May and Corbyn both face potential coups

Theresa May has been under attack recently, as a coup is threatening to tear the Conservative Party apart. Boris Johnson, who denies the allegations, is apparently set to challenge May for the party’s leadership by igniting a debate on May’s Brexit plans, which could trigger another leadership election, should there be a vote of no confidence by enough MP’s or for Theresa May’s version of Brexit to fail. 

This comes after Conservative party members relaying this information to the press, have also expressed their concern for the PM, saying if the Chequers plan was to fail, Brexit negotiations will massively suffer and according to one MP, ‘there’s no way she’ll survive’ such an attack.

Boris Johnson’s tactics come as no surprise to the party members, due to the ‘election guru’ by his side, Sir Lynton Crosby. Renowned for his political strategy in Canada, and now working as Johnson’s right-hand man, employing tactics which cumulate to Johnson’s name appearing more frequently in the press, such as the Burka comments.

Meanwhile, in the Labour Party, where reportedly, up to 15 MP’s are preparing for a vote of ‘No Confidence’ in Jeremy Corbyn, leader of the Labour Party. 

After continued rows over Anti-Semitism within the Labour Party, some MP’s are said to have had enough with Corbyn’s leadership.

The Labour party’s governing body will meet on Tuesday to discuss further action on the Anti-Semitism debate, but some have little hope that this meeting will bridge the wedge currently dividing the governmental party.
