"The result of this #ConfidenceVote confirms that the Tory Party is institutionally Europhile.
The only hope for Brexit is for the 17.4 million to back the only notable party which backs it 100% and that is UKIP-the party of Brexit"
United Kingdom Independence Party leader Gerard Batten On Twitter 12/12/2018
"Mrs. May limps on to her next failure, the deal won't pass and the real crisis is close"
"Mr. Brexit" Nigel Farage On Twitter 12/12/2018
In the end there were 117 votes against her among the 300 or so Conservative members of the House of Commons. That was over one-third or 37 percent to be more exact. My guess going into it was that only 80 would vote against her. Nigel Farage projected 100.
Public opinion polling shows 63 percent of Conservative voters wanting her replaced.
Theresa May won as the political machine usually can. Her supporters were of course spinning the notion of victory and the need to move on with her controversial Brexit plan.
Big business and big banks want her fake Brexit.
May promised to leave before the next election in order to placate opposition ahead of the vote but that was probably already a given knowing that her course is to get her Brexit plan passed and deliver the sellout to the European Union.
Once she's served her purpose she would have move on anyway.
Can the opposition cook up a motion of no confidence in Theresa May's government to force an election? Its a tall order but we shall see.
The Fixed Term of Parliament law was passed to make it more difficult to have snap elections, got to keep government stable for the sake of business interests. Business domination of political systems is making them less and less democratic-representative etc. etc.
If the Leader of the Opposition Labor's Jeremy Corbyn can unite all opposition parties with the Democratic Unionists who support May's government, he might get a no-confidence motion through and start a complex process that has the potential to trigger a new election.
Prime Minister May has been working to placate the Ulster Unionists (Democratic Unionist Party) who prop up her narrow majority in the House of Commons.
She's been touring European capitals and trying to cook up "assurances" that are not legally binding regarding Northern Ireland's status under her Brexit deal. Her travels take her to the EU summit Thursday.
Which I hope we have bugged six ways from Sunday.
Many older Brits already look back on Jan. 1, 1973 (the date of the UK’s entry into the EU) as a tragedy.
For someone that reads a lot of British history, the whole desire to be in the EU just seems so baffling.
Literally in 80 years they went from the world’s lone superpower, to basically a province of Bugundy.
I guess Brits have citizens too who are busy subverting duly litigated policy... just the same as we do here in the US.
What’s going on is just the systematic invalidation of the demonstrated public will and established policy . plain and simple. Its an illicit agenda and a treacherous precedent
All the manifestly legitimate best-practices, long-standing and established protocols are out the window.
Spengler was right, in the end it just comes down to blood and money. We’re getting there
