Unic Press UK: The member of Parliament under the Labour Party may be pushing for a vote of no confidence in Theresa May’s government as early as Tuesday, a report says.
A senior shadow cabinet member said: “There is now recognition that we cannot wait any longer. If May goes down to defeat and she does not resign and call an election, this is the moment we have to act,” The Guardian wrote Saturday.
If Corbyn delays a vote of no confidence, then the most likely route would be that a senior Labour MPs would table it before Parliament in a measure aimed at ensuring the current leadership accepts to conduct another referendum.
The Guardian added that Angela Smith, Labour MP for Penistone and Stocksbridge, said: “The time for prevarication is over. If May’s deal fails, we have to test the will of the house and if we fail, we must consider all options including campaigning for a second referendum as this is party policy.”
It was on June 23, 2016 that the United Kingdom voted to leave the European Union with 51.8% [more than 17.4 million of the total votes]. Thereafter, on March 29, 2017, the UK Prime Minister, Theresa May inked a letter, which triggered Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty, thereby formally declaring that the UK would exit the EU.
The Brexit agreement between Theresa May’s government and the European Union has yet to be approved by the UK Parliament.
