Tory councillors and MPs call for PM to consider position as party sheds nearly 500 seats
Conservative councillors and MPs have called for Theresa May to step down after the party lost nearly 500 seats in local elections dominated by the UK’s Brexit stalemate.
Council leaders called for the prime minister to consider her position, while others said they had made gains despite the government’s paralysis since the 2016 EU referendum. A heckler interrupted May as she gave a speech in Wales, saying: “Why don’t you resign? We don’t want you.”
