Parliament has voted against Theresa May’s withdrawal agreement AGAIN. Will she resign?

MPs have voted against Theresa May’s withdrawal agreement, with 286 votes in favour and 344 votes against it.

The zombie prime minister has been defeated yet again.

Mrs May says the legal default is that the UK leaves the EU on April 12 – not enough time to ratify a deal, and Parliament will not countenance leaving without a deal.

The UK will now most likely go into a longer extension of Article 50, and be required to take part in European Parliament elections in May.

The inertia dogging the UK will continue to hold us in its grip for many months to come, it seems.

Jeremy Corbyn, leader of the Opposition, has demanded Mrs May’s immediate resignation and a general election to break the deadlock. He has been supported in this call by Ian Blackford, leader of the SNP in the House of Commons.

She won’t do it, because as a Tory she would never accept the possibility of losing power. But until she does, the UK will not have a functioning government.

The conclusion is obvious:

The problem is Theresa May. No progress will be made as long as she stays in Downing Street and denies democracy.

    If she chose to tender her resignation, of course, it would be up to the Conservative party to appoint a new leader and, therefore, prime minister; her resignation would not necessarily trigger a general election.

    Only someone with a sense of decency, honour and respectability would resign, May on the other hand……

    Her circle of friends has become an inward spiral leaving only her alone.

    Very true Mr Mike she’s a stubborn hag & will just dig her claws in no10’s doorway
    & hold on for dear life.. (kicking & screaming of course )

    If she chooses to resign it will not necessarily result in a general election as the Conservative party will have to elect a new leader who will become the PM

      I know. She may choose to call an election while still in the leadership – that’s what her MPs seem to be up in arms about. If she resigns and a new leader comes in, others will be able to say they don’t have a mandate and they may call an election to resolve that issue. Or not. If not, it would be hard to get a large proportion of the population ever to accept their actions regarding Brexit.
