The new Prime Minister will inherit the worst political legacy in living memory – with the very barest of working majorities.

Here’s our best stab at who is voting for whom, and this list will be updated each morning, as the contest continues.
WATCH: “She has failed. We have lost 1300 hardworking councillors…isn’t it time to step aside?”, Jenkyns asks May
“I am sorry we saw so many councillors lose their seats…often for no fault of their own” but “this is not an issue about me,” the Prime Minister replies.
The Labour leader left it to a Tory backbencher to try to defenestrate her.
Hers or Letwins? That’s what the choice is narrowing down to. From the point of view of trust in politics, how MPs vote will now make little difference – if any.
A dedicated band of Conservative pro-Brexit holdouts stands ready to perish rather than let May’s deal pass.
Mostly ERG-aligned Leavers – but roughly ten former Remainers, a core of whom now back a second referendum.
The Brexiteer backbencher argues the EU is “starting to get a reality check now” about the real possibility of inflexibility causing No Deal.
We currently have it at 189 declared for May, versus the 31 publicly opposed, and 93 undeclared.
In all, there are 30 new entries in the whole list, one down on last year and two down on the 2016 record of 33.
“Very tense”, “a sellout” – Inside the Downing Street charm offensive to try to win Conservative activists’ support for Chequers
Conservative Association Chairmen reveal what happened in yesterday’s conversations with the Prime Minister, her Chief of Staff, and the Party Chairman.
The Morley and Outwood MP says that her constituents want the Brexit they voted for – and asks why Downing Street accuses Leavers but not Remainers of “bullying”.
The Prime Minister’s followers today decided to stop concealing their misgivings.
From the politicisation of committees and the near-deification of Corbyn to the absurd ‘fake news’ row over ‘Hatgate’, the parallels are troubling.
A vocal Brexiteer, a vocal critic of the Government’s plans, and two newly-elected MPs (Simon Clarke and Vicky Ford) were unsuccessful in the race.
