UK Prime Minister Theresa May could still face a vote of no confidence after a Conservative MP, Philip Davies, submitted a letter stating he did not trust the PM to deliver on Brexit the UK Metro reported.

However, another Conservative MP, Simon Clarke, who had previously lodged a demand with a party committee stating he had lost confidence in the PM, has withdrawn his demand for May to step down as leader of the Conservative party and subsequently Prime Minister Sky News reported on Thursday.

The UK report that around 40 Conservative MP’s want a motion of no confidence in May over what they see as her failure to deliver on Brexit, but a minimum of 48 Conservative MP’s is needed to force the issue to a vote.

Meanwhile, UKIP, who led to the charge to get a vote on EU membership has seen a significant jump in the polls, more than doubling its support, as those Conservative supporters in favour of Brexit jump ship for the party founded by Nigel Farage the UK Independent reports.
