The call to resign came as May spoke to reporters following a speech in Whitehall on Monday.
"It makes me shudder to think that we could seriously be about to elect a Corbyn-led coalition that would impose destructive new taxes on businesses, on homes, on gardens - at the very moment when we could be about to go forward with Global Britain", he will say.
High profile leaders from across political and security circles are today calling for Theresa May to resign over her police cuts.
We've got more newsletters we think you'll find interesting. "But I think that overall we have seen too much tolerance of extremism in our society".
Government figures show the number of police officers has fallen from 146,030 officers in 2010 to 126,766 in 2016, while the number of armed officers has dropped from 6,976 to 5,639 in the same time.
"We have protected counter terrorism policing budgets, we have also provided funding for an increase in the number of armed police officers and since 2015 we have protected overall police budgets - and that's despite the fact that Jeremy Corbyn's Labour Party in the House of Commons suggested that police budgets could be cut".
And after laying out her plan for Britain's future she said: "Now compare that to the alternative".
He said that while the Met Police did a brilliant job despite the cuts, they needed more resources. "We need to step up a gear and look at what we now need to do differently in the face of what does appear to be again a changing threat". During an interview with Sky News on Sunday 4 June, Kirkham accused May of outright "lying" to the public about the London attacks.
Pressed on whether this meant penetrating encrypted messaging services, she said the tech industry had done the "right thing" in the past in terms of removing indecent images from their platforms and now ministers wanted the "same response" over extremist material.
"But as our efforts to defeat them overseas are ever more successful, they are increasingly seeking to spread their poisonous ideology and to prey on the weak and vulnerable in our own countries, inspiring them to commit acts of terror here at home".
"We have to get serious about cutting off the funding to these terror networks, including ISIS here and in the Middle East", he said.
The base case is still that the Conservative Party led by Prime Minister Theresa May will retain power. I said at the time that I'm not a showy politician. "That should include exposing and rooting out the source of funding terror, even if it means hard and embarrassing conversations with those like Saudia Arabia that the government claims are our allies".
Meanwhile, Steve Hilton, former director of strategy for Cameron, also condemned May's record.
