Mrs Leadsom, one of 11 declared candidates in the Tory leadership race officially starting on Monday, told the House magazine that tackling climate change was a “massive opportunity” for the UK to “lead the world”.

That is now in doubt. Andrea Leadsom has tonight announced her resignation as Leader of the House. In her resignation letter, the Brexiteer minister says that she has made the decision to leave government due to concerns over May’s position on Brexit. Of the deal as it now stands, Leadsom says she is concerned that May’s latest pitch means the government is ‘facilitating’ a second referendum and says there has been a ‘breakdown’ in the way the government approves Brexit policy: It is with great regret and a heavy heart that I have decided to resign from the Government. … [Read more...] about Andrea Leadsom resigns – will others now follow?

Commons leader Andrea Leadsom has resigned from the cabinet, saying she no longer believes the government will deliver Brexit . In her resignation letter to Theresa May, she said: "I no longer believe that our approach will deliver on the referendum result". She also said that holding another referendum would be 'dangerously divisive'. Leadsom's resignation comes amid intensifying pressure on Theresa May to quit as prime minister. She added in her letter: “No one has wanted you to succeed more than I have, but I do now urge you to make the right decisions in the interests of the country, this government and our party.” A string of ministers have demanded meetings with the PM. Some are said to be furious about her 'new deal' to encourage MPs to back her withdrawal bill. May has offered MPs a chance to hold a vote on another referendum if they back her Withdrawal Agreement Bill.

Not content though with just one attack on the government, the Speaker also found time to launch a dig at his favourite rival in the House of Commons: Andrea Leadsom. After the Commons leader entered the Chamber to sit on the front bench, and was checking her phone — presumably waiting on updates from Number 10 — Bercow appeared to be peeved that he didn’t have her full attention, and launched a broadside at her and the deputy chief whip, Christopher Pincher: ‘I note that as the right honourable gentleman asks his question and I respond, the leader of the house [Leadsom] is playing with her electronic device and … [Read more...] about Watch: John Bercow lays into Andrea Leadsom
