Theresa May was rocked by the resignation of yet another senior staffer today as her top spin doctor dramatically quit Downing Street.
Well-respected Number 10 press secretary Lizzie Louden quit the Tory Government and told pals she will “move on to other things”.
Ms Louden had previously worked on the controversial – but highly successful – Vote Leave campaign.
She was Mrs May’s most senior political spinner left in Downing Street following the sudden resignation of communications director Katie Perrior earlier this week.
It comes amid reports of a grim atmosphere inside Number 10 under the leadership of Mrs May and her all-powerful chiefs of staff Nick Timothy and Fiona Hill since they came to power last July.
One source told the Financial Times that the mood has turned “from day to night” under the new regime.
“Number 10 is in crisis as all their top spin doctors jump ship,” Lib Dem leader Tim Farron said today.
“Even they can’t defend Theresa May’s divisive hard Brexit plans.”
