Theresa May

Vocable (All English) - - On Parle D'eux… -

Theresa May is in the hot seat. Last month, more than 50 Euroscep­tic Tory MPs gath­ered to dis­cuss meth­ods of oust­ing Bri­tain’s prime min­is­ter. Al­though Michael Gove, the en­vi­ron­ment sec­re­tary, dis­missed the meet­ing as “loose talk,” the MPs dis­cussed the tim­ing of a pos­si­ble vote of no con­fi­dence in the prime min­is­ter if she didn’t aban­don her Che­quers plan. How­ever, Theresa May would only need a sim­ple ma­jor­ity among all 315 Con­ser­va­tive MPs to de­feat a no-con­fi­dence vote. to be in the hot seat to be in an un­com­fort­able po­si­tion and un­der scru­tiny / Tory Con­ser­va­tive (Party) / MP = Mem­ber of Par­lia­ment / to gather to get to­gether, meet / to oust to push out, force out / sec­re­tary here, min­is­ter / to dis­miss sth as to deny and treat as / loose talk gos­sip, con­jec­ture, lie / tim­ing choos­ing a time for sth / vote of no con­fi­dence vote of de­fi­ance, op­po­si­tion, to re­move a per­son in power / Che­quers plan plan pro­posed by Theresa May of leav­ing the EU and Bri­tain’s fu­ture re­la­tion­ship with Europe ( Che­quers coun­try res­i­dence of the prime min­is­ter) / to de­feat to re­ject.
