Last month, 71 per cent of our Party member panel respondents wanted Theresa May to announce her resignation as Party leader and thus trigger a leadership election. That was a record low.

Later in April, that figure hit 79 per cent. Another record.

And this month, the Prime Minister duly hits a record low for the third time running.  82 per cent want her gone and that leadership election now.

This is a snap survey in the aftermath of the worst Conservative local election results in over 20 years.

So the result is perhaps not surprising, given the atrocious Tory performance last Thursday and the meltdown in member support for May’s Brexit policy.

But we hope none the less that Conservative MPs note it and act on it.
