Theresa May’s aides in firing line after election woe
Theresa May’s special advisers have been put in the firing line following the Conservatives’ disastrous General Election result.
The pair had quit their Downing Street roles in order to oversee the Conservatives’ General Election campaign, in line with strict election rules.
Their central involvement in coordinating the Tory campaign and drafting Mrs May’s manifesto is now the focus of MPs’ fury at the General Election result.
The Conservatives’ social care fiasco, which derailed the manifesto, and Mrs May’s tightly controlled campaign appearances are being blamed for the party’s failure to win a majority.
A number of other Conservative MPs are also reportedly ready to demand the pair leave Downing Street as the price of Mrs May’s failure.
