Concerns are being expressed about Andrea Leadsom's fitness to lead the Conservative party according to an article in this morning's Metro paper.

According to the article up to 20 MPs are ready to resign if she becomes leader.

This allow follows on from her interview with The Times newspaper where she made comments that have been construed as her saying that she would be better able to lead the country than Theresa May as she's a mother and Theresa May isn't.

Given that Theresa May had recently admitted that she and her husband were unable to have children. These remarks have been seen as very inappropriate by many.
