  • May wins confidence vote

    Brexiters want to run the vote again.
    But, of course, you can't just keep voting until you get the answer you want.

    The whole thing is disappointing to both sides. I think the brexiteers bit off more than they could chew.

      how easy is it for parliament to do a vote of no confidence?
      2/3 or a simple majority or what?

        Apparently it's 15% of the leaders own party must write a letter of no confidence to trigger a vote:

        So 48 letters were needed

          wow...thats like nothing.
          seems easy to get ousted if you piss off your party.

          we call our version impeachment( it is also not just for the sitting president) and it is not an easy thing to do and even then it doesnt always have the desired results.

            I think Impeachment is more about an official committing an offense (treason etc.). This is more that the party members have lost faith in the direction of Teresa May's strategies.

              Yeh, this wasn't Parliament trying to oust May, this was specifically her own party, or more accurately, a small number of her own party, trying to replace her.
              Although apparently, according to Britain's leading Brexiter, having 60% of the vote go in your favour still means you lost.

                to impeach mean to charge a high government official(prez, senator, federal judge, etc) with something wrong.
                it can be treason but in most cases it isnt.
                states do it far more often then the feds; states just had one august of 2018 and the feds you have to go back to 2010.
