PM Theresa May set to go to war with the Queen

    Theresa May faces a showdown with the Queen – over scrapping ¬seven of Her Majesty’s royal charters.

Sacked ministers warn Theresa May

    Theresa May has been warned by sacked ministers that she must promote them back into Government within a year or face “trouble” in Parliament.

Some are ready to increasingly rebel over Mrs May’s grammar schools ban and Brexit priorities unless they are put back on the Government payroll soon. The ultimatum, made in conversations with The Sunday Telegraph, is designed to make sure Mrs May makes good on indications there is a route back to the Government for those who behave. “We have said we will be unflinchingly loyal for one year. But if they keep us on the back benches for longer we will start causing trouble,” ...
