UK LABOUR leader Jeremy Corbyn has today called a no confidence vote in Theresa May over Brexit. But what does this mean and how might it impact Brexit? Here's the lowdown... What does Jeremy Corbyn's vote of no confidence against Theresa May mean? Minutes before the PM stood up to make a statement on the disastrous EU summit she attended last week, Jeremy Corbyn announced he would bring a no-confidence vote in Mrs May before the Commons. This afternoon he threatened to call the vote if Mrs May refused to name a date for Parliament to debate her Brexit deal, only to change his mind after she did set a timetable. But hours later Mr Corbyn announced that he was tabling his motion after all in farcical scenes - and Mrs May was seen hastily walking out just seconds after he gave his speech. But in a bizarre twist, Mr Corbyn then dropped the idea less than an hour after floating it and didn't even mention it in his response to the PM. He again changed his mind two hours later and announced … [Read more...] about What does Jeremy Corbyn’s vote of no confidence against Theresa May mean and how could it affect Brexit?

Jeremy Corbyn has demanded a Commons vote on Theresa May's future after she confirmed a showdown on her Brexit plan would not take place before Christmas. The Labour leader tabled a long-threatened motion of no confidence in the Prime Minister after she set out the timetable for MPs to pass judgment on her deal with Brussels. The Prime Minister said the Commons would have the chance to debate her Withdrawal Agreement in the week MPs return to Westminster after Christmas on January 7. The crucial vote - which was postponed earlier this month to avoid a heavy defeat - will take place the following week. Mr Corbyn told Mrs May: "A responsible prime minister would, for the good of this country, put this deal before the House this week so we could move on from this Government's disastrous negotiation." He said it was "unacceptable" to delay the vote and confirmed he was tabling a motion "that this House has no confidence in the Prime Minister".

Jeremy Corbyn today called a historic no-confidence vote in Theresa May. Labour's leader made the move after the Prime Minister revealed MPs will not have the chance to vote on her Brexit deal until at least January 14. He declared he was taking the decision due to the "unacceptable" delay. But the vote he has called is NOT the same as a no confidence vote in the government - which could automatically trigger a general election. Instead the wording is "that this House has no confidence in the Prime Minister due to her failure to allow the House of Commons to have a meaningful vote straight away on the withdrawal agreement and framework for the future relationship between the UK and the EU." And it came hours after a to-and-fro earlier in the day where Labour sources said Mr Corbyn would call a no-confidence vote at 3.40pm only to back down and not do so.
