Have added my name to this letter organised by @IanMurrayMP of over 50 @UKLabour MPs & peers calling for an immediate vote of no confidence in the Government under the Fixed Term Parliament Act 2011 following the events of today. Let’s get it done with + move on to a #PeopleVotehttps://t.co/uE1pvP3NtE
Yet Jeremy Corbyn increased Labour's vote share more than any of the party's leaders since 1945. Work that one out!
May 's credibility was shot to pieces after her strong and stable campaign comprehensively collapsed.
She visibly failed while Corbyn failed to win, but it was enough for the moderate Labour wing to pull back from the brink of splintering off, and retaking the middle ground. In retrospect likely a tragedy for the country
What a day, what a mess! The handing of Brexit has been nothing short of a disaster. For long periods of time the internal politics and wrangling of the Conservative Party have taken centre stage and the National interest has been a poor second. Politicians ego’s are coming to the fore and they are all jostling to become the next PM. The Labour Party aren’t much better, how do they think they can negotiate a better deal, they need to enlighten us. How are they going to force a General Election through, they haven’t got the numbers unless there are defectors in the Tory Party or the DUP switch sides which quite simply is not going to happen. As divided as the Conservatives are they won’t contemplate allowing JC in to number 10.
What do we look like to the world, who is going to want to deal with us and how long will it take to sort out? DT and the States? DT changes his mind like the wind and can fall out with his own shadow in a phone booth! With a National interest agenda (and I don’t blame putting his country and people first) we are going to fomeca pretty poor second. If you read the papers it seems that aspects of a deal agreed with the Chinese a few weeks ago are coming apart at the seems.
The EU were never going to make this easy and I honestly believe we aren’t going to get anything else out of them. More confusion and mess to be cleared up and the big day approaches quickly as PIkey Paul reminds us.
