The European Union is reportedly worried that British Prime Minister Theresa May‘s government will collapse before the end of this year.
There is growing concern in Brussels that the increasing instability of the Conservative minority government could soon trigger a change in leadership or a general election leading to a Labour government, according to The Times.
All the while, Brexit talks between British and EU negotiators resumed on November 9 with the UK government in a state of disarray.
Michael Fallon resigned as defence secretary last week after being named in a sexual-misconduct scandal that has engulfed Westminster. On November 8, Priti Patel left her role as international development secretary after it emerged that she had held unauthorised meetings with Israeli politicians.
As reported by Business Insider, May is also under pressure to sack Boris Johnson. The foreign secretary’s mistaken claim that Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe was in Iran to teach journalism when she was arrested in Tehran last year is being used against the imprisoned Brit as evidence as she faces another five years being added to her sentence.
