Prime Ministerial Confidence Motion

Post by Harry Hayfield » Wed Dec 12, 2018 1:56 pm

In a vote called for by 48 Conservative MP's, the Prime Minister was subject to a confidence motion today where all Conservative MP's were able to vote. The motion was passed by 200 MP's to 117 MP's and although the Prime Minister won and cannot be challenged for another year, she conceded that she would not lead the party into the next general election (due in 2022) but would not be drawn on the subject of a snap election caused by the Brexit process.
