Tories follow Vox Political’s lead and call on May to sack Hammond

Philip Hammond just can’t do right – by the country or even by his party [Image: The Sun (I believe).]

Of course the reasons are different, but if Theresa May listens to something other than the voices in her head and actually removes her errant Chancellor – as she intended before the general election – then the job will be done.

This Writer called for Hammond’s removal because of unconstitutional behaviour, asking business chiefs to campaign in the best interests of the Conservative Party when he should have been promising that the Conservative government would act in the best interests of business.

Tory Brexiteers want him ditched because they think he is hindering the process of exiting the European Union.

The reason doesn’t matter. It is in the national interest that Hammond should go.

In any case, he’ll probably be out after the Budget – if he even lasts until then.

Conservative MPs last night demanded Theresa May sack Philip Hammond for dragging his feet over Brexit as part of a reshuffle to reassert her authority.

The Prime Minister yesterday vowed she would not ‘hide from a challenge’ amid speculation she could oust Boris Johnson in a shake-up of her Cabinet after she saw off a botched coup in the wake of her conference speech.

But last night Brexit-supporting MPs urged her instead to remove the Chancellor, who they accused of being overly pessimistic about Britain’s departure from the EU and constraining efforts to relaunch her premiership.
