Tories running scared of general election

Senior Tories warn May against snap election

Conservative MPs are reportedly preparing to block any attempt by Theresa Mayto call a general election in a bid to resolve the Brexit crisis.

The prime minister and some of her closest advisers are believed to be considering a snap poll if her withdrawal agreement is put forward and voted down for a fourth time this week.

Yet senior Conservatives have said that an election would be a disaster, fearing their bitterly divided party would be wiped out at the ballot box.

Some are adamant Ms May should not lead the Tories in any election in the months ahead, with one telling The Sunday Telegraph the party would be “annihilated”.


The only way to ensure that, though, is tactical voting in brexit Tory constituencies.
