The British Prime minister suffered a huge blow as the “snap election” Thursday backfired which took of the majority the Conservative Party had in the parliament.
this had lead to the resignation of May’s co-chiefs of staff, Nick Timothy and Fiona Hill. Timothy conceded in a statement that he had failed to carry out an effective election campaign, while Hill made no mention of her performance.
There are MPs within the conservative party who are calling for May’s resignation and slamming her style of governance as tone deaf to her own Cabinet ministers and MPs.
Several MPs have said they were angered by key points in the Conservatives’ manifesto, the document that outlined the party’s agenda.
May is trying hard to bring in a credible government while fighting a mutiny with in her own party.
It is noted that the party’s commanding lead in the polls of 20 percentage points at the start of the election period dramatically narrowed after the launch of the Conservatives’ manifesto.
