  • Brexit: Theresa May's approval ratings with Tory members hit record low, survey suggests - live news
    by Andrew Sparrow on April 24, 2019 at 9:06 am

    Rolling coverage of the day’s political developments as they happen, including PMQs 10.06am BST Antoinette Sandbach, a Conservative pro-European and a member of the executive of the backbench 1922 Committee, was on Sky’s All Out Politics this morning. She refused to comment in detail on what happened at the executive’s meeting yesterday, where MPs discussed calls for the party’s rules to be changed to allow an early no confidence vote in Theresa May (under the current rules May is safe until December, 12 months after the last one), but she did suggest that advance briefing to the effect that the 1922 executive would definitely agree to change the rules was wrong. Instead members were “sent away to go away and think on things”, she said, effectively admitting that yesterday’s talks were inconclusive. There would be a further discussion when the executive met later today. “I’m sure that matters will become clearer later,” she said.I would say to colleagues that when the no confidence vote was triggered in December, you knew what the rules were, you chose to trigger the vote, and I think you have to live with the result. 9.55am BST Speaking on the Today programme this morning, the Sinn Fein leader Mary Lou McDonald condemned the New IRA, who have admitted responsibility for the killing of Lyra McKee, “unreservedly”. McDonald went on:The war in Ireland is over, the conflict is over, the IRA arms have been destroyed or put beyond use. We have a new democratic dispensation and it is so important we make that work, that institutions of government work ...[The New IRA] are a tiny, unrepresentative group that have no plan, that have no strategy. If their alibi [for the killing of journalist McKee] is they are seeking to advance the cause of republicanism, they are very far off the mark. Continue reading... […]
