Just as an example: The tweet via which I received this story stated, “RT if you don’t want May to stay!”

At time of writing there have been 4,500 ReTweets, at least.

Draw your own conclusions.

Theresa May has dismissed criticism of her vow to fight the next general election, insisting that voters want her to stay.

The prime minister said yesterday during her visit to Japan: ‘Most members of the public would say they want the government to get on with the job and that’s exactly what I and the government are doing.’

But Tory critics said it would be difficult for her to continue after the election this year which saw her lose her majority.

Former party chairman Grant Shapps told BBC Radio 4’s Today programme it was ‘too early’ for Mrs May to talk about going ‘on and on’.

He added there was no appetite for a leadership election ‘right at this moment’. But he said it was ‘probably the case’ that the Tories did not want the prime minister to face Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn at the ballot box again.
