No confidence vote against the PM soon.

It was revealed on the news this morning that from a labour spokesman that there would be a no confidence vote against the Prime Minister soon.

It seems all other political party's have agreed to this so just a matter of waiting to see how the prime minister deals with the brexit question and whether she keeps to her deal only.

It does not look like her deal is going to survive and if so she has 3 days on which to ammend her deal.

A way out of it maybe be to stand down and let another Tory party Mp be PM.

Obviously a new general election maybe called for but maybe a case of out of the frying pan and into the Fire comes to mind.

Just when we thought things could not get any worse it looks like it will.

Myself i think the EU is trying there best to keep us in the EU and it is a warning to other countries not to try it.

So the only way out of being bullied into accepting something that none of us want would of course be a no deal. Any other deal and there is only one winner and it is not us.

Looks like this saga is going to continue for years to come and with the country split down the middle it is not going to be easy to resolve.

No party that takes us out of the EU or keeps us in will never be popular for a long time.

No matter what Party it is there will be no winners in the long run.

Just a thought. If the UK were to tell Northern Ireland to go it on their own. There would be fewer problems

What we needed was a strong Government with an overall majority of PM's to make their own minds up in which direction to take.

Instead of that we have a weak and Wobbly Government who is getting pulled in all different directions and is getting pulled apart at the seams.

Will they manage to get any big Bills passed through parliament is the question. If not they only have one option. Another general Election.

The results could actually be worse than what we have just now.

I think the PM actually thinks she is doing a great job and is trying to hold on to the leadership of the Tory Party like Jeremy Corbyn did with the labour Party.

maybe last nights vote might make her think otherwise but I doubt it.

We think things are bad now. methinks it can only get worse.. Whatever the deal every one is not going to be happy with it.

Basically the future is looking a bit bleak and we have the same thing on the news this morning, Big Business wants this or that, it was the people who voted for brexit so it should be up to them and not big business on how we go forward.

Actually getting fed up being told by Big Business and by the EU what they want us to do. We voted to leave , So lets go with the No deal scenario.

Northern Ireland to go it on their own

I would imagine who follows them would be the problem. Scotland would be a yes. Wales a maybe. or they could join with the South of Ireland and be a country again. But dont think that is going to happen

Don't forget about Gibraltar in all this, they also stand to suffer from Spain coming onto them with a harder than hard ball game plan with a no deal result.

So no, telling the NI-ish W here to go isn't a solution whether serious or not.

Maybe an English independence letting the other constituent members of the UK do as they freely choose might be the solution!

"If the UK were to tell Northern Ireland to go it on their own. There would be fewer problems"

In one respect perhaps, but telling Northern Ireland to go it on its own is unthinkable - when asked in a 2016 survey, around half the population identified as British.

The Belfast agreement acknowledged the importance of what is called 'The principle of consent' and it was agreed that there would be no change in the governance of Northern Ireland without the consent of the majority of its citizens.

The Northern Irish Assembly has a narrow Unionist majority. However, at the moment, and for months, they have not met, and the Province has been run by civil servants. Only 10 of their 16 MP’s attend Westminster- the other 6 won’t attend as they refuse to swear allegiance to the Queen. McDonnell, in particular, if in government, might find a way for these 6 to attend and support a Labour Government. However, any attempt to impose a union with Eire would trigger a civil war an NI that would be a catastrophe.

“ at the moment, and for months, they have not met."

Two years this week. Which just emphasises how hopeless Irish politicians are to allow them any influence in the UK Parliament at this time!

Maybe Sir Humphrey should take over Westminster for a year or two! Junker and Humphrey would sort things out with no need for democracy to interfere.

Is it too early to start building a "Beautiful" Hadrian's wall and getting the Scots to pay for it?

It shouldn't cost too much as the original foundations are still in place!
