the Defeat on Tuesday night to prime minister Theresa May in the british parliament was in many ways historic.
It takes Ole Helmersen, who is an associate professor specializing in modern british politics at CBS (Copenhagen Business School).
- If you must play on the violin, so we go the culmination of 40 years of disagreement and contention with the conservatives in relation to Britain's membership of the EU, he says.
He adds that the development 'almost looks like a meltdown' in Mays conservative party.
Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has tabled a motion of censure against the government. The vote will take place on Wednesday evening.
- Corbyn has long talked about the fact that the conservative government ought to step aside. Now challenged the May him, and he responderede wish for a vote.
All the signs according to observers, that May win mistillidsafstemningen, and Ole Helmersen estimates that the Jeremy Corbyns role will get more attention going forward.
- the Labour and Corbyn have been lying in the shelter of the melting in Mays conservative party for a long time. But I think that the arrow begins to point more and more on Corbyn. He has repeatedly said that he has an alternative plan, but have never really wanted to say, what it means.
the Probability of a new parliamentary election is not the big, mean Ole Helmersen. But a new referendum is perhaps not unrealistic.
- I think that the debate will show that also the Labour members internally disagree. Corbyn prefer not a new vote, and I think he will be challenged by his own on the point.
432 voted against, while only 202 voted in favour of the Mays appointment for an exit of the EU. It is, according to The Times the biggest defeat, a british government has a bit of a vote since 1924.
118 out of the 317 from the Mays own party turned tomlen down to udtrædelsesaftalen and thus emphasized the huge divisions internally among Mays troops.
- You can say - if you cut completely to the bone - that she has lost control of his own party, when 40 percent of her own party voting against her appointment, says Ole Helmersen.
