Erik de la Reguera: Therefore clinging on to May's hold on power


Many have spoken about it, when it comes to Theresa May. And there is not any doubt that May feel personally responsible to take the Uk out of the EU.

From the very beginning of her project, which prime minister built on that she is a guarantor for the result of the referendum in 2016 to be respected, to the United kingdom leaving the EUROPEAN union and that it happens in a way that corresponds to what May see by yourself that the will of the people.

But after the sensitive historic defeat in parliament, it is hard not to ask herself the question: when to shift pliktkänslan in blind arrogance?

a defeat of this magnitude led to an immediate crisis in government and a new election. 432 members voted no to the Theresa Mays agreements – only 202 yes.

It is the largest förlustmarginalen for a government in modern british history. The previous record was 166 votes – in the year 1924 during the labour leader Ramsay Macdonald's minority government.

The new record is: 230 votes margin, in the year 2019 during the Theresa Mays of first.

the Headlines in the british press reflects the disaster that this is. "A complete disgrace", roars The Daily Telegraph. "No deal, no hope, no clue, no confidence", reads the Daily Mirror förstasidesrubrik.

obviously failed miserably. She has in recent months focused on bridging the gap on Brexit in his conservative governing party, the Tories. But in Tuesday's vote was the gap larger than ever: 118 of 315 Tory members voted against the prime minister's agreement. In addition, voted in favour of the government of northern ireland was to some extent due DUP no.

Now, open the May instead of the cross-party calls. But seriously open the door for Labourledningen. The talks should be held with groups of individual members, and focus on concrete and realistic amendments that can make it possible to get through the agreement, according to May.

clear of it? Is there enough trust?

No, says the labour leader Jeremy Corbyn. He demands that the prime minister resigns and announces new elections. However, May refuses and despite the fact that many conservatives are critical of her handling of the Brexit, the one thing they want to avoid above all else: to help the leftist Corbyn to power. Most of the evidence suggests also that May will pass in Wednesday's vote of no confidence, albeit by a narrow margin.

Why leave then, not Theresa May, of his own accord? She wouldn't have to hand over to Corbyn – another, and for her far more attractive option would be to hand over to another conservative politician.

the Problem: it would probably involve a time-consuming as heartbreaking partiledarstrid in the Tory – and with just over two months left to Brexitdagen march 29. For Theresa May, it is simply not a realistic option right now.

to ask Brussels for a postponement of the EU-exit. But she is also well aware that the opposition now will actively start to drive the requirement for a second referendum. Even some members of the liberal faction in her own party are attracted by the idea of a new referendum. But May feel that it would be a betrayal of the earlier of the referendum results.

instead, she stands firm in that she prefers a avtalslös Brexit if not a new utträdesavtal can be reached. It is the only way to maintain the british faith in democracy, it seems Theresa May to reason. And should the country be run into the unknown without a contract, then the country needs a chauffeur.
