For a coup, it certainly seemed short-lived. This morning’s newspapers hailed ministers such as Michael Gove and David Lidington as possible successors. By this afternoon those ministers were offering her public support.
But there is little doubt her leadership is in deep trouble and she held talks with some of her fiercest critics from her Brexiter faction today, to try to seek a way forward.
British Prime Minister Theresa May was under pressure on Monday to give a date for leaving office as the price to bring Brexit-supporting rebel lawmakers in her party behind her twice-defeated European Union divorce treaty.

While there was little sign of that pressure as May visited church with her husband, she’s reportedly planning a last-ditch attempt to win support among lawmakers for her Brexit deal, which parliament has rejected twice. Adding insult to injury, hundreds of thousands of people took to the streets of London and millions of British citizens have signed an online petition to call for a second referendum on Brexit.
