Theresa May’s cabinet is the most ill-disciplined in British political history, according to chief whip Julian Smith. What does he expect?

So many Conservative MPs have resigned from her government – and so many are emphatically opposed to her current direction on Brexit – that she can no longer fill all the vacancies in government ministerial posts.

She cannot threaten her ministers with the sack, so they have no reason to kowtow to her; they can say and do whatever they like and she’ll have to bribe them if she wants them to support her.

Or she can threaten them with a claim that their misbehaviour is splitting the Conservative Party.

Current indications show that neither option is working.

The chief whip, Julian Smith, has said the cabinet is the “worst example” of cabinet ill-discipline in British political history.
