David Cameron could face no confidence vote – Mirror Online

David Cameron could face a vote of no confidence if the Tories crash to a heavy defeat in Thursday’s by-election, according to the Mirror.

Rattled backbench MPs are ready to trigger a leadership ­challenge if UKIP win Rochester and Strood in Kent by a big margin, party sources said.

The expected victory by ex Tory Mark Reckless could prompt more right-wingers to defect to Nigel Farage’s party, ­leading to a crisis. The PM admitted at the G20 summit in Australia that it would be a “sort of notch for them”.

He is preparing a major speech on the EU and immigration to try to recover from his likely loss.

Top Tories believe the only way to confront UKIP is to be tougher on immigration and EU reform, including threatening to leave.

Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond said: “We’re in the beginning stages of a negotiation and – first of all – never, never go into any negotiation unless you’re prepared to stand up from the table and walk away.”

A senior Tory claimed the PM could face the no confidence vote if he mishandles his party after the by-election. They said: “I know a number of colleagues who would ­seriously think about going for it.

“He is going to have to put together one hell of a meeting of the party and frankly apologise.”

This is interesting because only yesterday (Saturday), on Any Questions, panellists were saying it is far too late for Labour to ditch Ed Miliband and elect a new leader. Now it seems entirely likely that this is exactly what will happen to the Conservatives.

Ed must be laughing fit to burst; it seems doubtful that David Cameron will see the funny side.

    Lets hope it happens at least it would be one less corrupt liar, I pray for this to happen albeit total chaos for the next five months, but could not be any worse than the last four and half years. Wonder what he will do with all his dinner suits certainly wont go to charity it’s a word outside his vocabulary.

    Just read an article, the tax payer has funded £383,500.00 since 2010 for his children’s nursery fees what an absolute disgrace.

    He and his ilk should be brought to justice no one should get away from what they have done to the citizens of this country.

    Apart from his rich friends I do not know of anybody that has not been affected by their sordid policies.

    Bring on the election !!

      Only if those creatures have the time to pull their party together before the election, and this seems unlikely.
      Also the period of chaos in the interim will be a joy to behold as Tories generally try to rip their colleagues’ throats out – figuratively, if not actually.

    Half of me wants this to happen just so I can gloat and see Cameron get his comeuppance. The other half worries the filth will replace him with someone more palatable to the public. Then again, that bumptious little w****r Gove is said to want the job, in which case, Mr Gove, have at it and see you in May, you ridiculous, clueless, incompetent little b*****d.
