In response to Rebecca English: Never rule out a vote of no confidence,
John Fannon wrote:
In the aftermath of the recent vote of no confidence, Rees-Mogg said that the ERG agreed to support the Government on the assurances that ‘no deal’ would remain as an option. Well, that didn’t last long, did it? Abstaining in a vote of no confidence should be the most straightforward means of dumping May. The Government would have a period of grace (ten days?) to seek a new arrangement which would have the support of the Commons.
Interesting to see that back-stabber Gove showed his true colours yet again yesterday.
Are these 14 ministers who have been over-ruled so May can work with her political opponents going to resign today en masse? If not, why not? What’s the point of them and this government any more if May will work with opponents instead?
Clearly we are heading for the worst non Brexit of all and May is hoping Corbyn’s fingerprints can be all over it as well.
I should think that if I were one of those MPs who have steadfastly stuck to their guns, been continuously insulted, smeared, threatened, hoodwinked and betrayed by May and her treasonous ilk, then I would have no hesitation whatsoever in voting against the government and bringing it down, and it does need bringing down.
With substantial majorities, and in constituencies where the Leave vote was at a minimum of 60 per cent, then these MPs have nothing to fear.
