On her way: She’s managed to dodge the bullet for nearly two years, but is she about to resign at long, long last – putting US out of her misery?

It’s looking bad for Theresa May. She may be ousted on the eve of the European Parliament elections she promised we wouldn’t have to hold.

After the disaster that was the introduction of her third (and final?) attempt to get an EU Withdrawal Bill passed by Parliament, it seems she may be facing a full-scale Cabinet revolt and demands for her resignation.

Apparently Sajid Javid, Jeremy Hunt and David Mundell (he’s Secretary of State for Scotland, by the way) have all requested meetings with Mrs May, but have all been rebuffed.

It seems Penny Mordaunt is also saying she can’t support the new Withdrawal Bill. Reporters are saying it’s an indirect way of telling Mrs May to go, while being able to say that they never overtly demanded it.

The sticking-point seems to be the promise related to another referendum.

Meanwhile the Tory backbench 1922 committee is meeting with the Chief Whip, Julian Smith – to discuss rule changes that will allow an immediate vote of “no confidence” in Mrs May’s leadership.

Tory MPs are openly telling the broadcast media that she has to go – and not the usual suspects, either. Here’s Tom Tugendhat:

And here’s Tim Loughton:

Former Work and Pensions Secretary Stephen Crabb has also said she should resign as soon as possible.

We are told there will be no statement from 10 Downing Street this evening.

Judging from past form, that means there will be a statement from 10 Downing Street this evening.

It’s all very disappointing for This Writer.

For once, I don’t have any popcorn in the house.
