“The proposed second reading of the WAB is clearly doomed to failure so there really is no point wasting any more time on the prime minister’s forlorn hope of salvation. She’s got to go,” Andrew Bridgen, a Conservative lawmaker, told Reuters.
“It’s now clear that the overwhelming majority of the parliamentary party, the voluntary party and the electorate now agree. She has to go.”
He is one of many Conservatives to reject the deal, something that has driven other leadership contenders hoping to replace May to also oppose the agreement. Boris Johnson, the bookmakers’ favorite to be Britain’s next prime minister, said he would not vote for it.
