Theresa May wins confidence vote

Not a hope of getting the WA passed. 🙂

So, 117 of her own party voted against the WA.
Those along with 300 others ensures that there will be no WA.

Varadkar can beg the NI Sinn Fien MPS to vote for the WA all he wants but they are not going to make any difference. Ireland is phked !

Good. I am glad that the PM has won the vote of confidence.

Now let’s have the interim arrangements voted through, and we can leave the EU.

So nothing has changed. The can will be kicked further and further down the road. Well, patience is a virtue.

Nice to see the Brexiters make such a whooper. They cannot have a go for 1 year now.

200 for 117 against. She is a lame duck and may yet be wounded enough to have to retire from the fray

It is pretty disastrous when over a third of the mp’s in your party do not support you and even more at grass roots level who have said they want her to go.

Nice try O’Toole. First question: Isn’t it your bedtime? How late is it in Moscow?

This is a resounding victory for May. Immune now for 365 days.
My pazzo friends -Bootie and Stew and Fake Gupta and all the other ERG fanatics: What is next for you? Blow up your government and your party? Or crawl back into your asylum abode?

Tony,
She got 199 when she was elected PM. She got 200 now.

Nuff said.

More like the ball has been kicked into the long fudge.

Mind you she won the support of less than two thirds of her party. That may still force her to step down as the grass roots members hate her.

On the other hand if she wants to cling to power she knows she needs to show much more backbone than has been the case to date

She’s finished. Now all parliamentary business grinds to a halt until the inevitable general election – which Corbyn would certainly now win. I’ve contacted the party to tell them unless she resigns I shall not be renewing my membership, and will not be helping out during the election cycle.

The Tories deserve a good 10 years ‘in the wilderness’ (out of power). They cannot negotiate a deal, cannot get a bad deal through parliament, cannot negotiate something better, and cannot even throw the PM out even though she is making such a mess of it. I mean: even the Tory rebels are incompetents.

In the UK it may not be known, but may other (EU) countries show that you CAN have proper government. One that actually governs, and makes proper decisions. Its a real mess.

Elena,
The party is a mess – which is why the government is.
May got a resounding win tonight. Now she needs to decide what to do with it. She will not get a “legally binding temporary” backstop. Not just oxymoronic – plain moronic.
The backstop is…surprise…a backstop. Will be legally bindings as per WA.

May can now push her WA through parliament – or go the new election/2nd referendum route. Not her favorite path…but then again she also promised a vote just before she changed her mind.

National unity decision? I cannot see our pazzo friends do the rational thing. They are ideologues and probably now hope for chaos.

Alas…they will be disappointed once more.

Let’s not go there. There are plenty of EU governments facing much more insignificant issues than Brexit with no majority.

Not sure that is a direct comparison as that 199 occurred when there were three candidates and was part of a longer process that then involved the members . The vote tonight was a straightforward yes or no vote.

Mind you her party may get behind her when the alternative is an election

It reflects the vote against the WA perfectly.
200 conservatives would vote for it, 450 others would vote against it.

Little Fauntleroy

Resounding victory. ROFL. Nobody voted for her who isn’t in direct employ of the executive – or put another way she’s paid off. The non-parliamentary party is going *crazy* and she’s never going to get anything through parliament ever again. If that’s a resounding victory…

Att Comment

Dear Politico

Ha ha ha
Even with gremlins messing up pass WORDS
we learn to stay Calm and retain the Original but it keeps Dummys happy

So to T/M and the Eurotrolls trying to PLAY up the Result
Just to leave you know the TRUE VALUE of the Result
To quote JRM 117 against is a TOTAL Disaster
for Tess

She should make Her way to Buckingham Palace and EXCUSE Herself

It’s all over for Her and the Honchoes in BRUSSELLS will treat her and the Confidence Vote as Such

She has no business going across and getting Slapped down again

She should get the Knitting Bag Out

Her behaviour especially for the last Month was Shamful
Herself @ MUTTI in Berlin are MARKING TIME
Tonight TESS has no reason to CROW

Cheers for Brexit
Allways

“Let’s not go there. There are plenty of EU governments facing much more insignificant issues than Brexit with no majority.”

Its never totally plain sailing in any government, and in the EU its often quite strange and a mess: Belgium for example did not even have a government for two years some time ago. Nobody in the EU cared very much (not even the Belgians).

Having such a clown show in the UK at this moment seems however to be unwelcome at this point in time.

Cheeky NumberTwo

Mortally wounded. Better shred the WA as it is totally dead.

DUP to withdraw confidence and supply.
Then vote with Labour on no-confidence motion.
May resigns immediately
Brexiteer put in charge
14 days later, the confirmatory confidence motion which the DUP now back.
Confidence and supply restored.
Conservatives stay in power with new leadrt

@Elena Adaal

which European government are you hoping to exemplar for all where the leading party got 42% of the vote? (oh by the way TM got around the same support in confidence as she did in her leadership bid.,…pretty good…

Great! More time for May begging around the EU leaders with their bowl 😀
It’s my impression, or May is becoming more and more hump 😀

In the left door, T. May’s half house solution. In the right door, EU membership or WTO treaty exit. I will go with the right door.

It’s a pretty thin margin. 117 against doesn’t bode well for the WA.

So the options now are: revoke Article 50; extend Article 50; leave on 29 March with no deal.

Door #3 for the win, but I suppose that’s too much to hope for and the Barnier/Juncker/Tusk triumvirate will provide some sort of letter “assuring” the British Parliament that the backstop, if it is activated, will only be operational for 100 years, after which time it can be “renegotiated”.

Ok. She will deliver Brexit than. A hard lesson for all plebes not to ever dare ask for a referendum ever again.

Hard Brexit. Yes! You have my blessing. Go the Rhodesian way – it always turn out well.
