1922committee   33

Theresa May cannot ignore her party forever, writes Robert Peston - ITV News
Following the Tory humiliation in the local elections and the anticipated humiliation in the forthcoming EU elections, there is an expectation and hope among Tory MPs and her cabinet colleagues that she will announce a departure date that would allow MPs to choose their shortlist of two candidates in June or July - which would then permit hustings of members over the summer and the election of the new leader BEFORE Tory conference.

But close colleagues of the PM think she wants still to be PM and party leader at party conference, which on her view would be the showcase for the duo of potential leaders picked by MPs, prior to that final vote by members.
