    British PM May’s leadership hangs in balance as three cabinet ministers resign over Brexit plans


    British Prime Minister Theresa May is scrambling for her political life after a day of high drama that saw three cabinet ministers resign, her Brexit strategy unravel and questions mount about her continued leadership, Paul Waldie writes. The drama started around midnight Sunday with the sudden resignation of David Davis, who had been leading the government’s Brexit talks with the European Union. In a letter to May, Davis said he could no longer support her Brexit strategy, calling parts of it “illusory.” Steve Baker, a junior cabinet minister in the Brexit department, quit Monday morning. Hours later, May was dealt an even bigger blow with the resignation of Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson. Johnson and Davis were strong Brexit backers and their resignations leave May facing a growing revolt within her Conservative Party caucus, which is bitterly divided between those who favour a hard Brexit and a complete break with the EU, and those who want the country to keep some economic ties to the EU, including remaining in the customs union.


    “There were suggestions on Monday that Ms. May’s government could be on the verge of collapse – an event that would trigger the third election in three years,” Doug Saunders writes. “But Ms. May is unlikely to depart soon, either by an internal Conservative Party leadership challenge or by a parliamentary confidence vote, in part because no popular figures within her own party seem willing or able to step up to the plate, and because the rest of her MPs fear the prospect of a loss to the Labour Party, itself almost terminally divided over Brexit.”

    Nothing like taking a big steaming dump at a party and then running away, like a little bitch, to avoid taking responsibility for your own shit.

    apparently the same principals have been working with a variety of governments and at multiple levels.

    Brexit - live: Theresa May forced to abandon crucial vote on her deal in face of near certain defeat

    Theresa May is set to make an emergency statement in the Commons after dramatically calling off a vote on the Brexit deal.
    Just minutes after Downing Street said the crucial vote was to go ahead on Tuesday evening, it was confirmed the prime minister would delay the showdown in the face of an intense rebellion from backbench MPs.

    May vows to fight with ‘everything I have got’ as party rebels trigger confidence vote over Brexit


    British Prime Minister Theresa May is facing a vote of non-confidencein her leadership of the Conservative Party, a move that could see her immediately removed from office. Conservative Members of Parliament will vote on whether to keep her as leader Wednesday evening, and if she doesn’t win a majority she will have to step down as prime minister. “I will contest that vote with everything I have got,” she said. “A change of leadership in the Conservative Party now will put our country’s future at risk and create uncertainty when we can least afford it.”

    British parliament votes down Theresa May’s Brexit deal; opposition to table non-confidence vote


    British Prime Minister Theresa May’s Brexit plan has been dealt a crushing defeat in the House of Commons, which voted 432 to 202 to reject the deal to leave the European Union. Opposition Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn promptly called a vote of no confidence in Ms. May’s government, to be held within 24 hours.


    The defeat was a humiliating blow to Ms. May who saw dozens of her Conservative Party colleagues vote against the agreement. It also means that with time ticking down before Britain leaves the EU on March 29, the government is no closer to reaching Brexit arrangements on a host of issues including trade, border controls, transportation and financial services.
