It’s official. After weeks of speculation the chairman of the 1922 Committee, Sir Graham Brady, has announced that the threshold of 15% of the parliamentary party seeking a vote of confidence in the leader of the Conservative Party has been exceeded. A ballot will be held this evening between 6-8pm GMT. All 315 Conservative MPs will vote, with the PM requiring 158 votes to survive.
