Theresa May has told her critics that getting rid of her as Prime Minister would not make delivering Brexit any easier.
May told Sky News’s Ridge on Sunday it had been a “tough week” but that she would not be distracted.
She also said the next seven days “are going to be critical” for the UK’s future.
Asked whether the chairman of the backbench 1922 committee, Sir Graham Brady had received the 48 letters needed to trigger a confidence vote in her leadership, she replied: “As far as I know, no – it has not.”
She suggested agreeing more details of UK’s future relationship with the EU, ahead of an expected summit next week, could satisfy the concerns of some of the Tory MPs opposed to her plans.
Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said his party could get a better deal in time for Brexit, which is due to happen on March 29th.
