If the deal is rejected by parliament I'm going to be elated in some ways but very worried in others. If the deal is accepted by parliament I'm going to be disappointed but relieved. Funny how that works. Either way, we wait with baited breath...

Result is out. The deal is rejected by 432 votes to 202 - the biggest government defeat in history, according to the BBC.

Sorry for a double follow up. Corbyn has just called a vote of no confidence tomorrow. He is pretty much shouting...

Can we have a vote of no confidence in Parliament, and just let half a dozen captains of industry, and a few respected people from the military, education etc take over

It's just ridiculous... she and other politicians keep bleating on and on about how they are must deliver on the result of the referendum and they seem determined to do so at all costs. This will affect 100% of Brits, not just those that voted for this madness, so they would be perfectly justified in calling it all off, but they just can't see it. Mrs May is like Javert in his relentless pursuit of Jean Valjean, she is so obsessed with delivering Brexit that she had become blinkered and obsessed and she has lost sight of what is truly important. The referendum that was held is exactly like allowing a load of six year olds to vote on their school's teaching policies and school budget; they would have little understanding of the implications of it all.

Honestly it's not just parliament. The "will of the people" rhetoric is pretty ubiquitous in certain parts of the press, and for that matter among at least roughly 50% of the population.

 

I think Corbyn made a big mistake by calling the no confidence vote just after the result. The DUP will back the government. They've already said so. And it makes sense - if they don't, they're voting themselves out of power and influence, as there won't be a conservative-DUP coalition next time - or at least that's pretty unlikely. So the only way the no confidence vote could pass is if a handful of conservatives vote against their own government, and that's highly implausible.

 

So May will win tomorrow and that will take the sting off this defeat, handing back some momentum to the government leadership.
