If true, it would be a pivotal moment for those angry Tory MPs unhappy at the Brexit draft withdrawal agreement. 

A total of 48 letters from Conservative MPs need to be issued to trigger a vote of no confidence. Such a move could spark a leadership challenge.

In response, May’s spokesperson stated that she would contest any leadership challenge.

In parliament, a stony-faced Rees-Mogg told May during that what she says and what she does “no longer match,” and openly threatened to submit the letter of no-confidence.

Rees-Mogg is a leader of the anti-EU European Research Group (ERG), a Tory faction who boast around 60 MPs as members and are pushing for a hard-Brexit.

Rees-Mogg has until now been supportive of openly Theresa May, if not of her Brexit plans. But now it would appear, the well-spoken Brexiteer has been tipped over the edge, and has for the first time given the PM a public dressing down.

It’s thought the ex-Etonian is pushing for a Canada-style free trade agreement with the EU, which has the backing of around 80 MPs and former Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson, according to the Times.
