Esther McVay suggested she will run for Tory Leader and people have a lot to say

Who's ready for another week of Brexit?

*crickets chirping*

Now, the former secretary of state for work and pensions, Esther McVey, has come out to say that she would run for Tory leadership if "enough people supported me".

Speaking to Sky News' Sophy Ridge earlier this morning, McVey said May's hold on power was now "very dubious".

Referring to the current prime minister, she continued:

She has got to look at the fact – when collective responsibility collapses like that, who is the voice of government?

The government should only have one voice so the country knows what we stand for, so the world knows what we stand for.

The Brexiteer, who recently launched a "Ladies for Leave" campaign, added:

If there were enough people who supported me, if it seemed there was a reasonable chance, I would.

While there has been uncertainty as to who will replace the current prime minister, if she were to step down, many people didn't think McVey would be the one to rise up first to the challenge.

Stay tuned.
