The Prime Minister’s authority is shot and her time is up – Ian Lavery

Ian Lavery MP, Labour Party Chair, commenting on Andrea Leadsom’s resignation from the Cabinet, said:

“The Prime Minister’s authority is shot and her time is up.

“While the Tories are ripping themselves apart, our country is in crisis. The government has made a catastrophic mess of the Brexit negotiations, our steel industry is under threat and universal credit is pushing people into poverty.

“For the sake of the country, Theresa May needs to go, and we need an immediate general election.”
