Theresa May: Brexit won't be easier if I'm ousted

Theresa May has told her critics that getting rid of her as PM would not make delivering Brexit any easier.
Mrs May, who has been facing calls for a no-confidence vote from some of her MPs since her draft plan for leaving the EU was published on Wednesday, said ousting her would "create uncertainty".
She said the threshold of 48 letters - to trigger a no-confidence vote - had not been reached "as far as I know".
Jeremy Corbyn said Labour could get a better deal in time for Brexit.There has been widespread criticism of the draft withdrawal agreement reached between the UK and the EU, which is set be signed off at a special summit next week.
There is also doubt over whether it can win the approval of the House of Commons, with opposition parties - including Northern Ireland's Democratic Unionist Party - opposing it.
Some cabinet ministers are also believed to be still trying to change its wording.
Mrs May told Sky News's Ridge on Sunday it had been a "tough week" but that she would not be distracted.
"Politics is a tough business and I've been in it for a long time," she said.
Asked whether Sir Graham Brady - chairman of the backbench 1922 committee - had received the 48 letters needed to trigger a confidence vote in her leadership, she replied: "As far as I know, no - it has not."
And in a warning to those pushing for a change of leader, she said: "It is not going to make the negotiations any easier and it won't change the parliamentary arithmetic."
