And does this trigger a general election , or just another person to become PM ?

I think only the leader of the opposition can call a vote of no confidence in the government and convention means they should call a general election.Then there is a vote of no confidence in the PM that's called by members of their own party, if they lose they quit.

I have to say that is absolute rubbish. So wanting to stay in the EU makes you a racist bigot? Of course not as leaving the EU doesn't. Typical name calling from children not liking other peoples opinions. Isn't that racist bigotry. How ironic.

It's called a piss take.

I couldn't see that in the post but now you mention it, that would make sense. Have a good day.

Totally agree but as  I have said for a few years she was a remainer, didn't believe in Brexit and did a great job for the EU. You could speculate that she was an EU plant.

EU plants and Hard Brexiteer vegetables.

Having listened to a lot of today's discussions, I'm now able to clarify something that has confused a lot of people, myself included. The questions:

 

1. If a Brexiteer PM is installed (presumably Boris), how can they talk about a no deal exit when there is not the parliamentary arithmetic to support no deal?

2. Can Parliament stop the PM from sitting on his/her hands and running down the clock to 31st Oct?

 

As I now understand it, Theresa May chose to have that series of votes in Parliament about blocking no deal, 2nd ref etc. She didn't need to do that. 

Also when Parliament then voted for the UK to apply for an extension, apparently that was not a binding vote so May was not obliged to take that to the EU. 

 

So in other words it seems if a true Brexiteer becomes PM and says that our default position is no deal, we will leave with no deal on 31st Oct unless something better is negotiated.  



 

Unless I'm wrong that's very bad news for remainers!  

 

It's actually bad news for the entire UK.

Boris Johnson? Do we really need a serial liar as PM?

He doesn't lie, he's just economical with the truth like all politicians.
