Theresa May vows to contest no-confidence vote outside Number 10
12 December, 2018, 23:57 | Author: Darnell Patrick
The threat to May has been building as pro-Brexit lawmakers within the Conservative Party grew increasingly frustrated with the prime minister's conduct of Brexit and the divorce deal she has agreed with the European Union.
Facing nearly certain defeat, British Prime Minister Theresa May on Monday postponed a vote in Parliament on her Brexit deal, saying she would go back to European Union leaders to seek changes to the divorce agreement.
After two hours of voting in Committee Room 14 in the House of Commons, Graham Brady, chairman of the 1922 Committee of Conservative backbenchers, said 200 Conservative lawmakers had voted in support of May as leader, and 117 against, indicating her party was bitterly divided over the direction of Brexit. May vowed she stood "ready to finish the job".
If May wins, she can't be challenged again for a year, so a decisive victory could strengthen her hand. Instead, she spent the day shuttling through European capitals, seeking changes to the deal to try to win over skeptical legislators before Britain leaves the EU on March 29.
The vote will take place between 6pm and 8pm local time Wednesday and the result will be announced later in the evening. She will remain leader, and prime minister, until the successor is picked.
Brexit is Britain's most significant political and economic decision since the Second World War, though pro-Europeans fear the departure will weaken the West as it grapples with the presidency of Donald Trump and growing assertiveness from Russian Federation and China. "Conservatives must now answer whether they wish to draw ever closer to an election under Mrs May's leadership".
The main sticking point since divorce negotiations began nearly two years ago is how to keep goods flowing seamlessly between European Union member Ireland and the U.K's Northern Ireland post-Brexit.
Rees-Mogg, the head of an influential eurosceptic group of lawmakers, announced he had submitted a letter of no confidence in the Prime Minister the day after she unveiled her draft Brexit deal.
Solicitor-General Robert Buckland said May told lawmakers at a meeting that "it is not her intention to lead the party in the 2022 general election".
Recent internal opposition to the prime minister has largely come from the right wing of the party, populated by those who wish to see the United Kingdom leave the European Union regardless of whether or not a deal is reached with the bloc. Many had expected her to join the wave of resignations that followed the publication of May's draft withdrawal deal.Mordaunt said she backed May in the confidence vote.
But European Council president Donald Tusk warned the bloc would not reopen the agreement secured in November after months of negotiations, with Brexit looming on 29 March.
The U.K. leader is facing a no-confidence vote that will see her removed as party and government leader if she loses.
As the prime minister arrived, her colleagues weren't quite sure of the result.
Anand Menon, European politics professor at King's College London, said May needed Brussels to make it "absolutely clear" no major concessions are on offer - no matter who is prime minister.
