In the latest blow to Theresa May's already unstable conservative government, an MP has written a letter of no confidence to the already pilloried leader.

Philip Johnson, MP for Shipley, today submitted a letter of no-confidence in Theresa May saying that her Chequers plan for Brexit is 'unacceptable' and failure to deliver Brexit would result in Corbyn as prime minister.

According to the Yorkshire Post, Mr Davies' letter said:

Politics is all about trust and once it is lost it is impossible to win back. Many people have told me that as a result of this they have lost trust in the PM to properly and fully deliver the referendum result.

It is with much sadness that I have to say that have also lost trust in her to deliver the referendum result too.

Therefore I have reluctantly come to the conclusion that I have no alternative but to send a letter to the chairman of the 1922 Committee asking him for a vote of no confidence in the prime minister.

His letter of no confidence has further shaken the crumbling foundations of May's government, and it could trigger a leadership contest.

Since the letter has been submitted, many have taken to social media to express their bemusement at the resignation, as well as their dislike of Mr Davies due to his voting history, which includes attempting to block an anti-domestic violence bill.

Some have reacted in a tongue in cheek manner.

Many highlighted his history of voting in a way that damages women.

Others focused on the important questions.

Yikes - some got personal.

Others noted that politics is moving fast these days.

Some were disappointed by why his name had been trending.

Then things got nasty.

Finally, the Harry Potter references got involved.

Whatever your take, this certainly isn't good news for Theresa May.
