After a crushing Brexit defeat, the government of PM Theresa May survived a no-confidence vote, so it seems for now, the chances of a general election triggered by the recent anger over Brexit confusion have faded. Lawmakers in the UK – the lower house of parliament – the House of Commons, voted to defeat the motion raised by Labour Leader and Socialist Jeremy Corbyn by 325 to 306.
Votes of no confidence in the government from Labour, Welsh and Scottish nationalists, the Liberal Democrats and the Green Party were not enough to break down the sitting government. Right after the vote has finished, May said that her government would continue to work to deliver on Brexit – it was her duty to find a way forward that was approved by the House.
From now, May will be forced to focus on Brexit and not on a general election. She now must put together a deal that would please both UK subjects and lawmakers in Europe as well as keeping a promise on the 2016 referendum result. The British public and law makers want a deal that will protect the British people while being a member of Europe…….Norway has a solid system that is flexible enough to please the people.
The Left Wing Socialist and sometimes Marxist Corbyn will put his ideas forth in the coming weeks and months to hammer out some sort of joint deal – May will have her hands full. May will now discuss options with different parties and start work on a new deal or in the very least, a more workable deal for lawmakers to agree upon.
