Conservative MPs are split between wanting Thereas May to sack Boris Johnson or Philip Hammond [Image: Dominic Lipinski/PA].

There are plenty of would-be cabinet stars churning around the Parliamentary Conservative Party who would love to replace Boris Johnson or Philip Hammond – or at least take other cabinet places in a reshuffle.

But Theresa May is too scared to act.

Isn’t it the truth that she doesn’t move anybody new into prominent positions because the public would then see exactly how talentless and clueless modern Tories really are – especially the younger generation?

Conservative MPs are split between Brexiters who want Philip Hammond sacked and remainers who would like to see Boris Johnson out of a job, but believe the prime minister may be too weak to get rid of either of them in a reshuffle in the coming weeks.

In conversations with dozens of Tories, the Guardian found MPs divided along their views on the EU referendum over whether they would like to see Johnson or Hammond given the boot.

Theresa May has hinted she could conduct a reshuffle after her trip to Brussels at the end of next week, as she comes under pressure from new MPs in her party to bring fresh talent into the cabinet after a moribund Conservative party conference.

Since then, a handful of remainers, including Anna Soubry and Nicky Morgan, have called for Johnson to lose his job over his interventions setting out his own personal blueprint for an optimistic Brexit. On the other side, leavers including Nigel Lawson and Nadine Dorries have urged May to get rid of the chancellor for being too gloomy.
