The campaign to oust Theresa May is being coordinated from the office of former leader Iain Duncan Smith, it can be revealed by City A.M.

A group of Brexiters determined to end May’s leadership gathered in the plush office in Parliament on Wednesday afternoon to discuss tactics ahead of the no confidence vote set to begin just hours later.

Former Brexit minister Steve Baker – the shop steward of the European Research Group – was among those in the meeting, along with Duncan Smith’s old Maastricht rebel ally Sir Bernard Jenkin.

Duncan Smith has repeatedly claimed he would not submit a letter of no confidence to trigger a vote as he was subject to such an action when he was leader in 2003 – although he has said it is “time for a change”.
