UK Labour’s Corbyn Calls For Vote of No Confidence on Theresa May

The leader of the opposition Labour Party in the UK said a while ago that he will announce no confidence vote in the British Parliament for Prime Minister Theresa May. he said that is May doesn’t announce a date for a vote on the Brexit deal as soon as possible. He said that the Labour Party will only ask for her head on a plate and not the whole government.

Theresa May’s coalition DUP Party of Northern Ireland has rejected it. With their support, the no-confidence vote is bound to overthrow Theresa May but they don’t like the Brexit deal and they don’t want a no-confidence vote for May.

A heated debate is taking place in the British Parliament at the moment and Jeremy Corbyn added that a responsible Prime Minister would have put a deal before the parliament this week. Theresa May responded quickly, so here are her comments:

  • The backstop will not need to be triggered
  • If the backstop was triggered, it would be temporary
  • There is no plot to keep us in the backstop
  • Comments from European leaders have legal status
  • Implementation period could be extended if the backstop isn’t in place
  • There is an explicit termination clause in the backstop, it can only ever be temporary
  • Looking at ways of empowering parliament over backstop
  • Discussions continue backstop with EU
  • May says meaningful vote will take place in the third week of January (week starting Jan 14)
  • Cabinet will discuss no deal plans on Tuesday
  • Do not imagine that if we vote this down that a new deal will magically appear

She promised to bring back the deal to the British Parliament in the third week of January, so she has about a month left to wrap it up. The UK will leave the European Union in 14 weeks, so the clock is ticking.
