Despite Losing Vote for Brexit Plan, Prime Minister Theresa May Wins Confidence Vote…

After losing a key vote to advance her Brexit plan, the U.K. Parliament held a confidence vote.  Despite the lost vote 24 hours earlier, British MPs voted 325 to 306 affirming their confidence in May’s government.

Prime Minister May delivered remarks on the past two days from 10 Downing Street.

      Not a Brit, but here’s my understanding. She’s undermining BREXIT (the recent vote against BREXIT was so lopsided because it wasn’t what BREXIT supporters wanted and the establishment doesn’t want it at all) but she survived the No Confidence Vote because she’s establishment and undermines the BREXIT vote.

        Parliament is full of pro-EU remainers (mainly globalist elitists in all parties, especially the once-patriotic Conservative party). Bar a few noble souls, these parlimentarians are completely detached from the plebs, the majority of whom want out from the corrupt EU superstate (aka empire). The demos want to retain their democratic right to kick out useless politicians, but the politicians prefer to bow to Brussels dictat instead, thus breaking the whole system of representing the interests of British voters. EU technocrats are neither elected nor removeable by plebs, and are widely loathed . Pressure’s building relentlessly, populism is growing, and this will likely be a long fight. Yellow vest protests have begun and will surely intensify greatly as the elitist revolt against the people’s will unfolds. Less clear is if the UK will exit before the EU collapses, as all previous multi-national, multilingual, controlling superstates have always done (think Austria-Hungary, Czechoslovakia, Yugoslavia, the USSR).

      May’s ‘deal’ that she got from Europe was utterly terrible and would have meant that the EU still controlled the UK and still decided when it left. It was the worst deal imaginable.

      100 or so Tories rightly rebelled and it lost massively.

      Those same Tories have no desire for Corbyn to be PM and so got back on-side for the No Confidence vote.

      Now 4 options:

      1) Leave with no deal – govt follows the will of the people who voted
      2) Leave with a better deal – unlikely to get one from Europe but still an ok result if they do
      3) Revoke Article 50 and stay in EU – utter betrayal, call for Guy Fawkes
      4) Postpone the leave date – kick the can down the road past Mar 29th, nothing is solved, highly likely

      It’s still all up for grabs, the globalists (May included) are still trying to deny the will of the people.

      My understanding is that if she had lost the confidence vote, there would have been a new general election, possibly soon enough for a new parliament to cancel the impending article 50 exit.

      From reports that I’ve read, a major reason for surviving the confidence vote is that the pro-Brexit minority parties voted against the deal, but for keeping the current government.* Their calculus is that May is less dangerous than the risk of an anti-Brexit parliament after a general election.

      From May’s recent statements, it seems like her priorities were 1) bad deal, 2) no deal, 3) no Brexit. If there had been a new election, Labor probably would have won, and they prefer 1) no Brexit, 2) bad deal, 3) no deal.

      Unless May is downright treacherous the latest developments put the UK on track for a no-deal Brexit, which would put trade between the UK and the EU under WTO rules until/unless they negotiate a deal.

      Farage thinks that May was trying to please both the Brexit voters and the Remainers and her deal was a misguided attempt to stay in while leaving. A man cannot serve two masters.

      * Note to Americans – the Parliament system is different. Parliament appoints ministers to head up departments, and a Prime Minister to oversee the lesser ministers. These ministers are what is meant by “government” in the context of Parliamentry politics. People dreaming that the Queen is going to “dissolve the government” refers to sacking these ministers, etc When no party has the majority, the larger party often gives one or more smaller parties ministerial posts that they want in return for support for the rest of the slate.

        A couple quibbles:

        National elections would not have automatically followed a successful no confidence vote. The vote was technically a challenge to the government and not to May. Had the Conservative/DUP coallition government lost, it would have had 14 days to select a new Prime Minister and attempt to withstand new (there can be a series of) no confidence motions. However, you appear to be correct in that even the added chaos of forcing a PM change, with a March 29 deadline staring the MPs in the face, was too perilous even for that crowd.

        It would be a mistake to think of “pro-Brexit minority parties,” as there are severe leave/remain divisions within the parties, adding to the divisiveness over the terms of Brexit for those MPs in favor of Brexit generally. (And in fact, all the parties in the Commons are minority parties. The Tories could not have formed a government without Northern Ireland’s DUP.)

      bofh,
      May’s plan was fool the electorate into thinking we would leave the EU.
      To this end she had passed legislation earlier that would indeed mean that we would “technically” leave the EU on 29th March 2019. What wasn’t highlighted was the agreement in her plan to “rejoin” by accepting access to the “free market” and more importantly belonging to a version of the “customs union” all for a giveaway price of 39 BILLION pounds.
      The customs union is the real devil in the detail, basically preventing the UK from signing any trade deals with anybody while a member. The catch was that membership wasn’t optional, it could only be cancelled with EU approval (not likely as the EU wants the UK to remain).
      This is why the vote against the plan was so large – remainers thought there might be a way round the membership problem (bless them), while all those wanting Brexit couldn’t see any way of leaving, so both sets voted against.

      The vote of no confidence was a slam dunk. Do you want a rubbish right wing government (like the GOPe) or do you want a communist government led by comrade Corbyn et al.
      The Conservatives and their allies (DUP) joined to beat the no confidence vote.
      Hope this helps.

      Here’s a good post from a brit (not me) explaining why Brexit remains inevitable:

      Anyone thinking that we’re inconsistent, or giving up, or will ever give up, is kidding themselves.

      We would have been out of the EU a decade ago, but Blair and Cameron broke the principle of candidate selection by local party management, and imposed shortlists of approved candidates from the central party offices. This was an attempt to prevent infighting and create a consistent message to make the parties electable after the disasters of the Foot and Kinnock election attempts in the 80’s and 90’s (Labour Party), and Hague, Duncan-Smith and Howard in the 00’s (Conservative Party). The Burkean ideal was shattered by this and therefore the MPs simply do not even reflect the views of the ordinary party members of the Labour Party or the Conservative Party, let alone then ordinary voters. This is why there is a huge disconnect between the referendum result and the views in Westminster.

      However, the EU issue, which had resulted in the defenestration of Thatcher to enable the Maastricht Treaty, simply wouldn’t go away – precisely because there was such an establishment consensus on staying in the EU. The party leaders on both sides took the view that they could ignore it because, “where else are our voters going to go?” Well, eventually, after trying almost every other option first to make the traditional Burkean arrangement work, the voters decided to go elsewhere.

      May 2014: We voted UKIP as the largest party in the EU elections. Cameron realised the Tories were toast in the general election unless he offered the UKIP voters a reason to return. (Kippers are 2/3 Conservative and 1/3 Labour.) He thought he could promise a referendum and then bargain it away in negotiations with the Liberal Democrats.

      May 2015: We voted Cameron a majority so that he couldn’t bargain away the manifesto commitment to an EU referendum. The Remain campaign’s pollsters told them they were going to lose at the start of the campaign by 52-48: “You do have a positive case for staying in the EU, don’t you?”, “Err… no.” Seriously, that’s what the pollster said they replied when he asked them!

      June 2016: We voted to leave, by… exactly what was predicted the previous year. The EU is like Hillary – everyone’s opinion was already formed, and publicity campaigns were never going to change anyone’s mind.

      June 2017: Theresa May wanted a huge majority, and projections were that she would have had easily enough Conservatives to win last night’s vote. But she got arrogant and blew it by stepping on the 3rd rail of British politics: The Alzheimer’s Tax, as it was dubbed. She demonstrated she couldn’t be trusted and so we ensured that she was hamstrung; precisely to achieve exactly the result of last night.

      Of course Brexit was always going to be this way. It was always going to be trench warfare to get out. It was obvious from the EU’s negotiating position on 28 March 2017, the day before Article 50, that there could never be an agreement with the EU. We could never accept those terms. Even if the quisling politicians accepted them, we would simply repudiate them later using the 1970 Treaty of Vienna.

      The EU seems to persistently operate under the fantasy that any British government can make commitments about the future. It can’t. The most fundamental principle of the British constitution is that no parliament may bind a future parliament. The EU keeps want us to be bound to unchanging commitments, which is an axiomatic impossibility, because we would later unbind ourselves.

      On the matter of EU citizens saying that they don’t trust the British government in the future, well “Why are you even here if you don’t trust us? Because you are indeed talking about a future government that the British would choose.” The EU citizens are a bit like the Brits that move to the USA, and can’t cope with the fact that they do things differently there. We’re not Europe. We have a common law system with fundamentally different concepts of law and the relationship between the citizen and the state. And we drive on the correct side of the road.

      If there is another referendum, we’ll vote to get out of the EU in exactly the same numbers. Channel 4 News presenter Jon Snow went to Leeds to interview 18-20 year olds who hadn’t voted in 2016, and was astonished to discover they were more adamant about Brexit than the older voters. It is always a false conceit of the left that they are the future, which I guess is why they are now run the world over by a gerontocracy that looks like the Chernenko regime overseeing the May Day parade, such as Pelosi and Corbyn.

      Theresa May won’t authorise another referendum. It would open the door to referendums on other topics the progressives want to avoid. How about a referendum on the death penalty, abortion, abolition of the concept of asylum, or any other deplorable topic? How about another Scottish referendum? Sturgeon certainly wants it. That could open the way to an English independence referendum. The Welsh are terrified of that idea. How about a 3rd Brexit referendum? There isn’t going to be another referendum on anything, ever, if the establishment can prevent it.

      Even if they manage to stop Brexit for the moment, it will remain the central issue of British politics until we are out of the EU. Nothing else is getting done in government. Brexit occupies 100 percent of government CPU capacity. They can’t wish Brexit away, much as they would like to. If this attempt to leave is stopped, then the electorate will do precisely what Cameron was trying to prevent and abandon the two main parties in order to achieve Brexit.

      A prospect that I think would be really hilarious is if we are prevented from leaving, and then a Salvini-Orban grouping takes control of the EU parliament and selection of Junker’s replacement. There will be new commissioners nominated by the governments that have taken power since 2014. I can see British Remain supporters suddenly horrified: “We didn’t mean to stay in THIS EU, we meant to stay in the Merkel-Macron version!”

      On a grander level, this is like the 1945 C.S. Lewis novel That Hideous Strength where Britain is covertly conquered by an apparently benign European bureaucracy. But the fact is that the problems are really caused by the Franco-German addiction to empire building on the European continent. We only went to war against Napoleon, the Kaiser, and Hitler because they went empire building in Europe, not because of any unpleasant domestic activities they may have engaged in. Establishing the empire peacefully is still an empire and people are still going to resist. Nationalism is sticking within your own borders. It is the Westphalian solution. It stopped the Thirty Years war. It is the path to peace, stability and prosperity.

        Britain is and has been toast. Just a matter of time now for the US as well. I mean, why is that not clear to everyone? They’ll be no “revolution”. Oh, the Yellow Vests in France are burning cars, but do you think Macron and the EU cares? NO, they do not care. They will wait it out.

        I suppose there’s some value in “talking” about how angry one is getting and how one can “only be pushed so far” and “cold anger” and “come and take my guns”…but it’s all just talk. It’s too late for a revolution. The spy state is fully installed and gets more efficient as it gets more invasive.

        The Globalist have been this for at least 100 years…as JFK pointed some out 35 years ago:

        “For we are opposed around the world by a monolithic and ruthless conspiracy that relies primarily on covert means for expanding its sphere of influence — on infiltration instead of invasion — on subversion instead of elections — on intimidation instead of free choice — on guerrillas by night instead of armies by day.

        It is a system that has conscripted vast human and material resources into the building of a tightly-knit, highly efficient machine that combines military, diplomatic, intelligence, economic, scientific and political operations. Its preparations are concealed not published. Its mistakes are buried, not headlined. Its dissenters are silenced, not praised. No expenditure is questioned, no rumor is printed, no secret is revealed”.

        You don’t think they’ve stopped or can be stopped at this point do you?

    “Philip Hammond [Chancellor] told business leaders that the “threat” of a no-deal Brexit could be taken “off the table” within days and potentially lead to Article 50 “rescinded”, a leaked recording of a conference call reveals.

    The Chancellor set out how a backbench Bill could effectively be used to stop any prospect of no deal. He suggested that ministers may even back the plan when asked for an “assurance” by the head of Tesco that the Government would not oppose the motion.”

    The Brits haven’t come to the point of enlisting another Churchill to salvage their civilization… Not YET.

      Churchill was an imperialist. The Brits need to find an authentic non elitist leader who can fight against the UK deep state.

        All it takes is ONE; possibly someone who has been ‘in’with the elitists, until he decides to break with the elitists, and go populist/nationalist.
        Not just PDJT, we see it in Hungary, Poland, Italy, Brazil, even Mexico; a Populist/Nationalist can be an elitist, regardless which ‘face’ they purport to represent, every time.

        This IS a worldwide rejection of globalist elitism, or elitist globalism.

        Should Brexit occur, hard or soft, which freed up Britain to make independant trade deals, I should think PDJT would make a decent trade deal, fairly quickly.

        Does that enter all into deliberations, I wonder?

        Funny, no yellow vest movement protests in the countries listed above.

    It looks like EU got married all together without a pre-nup. This shows the fallacy of “surrendering your sovereignty” as Merkel recently said Germans must. How do you get it back when you realize globalists aren’t interested in your needs or rights, that “Climate Change” happens everyday from Noon to Midnight, and every year between solstices, and every age between tropics and Ice, and isn’t a scientific theory at all, just a reason (Oh, it must be stopped!) to manipulate foolish or corrupt leaders into joining the Children’s Crusade (whereupon they all went to the Middle East and were sold off as slaves).

    I’ve become ever more convinced that the wisdom of America’s founders – to retain sovereignty to individuals and their local and regional governments, while ceding checked and balanced authority to larger organizations only for specific purposes, and with constraints on their power equal to preventing them from becoming oppressors, is even more relevant today (despite the drum beat of “wise” child crusaders claiming the constitution doesn’t work anymore). It works just fine, and this is its greatest test. John Adams was a keen student of Roman history (as were other founders), and sought to ensure that America would remain a Republic, which Rome failed at.

    PM Churchill once opined that his Nation, which brought civilization to much of the world, could possibly continue “for a thousand years.”

    Well, counting back to their birth in 1066, it’s sad to say they ALMOST made it.

      Excuse me? “Their birth in 1066?” Some of us of ENGLISH heritage would say that 1066 was our DEATH!

      That was the date of the NORMAN CONQUEST. It was the destruction of the English Kingdom of Wessex. It was the end of the independent monarchy of England ruled by Englishmen speaking English for 400 years.

      No, it was not the “birth” of Churchill’s “nation.”

    The 40% in favor of Brexit are the WORKING CLASS; they actually DO something; load or drive a truck, work in a warehouse, etc.
    THEY HAVE POWER

    The 40% against brexit, they work in offices, shuffling paper.
    They move #’s around.

    The 20%, they do what, not even vote, most of time, no opinion on anything?

    General strike would demonstrate,who has power. Its just a matter of collectively reaching a pschycic point;

    The “There is some sh*t up with which I will not put!” moment.

    The yellow vesters in France reached it with the fuel tax, but as always, it was just the straw/camels back, it was the trigger than COLLECTIVELY turns cold anger, long simmering, into HOT anger;

    Detirmined, selective and not to be denied. No western government can stand against the will of its people.
    Its like trying to hold back the ocean.

    She is in the absolute worst possible place someone can be in, first of all she has no leadership qualities at all, and is faced with a situation where only a true leader would be able to get an amicable outcome. On one hand, they need a clean Brexit because the people voted for it, on the other hand if she does a clean Brexit, their economy is going to be ROUGH for awhile because the E.U. out of spite is going to screw up all their European trade deals and any other ones they can convince allies to screw up.

    A leader like Trump could handle it and navigate it. She’s not 1 /10th of the leader Trump is. She’s going to try to kick the can down the road and get an extension from Brussels which is just going ot make it worse and draw out the suffering.

  23. It’s all just delay delay delay. Meanwhile the UK is still in the EU. The country will just continue this way, stuck in an infinite loop. Especially if the parliament votes to delay Article 50, which is a very high likelihood. Then Remainer May will pretend to negotiate a new “deal” with the EU that is even more awful than the last, then parliament votes it down again, and around and around it goes. Brexit will never happen because parliament is corrupt and financially vested in the EU. But they’re disgusting cowards too. They don’t have the stones to rescind article 50. So this state of limbo will go on to infinity.

  24. Isn’t this the best possible outcome?

    The UK will exit the EU without paying the EU; absent the agreement trade between the two will be governed by the WTO, and the exit will happen for certain on March 30th????

    Consider everybody is reading the whole thing completely wrong. The PM looses the BREXIT vote due to opposition from both sides of the issue (pro and con) but survives No-Confidence because a socialist will be the next PM.

    Before making the following statement, I am dead set against the EU having worked in the UK since 1990 and witnessed the entire evolution of the current EU congress along its unelected fascists-socialist path.

    The alternative explanation nobody wants to touch is that BREXIT would fail in a new referendum, if one accepts a socialist would win any new elections. Nigel Farage et al can whistle past the grave yard all the want. The ugly truth is socialism has regained an upper hand especially among the young and predisposed immigrants, as it is on the ascendancy here in the US for the same reasons. To aide in the ascendancy of socialism, the “conservatives” support it by the self destructive blindness to anything that disturbs their social status among the ruling elite.

    I happened to be out for lunch with friends yesterday and turned the radio on in the car on the way home and it was tuned into Rush. He predicted the result of the no confidence vote before it was held, making the relatively simple observation that she wouldn’t lose because the people voting weren’t in favor of brexit, plain and simple. She hadn’t forced them to vote for it so why would they bounce her out of her job. For Rush, that was shooting the proverbial layup.
