So yeah, this would literally take a small handful of rebel conservative MPs to vote for it and she could find her self out of a job.

Tomorrow could be interesting lads!


I still don't think the rebels are going to risk putting themselves up for another GE with the chance of Labour getting in and truly stuffing up Brexit with the wet lettuce Corbyn in charge.

Hmm, another disappointment in store.
With the ERG and DUP backing the government I think the no confidence vote will fail.
The only hope for defeating the government seems to lie with the Tory remainers who must feel like any future deal will be softer, so why would they vote against May?


Like I said before I am not brave enough to predict this vote.

But.

The DUP have 10MPs (I think, its not a lot), now even if they and the ERG support May whats to say there isn't 15 or so Torries who are just pissed off enough with everything to vote against her government.

The only prediction that I would make is that its going to be a close vote.

The vote of no confidence in the Govt will be tomorrow.

I fail to see how anyone could have even a hint of confidence in Theresa May - or the idiots she has assembled around her.

Some of those Conservative MPs though want what Corbyn wants, to remain in the common market so they might just go for it.

I am not making a prediction with this to be clear I am just saying that I don't think this is going to be a comfortable win for the government assuming they do win.

It will be close, But I would hazard it being 327 in favour of the government.

Yeah, it's a question of who though.
For one thing, it'll have to be safe seat Tories, and how many of them are angry enough?

Boris has ruined his chances of ever becoming PM.
He is a Remainer and only changed sides as he viewed it as an opportunity to further his own career.

Rees Mogg has absolutely zero chance - he is a Roman Catholic and so will never, ever be allowed to hold the highest office.

Besides which both are complete twats!

Well we are getting a vote of no confidence its happening. Tomorrow, 7pm.


Yes. What I meant is that you won't get a successful no confidence vote. Even if it was successful, how does this help Brexit? Our elected officials seem bent on royally buggering up the UK. They need to get real and work on Brexit.

I despise Bojo, but I think JRM would make a decent PM.
Never happen though.

I think Rees Mogg is great - just what we need.

I am not a fan of this.

I don't think tabling this vote was the right idea.

I do think however that May's job is not safe right now, I think there is a chance that we could find ourselves facing a general election. Also remember the law does say that parliament have 14 days to form a government themselves its possible that could play into the games being played.

No Deal is actually the only opton left to give the people what they voted for. Whether it's this govt or the next, there is not a majority in Parliament to vote on any deal that is not, basically, remaining in the EU.

That is why the majority who voted to leave are so pissed off right now. Our elected officials are not honouring the will of the people. There are some troubling times ahead.

Probably not a good idea to assume someone you don't like can not be elected, solely because you don't like them.
I have a feeling that any leader who makes it clear that he or she is pro-brexit is going to get elected. This is an issue where people will cross party lines and the majority as we know, voted to leave. If that leave number was 52% again, and they voted for a pro-brexit candidate, it would be a landslide.

We're doomed, doomed, as Frazer in Dads Army would say.

I agree that May has lost all credibility, I can hear the EU representatives saying I told you so and going into punishment mode. S'n-word' s'n-word'.

Regardless of anyone's opinions of Rees Mogg the fact is he's Catholic and for no other reason than that he will never be allowed to be Prime Minister.
Sajid Javid has far more chance......and for a Tory he's certainly more personable and seems to have a steely resilience.

Its a shame that Big Ruth isnt up for it


I know she's a Tory but she does appear to be a bit more compassionate than your normal, run of the mill Conservative and she has a social conscience.....a rarity in Tories.
She seems to be strong and focussed with a clear vision, something sadly lacking in UK politics for far too long now.
