Cameron warned of lead­er­ship chal­lenge

Warwickshire Telegraph - - NEWS -

DAVID Cameron has been put on no­tice a post EU ref­er­en­dum lead­er­ship chal­lenge is loom­ing as Tory civil war on Europe es­ca­lates fur­ther.

More than 50 MPs are ready to move against the Prime Min­is­ter, ac­cord­ing to prom­i­nent back­bencher An­drew Brid­gen.

Break­ing ranks to talk openly of a bid to top­ple the Prime Min­is­ter, Mr Brid­gen warned anger in the Tory party was now so in­tense a chal­lenge was “prob­a­bly highly likely” as he warned the al­ter­na­tive was a “zom­bie par­lia­ment”.

“I think it’s go­ing to be very, very dif­fi­cult to pull all the sides to­gether and have a work­ing ma­jor­ity go­ing for­ward,” Mr Brid­gen said.
