A Frankensteinavtal – so-called labour leader Jeremy Corbyn the utträdesavtal that the british government negotiated with the EU, and which was voted down by a historically large margin earlier in the week.
In the back had Corbyn, not least in the british press, which has gone very hard to the May after the loss. ”A complete disgrace”, braskade the Daily telegraph's förstasidesrubrik, while the Daily Mail as a matter of fact, found that: ”She's fighting for her life”.
– If a government can't get new laws approved by the parliament, then it must go back to the people and ask for a new mandate. And there can be no doubt that what we have here is a zombie government, " said Corbyn in the face misstroendeomröstningen.
of the opposition parties, the liberal democrats, the scottish SNP and The greens. But it wasn't enough. The 128 members of the ruling party, the Tories and its to some extent due DUP, which on Tuesday was with, and did Mays agreements, now stood once again in the prime minister's side in parliament.
– It is no secret that Theresa May and I often disagree on issues relating to the EU. But I am a conservative, first as last, " said Marc Francois, one of the ”brexitörer” that saved Mays government.
Now, says Theresa May faced a difficult, perhaps even impossible, task. The latest on the Monday of the next week, she must submit a ”plan b”, according to the timetable adopted by the parliament in the last week. Then it will be debated lively in the additional a week.
"I will invite the leaders of the opposition parties for a call, with the start tonight," said Theresa May, after the vote.
actually, May now when she will try to gather a majority for a Brexitavtal?
until now she has primarily sought the support of their own. It was the most normal thing for her, then they own the votes of the members constitutes regeringsunderlaget together with the northern ireland, unionist party, the DUP and its ten seats.
as late as the onsdagseftermiddagen met May the leadership of the DUP, to ensure its continued support. She got it – but not without consideration:
" Lessons must be learned from what happened in parliament. The problem with our backup plan is going to northern Ireland in the agreement must now be solved, " said the DUP's Arlene Foster.
recent weeks have shown, it is to this adaptation to the most EU-critical votes in the parliament is a dead end.
the EU will hardly agree to ditch the controversial our backup plan is going (”backstop”) of the agreement, such as the DUP demands. The irish prime minister, mr Leo Varadkar was on Wednesday, very clear that this can only be the case if London opens for a continued membership in the customs union or the single market.
– It is up to those who voted no to utträdesavtalet to show us how we should be able to avoid a hard limit. It is they who have the ball. We have always said that if the Uk is able to move from their red lines for membership in the customs union and the single market, then we would be able to touch us also, " said Varadkar.
in the parliament, it is not impossible that it is possible to build a majority for a new Brexitavtal based on a continued membership of the EU customs union. Labourledningen belong to those who would see it as a good basis.
But it means in this case more bitter pill for the prime minister, May. She has so far opposed the continued membership in the customs union, because it makes it impossible for the Uk to stop new trade agreements – now if you are not able to negotiate themselves to any far-reaching exceptions.
in Order to secure a majority for such an agreement May also likely to the support of the Labour party. Then they have to sit down and talk. But Jeremy Corbyn said on Wednesday night that he first wants a guarantee that there won't be a avtalslös Brexit march 29.
at all possible. For if May give a warranty risk the rumble in there own party and in the DUP grow to a roar – and lead to her falling in another vote of no confidence.Link to the graphics
