May Survives Confidence Vote – but snap General Election looms

Prime Minister Theresa May has survived the vote of no confidence. Here are the results:

200 voted for the Prime Minister

117 voted against the Prime Minister

She needed 159 votes to win. As it is a secret ballot, it is not very clear who voted against.

This is still devastating news because the DUP still won’t be supporting her Brexit deal, and won’t be supporting any other deal she musters up most likely. She might have to survive another vote of no confidence in the House of Commons – which again, she will most likely lose without support from the DUP, including Tory rebels who want her out.

A snap General Election is the next challenge Theresa May will have to survive.
