Theresa May has survived a no confidence vote in her Conservative Party. She says she now has a renewed mission; “delivering the Brexit people voted for, bringing the country back together and building a country that works for everyone”.
Whether she has any troops willing to follow her charge is unclear.
Just 200 Conservative MPs voted for her to stay on as leader of the party; 117 voted against. Many of those who voted for her said they will vote down her Brexit deal nonetheless.
As a result of this challenge, MPs cannot call another vote of no confidence for 12 months, meaning that Theresa May will be the woman to succeed or fail in taking Britain out of the European Union.
Many questions are still unanswered by this vote. If Parliament looks set to vote down her deal — especially with so many in her own party apparently planning voting against her — where on earth will Brexit go from here??
