More than 70 local association chiefs - angry at her handling of Brexit - have called for an extraordinary general meeting to discuss her leadership. A non-binding vote will be held at that National Conservative Convention EGM. Dinah Glover, chairwoman of the London East Area Conservatives, said there was "despair in the party". She told the BBC: "I'm afraid the prime minister is conducting negotiations in such a way that the party does not approve." The Conservative Party's 800 highest-ranking officers, including those chairing the local associations, will take part in the vote
"We therefore, with great reluctance, ask that she considers her position and resigns, to allow the Conservative Party to choose another leader, and the country to move forward and negotiate our exit from the EU." It is believed to be the first time the procedure has been used.

I’ve been saying this for a couple of years.
She’s not as dumb as she makes out. The Tories want to stop brexit, but if they betray the referendum vote they lose many of their Tory voters.
So they need plausible deniability; to be seen to have done their ‘best’, or rather that May, the sacrificial lamb to have done her best, before ultimately, years down the road brexit is undone.
She takes one for the the team. She quits and a new leader takes over in time for next election saying that May screwed it up but don’t worry, she’s gone now. The Torres are rebranded.
The ‘fiasco’ has been an inside job from the get go.
