It was after that the prime minister, Theresa May made it clear that a vote on the utträdesavtalet with the EU will not take place until at the earliest January 14, Corbyn had enough.
" the Country is in a constitutional crisis as the prime minister has created. There are no excuses for further delays.
he came back and demanded a vote of no confidence on the prime minister. But – and this is an important but: the vote that Corbyn called for is not about the government as a whole, but only if the prime minister.
According to the british practice, the government has then no obligation to hold a debate in parliament with immediate effect. Several experts point out that misstroendeomröstningen on the contrary, may take time – perhaps long after the new year.https://twitter.com/cgwOMT/status/1074732619437367296
If the still is kept, and May lose it, this leads not automatically to any crisis in government – although of course it would be embarrassing for the prime minister.
But Jeremy Corbyn may have a tri-splatteral damage in mind.
to trap the entire government, it is required either that a considerable number of Tory members to put down their votes, or to government to some extent due, the northern ireland unionist DUP to vote against the government. Circle around Jeremy Corbyn seems to have made the assessment that there currently is not very likely.
this call for a vote on the Theresa May personally. Such have a greater opportunity to win support in parliament, since it would only mean a sermon by the prime minister. But the vote learn the delay, at the same time as the requirement gets a lot of attention in the media. And as long as the government does not let go until the vote, the Labour party assert that it is due to the ”May is afraid to lose”.
Step two in the Corbyns rocket at the power: to go ahead and demand a vote of confidence on the entire government (sources within the Labour party confirmed it on Monday night). When is it seriously – and can no longer delay.https://twitter.com/nicholaswatt/status/1074732445499617285
Step three: that the government lose this vote of confidence. It would not automatically lead to new elections, but Corbyn would have taken considerably closer to its goal – to become the prime minister.
the Future will tell if this game was realistic, or if the british just lost even more time in domestic intrigues on the road to Brexit.
