Exciting times indeed, i think Corbyn Missed/Dodged a Chance/Bullet. This is all part of the game of chess that's going on. I wouldn't be surprised if there was an internal memo round the Tories urging them to get their letters in to trigger a Tory Leadership Vote if it comes back No Confidence before Corbyn could instigate a No Confidence Vote and trigger a General Election and they lost power

I don't think that May would agree with that. Fact is, the Tories are divided on Europe, always have been, always will be.
Hoey is a Eurosceptic and libertarian, and has often rebelled against her party. She was a prominent critic of the ban on handguns and, in an interview in Sporting Gun magazine, voiced her support for fox hunting. She has voted against government policy on the war in Iraq, foundation hospitals, university tuition and top-up fees, ID cards and extended detention without trial. She was a leading Labour rebel supporting a referendum on the EU Lisbon Treaty. Hoey has also opposed the smoking ban in clubs and pubs, reclassification of cannabis from a Class B to Class C and originally opposed devolution. She also favours stricter controls on immigration, tougher welfare reform, withdrawal from the European Union, English Votes for English Laws, grammar schools, marriage tax allowances, free schools and academies. She is a critic of the BBC and she also spoke in support of the election of unionist MPs in Northern Ireland.
