As her five next steps, Theresa May should: Stay in the House of Commons – her experience is needed. Ration her criticism of Boris Johnson (don’t become another Ted Heath). Form a think tank – dedicated to a cause like Whitehall reform or fighting modern slavery. Hire a social media advisor – revealing more of her personality and hinterland. And – last but not least – surround herself with a few trusted but candid friends.
The supporters of the former Prime Minister are determined to bring down Rishi Sunak. They should understand it means collapsing the government and speeding a Labour victory.
