Theresa May’s incompetence is creating opposition within the Conservative party, according to Guardian columnist Polly Toynbee.

May has come under severe controversy over grammar school plans and Brexit negotiations since she became Prime Minister in July. 

Journalist Toynbee told Sam Delaney that some of the Prime Minister's decisions are terribly incorrect. 

"I [originally] felt a huge sense of relief, we didn't know much about Theresa May, but at least she wasn't Boris Johnson, Michael Gove or Andrea Leadsom" Toynbee said.

"I think the shine's beginning to come off," she added. "We're finding the three very reckless people that she's put in charge of the Brexit negotiations are already all over the place.

"She's got the wrong people, I think she thought it would calm them down to put the extremists in charge, [but] I think she's made a terrible error."
