THE SUN’s call for Theresa May to go went worldwide yesterday – as Tory MPs praised the “Time’s Up” call.
The front page was picked by the media in the US, Canada Japan and Australia as well as electrifying social media back in the UK.
The Washington Post had already listed the PM’s five “famous fights for survival” dating back to her disastrous snap election of 2017.
Tory MP Nigel Evans – secretary of the influential 1922 backbench committee – said The Sun had got it “spot on yet again” with our demand that she resigns to seal her deal and deliver Brexit.
He said: “The Sun is famous for being able to tap into what the Great British people are thinking – and I think you’ve got it spot on.
“People want her deal to go through then they want someone else to carry out the next phase of negotiations. You’ve got it right.
“The Sun knows the mindset of middle Britain better than anyone - your front page has put into words what people are thinking.”
Fellow Brexit-backing Tory Anne Marie Trevelyan said: “I think the time has come for an orderly change of leader.”
But in an emergency Cabinet meeting on the crisis yesterday morning, none of Mrs May’s ministers dared to raise her future in No10.
