Ruth Davidson 'backed plot to oust Theresa May' after election

Boris Johnson Britain's Foreign Secretary arrives for a cabinet meeting at 10 Downing Street in London

The Scottish Conservative leader gave her support to an attempt by leading Tory moderates, including David Cameron and George Osborne, to install the Home Secretary as Prime Minister, according to a new book by Sunday Times political editor Tim Shipman.

It claims that a "triumvirate" plan was hatched under which Johnson would lead the United Kingdom as the new prime minister, Brexit Secretary Davis would handle European Union withdrawal and Hammond would run the country s finances.

"What I do know is that the most important conversation I had on that night was with Theresa May and she told that she had made a decision to seek to form a government; she asked me to serve in it and I committed to do (that) and back her".

Boris Johnson should take a "paternity test" for Brexit, Emily Thornberry said as she exploited the foreign secretary's private life to take a swipe at his views on leaving the EU.

Four-time Chancellor Philip Hammond has refused to back Theresa May's plans to lead the Conservatives in the next general election, putting her struggling stint as prime minister under even more pressure. I am completely behind her in doing that job. He responded: "Well, I'm not going to get involved in the discussion about future Conservative party leadership politics".

"I think we owe it to the British people to focus on that job in hand and get us through to a Brexit that is good for Britain and good for Britain's future".

"The real question is how long she will last and how much damage her divided and discredited government will do before it eventually goes".

Asked if he had sent the text, Mr Hammond said: "There was an very bad lot of communication going on during the early hours of that morning - texting, telephone calling, between all sorts of colleagues".

"I don't recognise some of the material I've seen in the Sunday papers. She asked me to serve in it, and I committed to do so and to back her". "The country needs to decide who is going to lead - the United Kingdom can not trust a government that can not trust itself".
