The Tories’ inability to lead Brexit negotiations was laid bare today as Theresa May’s weak leadership was mocked in the European Parliament.

Manfred Weber, the leader of the biggest group in the European Parliament, said he could no longer tell who was speaking for the UK Government.

“Who shall I call in London? Who speaks for the Government? Theresa May, Boris Johnson or even David Davis?”

He challenged May to regain some credibility by sacking Johnson as Foreign Secretary.

But Theresa May continues to bottle it – despite the Tory conference being completely overshadowed by the challenge to her leadership.

All the media appearances she made this morning were dominated by the issue.

On BBC Radio 4’s Today programme, May was asked: “Who is in charge of Brexit?”

The first question she was asked on Sky News was: “Is he a threat to your leadership?”

And on ITV’s Good Morning Britain, May looked uncomfortable as she was asked if Johnson was “unsackable”:

It’s clear that, in her own words, Theresa May is now “alone and naked” in the Brexit negotiations…

    It’s her the top crew of tory committee have to sack including Boris Johnson . TM is too weak to lead and yet so obsessed with holding position that she can’t even manage conference without us as the public questioning who are these tories in government controlling our lives eu decisions economy failing and TM is powerless yet she lied to the queen for power she lies to us strong leadership has no yes men how perverse is this psychology. The control room in tory party is too broken for this High level of negotiations. We as society deserve a no confidence vote.
