DAN HODGES: Who's in charge of Britain today? It isn't Theresa May or the Cabinet... the terrifying answer is it's nobody

Who runs Britain? Who is actually responsible for the governance of our nation this morning?

It isn’t the Prime Minister. Mrs May holds that title, but has relinquished any grip on the office. The only meaningful decision left for her now is the announcement of the date of her departure from Downing Street.

It’s not the Cabinet. As the Huawei debacle has revealed, their focus is no longer on running the Government but jostling for the premiership. The views of the voters of Britain are now secondary to the views of the 120,000 members of the Tory Party who will be eligible to vote in the upcoming leadership election.
