercow. Last year she confronted him with claims he called her "stupid woman"

But, as Commons Leader, Mrs. Leadsom has also been central in tackling the "Pestminster" culture of sexual harassment and bullying.

In 2017, Defense Secretary Sir Michael Fallon was forced to quit after accusing him of making comments to her.

Seven other Cabinet ministers also told No10 they won't back Mrs. May's high stakes final Brexit gamble – a clear signal for her to step down.

In the event of a new Tory leadership contest, forms Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson would be a front runner. But allies said Mrs Leads is considering whether to mount a new Tory leadership challenge to succeed Mrs May.

It would be her second tilt at the top job following her controversial bid in 2016 when she was forced to withdraw after appearing to suggest she was a better choice for the PM because she had children.

In her resignation letter, Mrs Leadsom said the PM's plans would fail to deliver on the referendum result.

She acknowledged that leaving on the eve of today's European elections were damaging but she insisted that she was "fundamentally opposed" to the Withdrawal Agreement Bill, which she was due to unveil to MPs today.

Theresa May's letter to Andrea Leadsom

Hinting that the PM had been to the Cabinet after her second referendum plan passed without their say-so, she wrote: "There has been such a breakdown of Government processes that recently Brexit-related legislative proposals have not been properly scrutinized or approved by Cabinet. ”

And in a call for Mrs May to stand down in the national interest, Mrs Leadsom finished here later by saying:“ I fully respect the integrity, resolution and determination that you have shown during your time as Prime Minister.

“No one has wanted you to succeed more than I have, but I now have to make the right decisions in the interests of the count ry, this Government and our party. ”

Senior No10 staff were given no warning about Mrs Leadsom's departure, and she rang the PM to inform her of the decision only 30 minutes before making it public shortly before 8pm last night. Downing only issued a response, with a spokesman saying Mrs Leadsom had served "with distinction and great ability."

Mrs May said she was "sorry" Mrs Leadsom was off, praising her "passion, drive and sincerity".

THE SUN SAYS

THOSE WHO PRESENTED Theresa would be a poor Prime Minister have regrettably been vindicated.

A fairness, her task has been more than any predecessor's since Winston Churchill. It became all but impossible after she became her majority in 2017.

Just as, Mrs May and here woeful Cabinet of mainly third-rate friends have failed on Brexit and the social justice mission she initially championed. Andrea Leadsom cannot be a part of it any longer

All PMs for a "legacy". It may be the only reason Mrs May has clung on so long.

And though she will leave office with none to speak of, she can at least retain her dignity in defeat.

Sir Graham Brady – the chair of the 1922 Committee – has given Mrs May a 48-ho ur deadline to leave No10 with her 'dignity' intact

She said she was "grateful for the support given over the last three years" in working to deliver Brexit.

But the PM said she believed Mrs Leadsom was wrong to argue that the deal negotiated with the EU "will not become a sovereign country."

A further sign of the PM's support slipping away, eight junior ministers led by Nadhim Zahawi pleaded for meeting with her after deciding they

Mr. Zahawi told The Sun: "We decided we had to act.

Mr. Zahawi told The Sun:" We decided we had to act. ] “It's a matter of credibility now. We've been arguing all along that a second referendum would lead to more uncertainty and division. We just cannot offer one. ”

MORE 'DIVISION AND DEADLOCK'

In a statement after the 1922 Committee meeting, Sir Graham said he would meet the PM tomorrow and then consult with the 1922 executive. Tory MPs were told of tomorrow's meeting last night.

It came amid a rebellion of Tory MPs to Mrs. May's "new" Brexit deal, which she outlined on Tuesday.

The number opposed to the deal has more than doubled since the speech, which promised MPs a vote on a second referendum and customs union.

Crucially means Ms May must now win over more than 70 Labor MPs to have any chance of getting here deal through the Commons.

The PM even lost several loyal Tory MPs who have voted for the deal on all three previous occasions – including Martin Vickers, Robert Halfon and Geoffrey Clifton-Brown. Thoughts of MPs coming out against the deal, Mrs May pushed ahead with a commons statement pleading with them to support her faltering plans.

She said that another rejection would plunge Britain back into more "division and deadlock". ] And unveiling her deal to the Commons, she insisted the government would make provisions for a second referendum if MPs voted for one.

Furious People's vote backers said the commitment didn't go enough for them to back her Brexit bill

Brexit Secretary Stephen Barclay implored the Government to increase contingency planning

He said a "cliff-edge" exit on October 31 would be "worse" for business than March 29 and warned of pre-Christmas warehousing shortages.

But th e PM stunned Brexiteers in Tuesday's Cabinet by postponing a vote on No Deal until after the half term break.

The PM agreed with MP Richard Graham that Brexit Party chief Nigel Farage's "superficially seductive" line about leaving on WTO terms was dangerous. 19659002] She said the UK's security relationships with the EU27 were "fundamental" to keeping the country safe, yet leaving with no deal would close them off.
