Senior Tories are set to meet tonight for an *executive 1922 Committee* meeting to discuss changing the rules of Conservative party leadership challenges.
As it stands, a confidence vote cannot be held until 12 months after the last challenge on December 12 2018, which Mrs May won by 200 votes to 117.
But, there are reports of a 50/50 split among the 1922 Committee as to whether or not that period should be reduced to 6 months.
With new rules potentially allowing dissatisfied MPs to repeatedly destabilise a future leader or prime minister, could the Tories become more unstable? 🤔
