    I think the no's have it.

    Wait, what? So they’ve just voted against Britain stopping the backstop at any time it wants to?

      Maggie was stabbed in the back by her own party, I guess the strongest leader in the last couple of decades was Tony Blair. Yes, he was a sleazy politician but a smooth talker and the one leader that had the best shadow operatives in Peter Mandelson and Alastair Campbell.

          They have.

          I think they've done that though as a protest vote - if that is tacked on as an amendment to May's existing bill, it will make it harder to justify voting against May's bill. I think that point will likely be included as a standard point in any renegotiated exit.

                        Damn.

                        The deal is dead. Under these circumstances, there's no point in renegotiating.

                        • My my, May actually has serious balls.

                          She's offering a confidence vote to any party, not just the opposition.

                                        The biggest loss of any sitting Prime Minister since the 1920s - Ramsay MacDonald had the previous biggest loss.

                                          I wonder what May has up her sleeve. She isn’t coming this close to just give up.

                                                • If a vote of no confidence succeeds, a General Election will be called - that's the last thing we need.
