"This house does not have confidence in Her Majesty's Government."

How many MP's were lying when they voted on that motion?

Discuss:

Doesn't matter. The conservatives or rather the 1922 mob, tried last month to remove the PM, and failed. But the rules say they cannot challenge again, for a year. Therefore Corbyn's question was basically asking turkeys to vote for Christmas. Not going to happen.

So, the real answer to your question, is none, because all the conservatives, and the DUP, voted for to stay in their jobs.

The snow front has reached Yorkshire, and England is turning into Narnia while the White Witch is still on her feet.

Walking to school in the snow, sleet & ice - not forgetting the "infamous" London smog. The changing priorities in nearly 6 decades is fascinating. :-)
The soft life
Wonder what the priorities will be 6 decades hence

If you laid all the politicians arguing about brexit end to end they would never reach a conclusion.

Phew, thankfully just a pit stop

Let's hope the return pit stop will be in Germany. Pretty sure frau Merkel will welcome him. :-)

...yep, 100m to "Brexit consultants", 13.8m to companies with "no maritime experience or ferries",
Just wondering who is next to receive such "windfalls"?

More likely to get the midnight prize from the Bulletin of Atomic Scientists.

Meanwhile, only around 7% of MP's attended a debate on climate change. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1iSWlus1UwMa3XcbuNLFGc05VTlZspUkWYIU7KPzs1Ew/edit#gid=0

There was one quote from last week that was particularly memorable I thought. About Theresa May.

Made by Nicola Sturgeon.

'... the only leader in living memory that tried to fall on her own sword and missed'

Of course she was also the only one of the party responsible for this, who didn't leg it to a distant horizon somewhere... preferably with a beach... after their "good idea" to win an election, but as a round-up of recent events, it really was rather excellent.

I wonder how much more quickly they would come to an agreed solution if all the bars in the commons were closed down until they do?

Ah, never ending Brexit, the perpetual motion machine that doesn't ever move. :-)

Having sent off my postal vote, I can now engage in my annual ritual of engaging canvassers for the other parties at length when they turn up.
