UK Prime Minister Theresa May faces leadership ballot after Conservative MPs trigger no confidence

Finnish prime minister Juha Sipilä told reporters: "Legally binding will be a little bit hard but anyway I think that we all want to help".

Mr Drax explained exactly why submitted a vote of no confidence in the Prime Minister.

Responding to the result, the Scottish First Minister said: "This result is barely even a pyrrhic victory for the Prime Minister, who has now admitted her time in office is limited".

Solicitor general Robert Buckland told reporters: "She said "In my heart I would like to lead the party into the next election" and then that was the introductory phrase to her indication that she would accept the fact that that would not happen, that is not her intention".

That is probably because she has already agreed to it, and so has the EU27.

May has to bring her vote back to Parliament by January 21, just 67 days before Britain is due to leave the EU. May had cancelled the vote this week and instead made a dash across Europe trying desperately to get some concessions for her deal.

YouTube Rewind 2018 becomes site’s most disliked video
For instance, 2012's video was basically just a dance party to Psy's Gangnam Style and Carly Rae Jepsen's Call Me Maybe . But that came after an initial, forceful, negative reaction from many creators and their fans when the video came out.


Every MP in her Cabinet swiftly issued statements of support and she was greeted by loud cheers from the Tory backbenches when she faced the House of Commons for her weekly session of Prime Minister's Questions.

"She doesn't believe that this vote today is about leading the party into the next election", said the source.

While the prime minister faces a challenge in fulfilling her pledges to MPs over the backstop, she has confirmed she will honour a commitment to stand down before the next scheduled election in 2022. Will a general election be needed? The Brexit withdrawal agreement only talks about "best endeavours" being used to reach an agreement during the transition period.

According to the BBC's Brussels Correspondent Adam Fleming, "EU leaders are considering a commitment to continue negotiating a trade deal with the United Kingdom even if the Irish backstop comes into force - to prove that they want it to be temporary".

Mrs May is attempting to get political and legal reassurances about the Irish border backstop.

He reiterated: "If the backstop has an expiry date, if there is a unilateral exit clause, then it is not a backstop". Her situation remains perilous. Before the no confidence vote Jeremy Corbyn was under pressure to call one of his own in the House of Commons, with SNP, Plaid Cymru, Lib Dems and centrist Labour MPs pushing for a vote.

French Authorities Have Killed Christmas Market Shooter
Chekatt had 27 convictions in France , Germany and Switzerland, and authorities believe he became radicalised while in jail. Two of his sisters in Paris were also questioned on Thursday and one of their homes was searched, a judicial source said.


He said: 'It has been an extraordinary week in Parliament and another chaotic day for the Tory government.

Prime Minister Theresa May won a confidence vote with 200 out of 317 Tory MPs supporting her to stay on as leader.

The legal assurance would - critically - allow the DUP to budge and support the deal; recall the DUP are kingmakers in this whole process, they know May needs her, the European Union know May needs the DUP and therefore the European Union must produce something to satisfy the DUP. Turkeys don't vote for Christmas.

'I hope the men in grey suits will apply the clothes brush, put them on and head into Downing Street shortly'.

As she desperately tried to peel off opposition among her mutinous MPs yesterday, she promised to get the DUP back on side and not to come back without a deal they will back.

Despite the vote in her favour, Tory rebels such as Jacob Rees-Mogg have urged her to resign immediately. Numerous 117 will fear No Deal and a Corbyn government much more than they are committed to the fantasy empire 2.0 Brexit.
