Results of no confidence vote in May expected soon

MPs from the DUP and Conservative MPs who belong to the pro-Brexit European Research Group (ERG) have both reportedly said they will support the government in the vote. The only way May loses is if her own party members decide to vote against the government, i.e. shooting themselves in the foot.

UK Prime Minister Theresa May's plan to enter into cross-party Brexit discussions without the official opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn, has been widely condemned by MPs and political commentators on social media. We'll vote against the Labour party's confidence motion.

Predictions that up to 40 Labour MPs in Leave-voting seats could end up backing the withdrawal agreement to avoid no deal but also deliver Brexit have not come to pass.

Labour Leader Jeremy Corbyn will open the debate on the motion at 12pm.

The House of Commons would then have to vote on whether or not they now had confidence in the new government.

The British Government needs to explain how it intends to proceed with Brexit following the defeat of Theresa May's plan in the Commons, the EU's chief negotiator has said.

Mrs May told MPs it was Parliament that made a decision to put the question of European Union membership to the people, "and now Parliament must finish the job".

Ian Murray, the Labour MP for Edinburgh South, said: "It was always going to be near impossible for the no confidence vote to be successful, as the parliamentary mathematics remain in the government's favour".

She said she had just held constructive meetings with the leader of the Liberal Democrats and the Westminster leaders of the Scottish National Party and the Welsh party Plaid Cymru.

In the United Kingdom, the leader of the ruling party is the prime minister.

EU officials said the United Kingdom could, for example, abandon its determination to leave the EU customs union and centrally regulated single market. If no progress was made within the period agreed, we would leave.

"You can't go back and change the beginning, but you can start where you are and change the ending", the former Dutch foreign minister said.

The apparent sidelining of the Labour leader has provoked heavy criticism from some notable MPs, particularly those so-called "senior politicians" the PM could be potentially seeking out for talks.

She said extending Article 50, the legal mechanism taking the United Kingdom out of the European Union on 29 March, to allow time for an election would mean "delaying Brexit for who knows how long". The DUP is enraged by her Brexit plan, so it's not a given they would support her.

He said Mrs May meant to retain her "red lines" - ruling out Labour's demand for a customs union with the EU - with sources suggesting compromising on this would risk cabinet resignations.

Different shades of Tory Brexiteer also have numerous other objections to the deal, including paying a £39billion divorce bill to the EU without any clear direction on the type of future trade relationship, and the (albeit-limited) role for the European Court of Justice in the United Kingdom after Brexit. Or in the current extraordinary circumstances, some sort of cross-party alliance for a soft Brexit might be formed. We want to see the Conservative government continuing to deliver on Brexit.

The key objections to May's deal surround the Irish backstop, which maintains a free-flowing border between Northern Ireland and the Republic if the issue is not solved by a free trade deal.
