After facing global humiliation in historic defeat of Brexit deal, British Prime Minister Theresa May on Wednesday (Jan 16) narrowly survived a no-confidence vote in a British government by a 325-306 margin and immediately reached out to opposition parties to hold talks on a new Brexit plan.
“The government approaches these meetings in a constructive spirit and I urge others to do the same. “But we must find solutions that are negotiable and command sufficient support in this House,” she said.
The opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn moved motion of no confidence against Prime Minister Theresa May soon after she lost Brexit vote in the lower house of parliament. The vote of no confidence was on the cards for some time and Labour Party was looking for good opportunity to table it.
British lawmakers on Tuesday evening voted against the most controversial Brexit deal by 432 votes to 202 in a crushing defeat for Prime Minister Theresa May. Jeremy Corbyn, leader of the opposition Labour party, motioned for a vote of no confidence in the conservative government, which could trigger to a disorderly exit from the EU or even to a reversal of the 2016 decision to leave.
