Theresa May Survives Vote of No Confidence

One News Page Staff Thursday, 13 December 2018
Theresa May Survives Vote of No Confidenceby 👩‍💻 Stephanie Boyd

If there is a politician who has been front and center in the mass media this past year who isn’t Donald Trump, it’s UK Prime Minister Theresa May. While negotiating the country’s imminent divorce from the European Union, May has found herself numerous critics within her own government and outside of it, over her general handling of the process, her proposed deals which may still offer links to the EU, and most recently, her postponing of MPs voting on her latest deal. As a result, in the past two days, May has faced a vote of no confidence from her own party – and has won through with a clear majority.

200 MPs voted to back May’s leadership against 117 who felt she needed to resign – meaning that, regardless of what happens next, she will remain the Prime Minister. BBC News reports that the vote will leave her immune from any further challenges for a year. The vote itself came as a result of a challenge to May’s recent decision to postpone a meaningful vote on Brexit, which according to various predictions would have resulted in a heavy defeat for the Prime Minister.

For now, however, at least legally, May has quelled the infighting, though 117 MPs in doubt of her ability to lead will still be seen as a significant blow to her leadership. May has also seen considerable defeats on an electoral scale, with the Conservative Party losing their majority in 2017 and needing to find support with the Northern Irish DUP to effectively stay in power.

So – what happens now? With May effectively legally in position now for at least another twelve months, she will now need to consider what happens next with regard to her Brexit deal. She has been advised in no uncertain term s by EU representatives that there will be no changes made to the agreement laid out – while some believe that she could postpone the vote until early 2019, when MPs will be faced with no alternative between her deal and no deal. This, however, remains to be seen.

A third option remains on the table – a second referendum – as it emerged recently that the UK could legally rescind Article 50, which would effectively stop Brexit in its tracks. However, once again – it is merely a possibility. Where will it all end?
