The Labour Party will table a new vote of no confidence in Theresa May’s government this week, if her ‘meaningful vote 3’ on her dismal deal fails on Wednesday as expected.
With even Tory MPs now signalling the end of their tolerance for May’s ongoing farce, the vote is likely to be tighter than it was on Labour’s first no-confidence move, but the odds are that enough craven Tories will still support the government even as they work to undermine it for their own preferred options – and the ‘Tinge group’ of MPs are almost certain to prop up May to maintain their desperate grip on seats they know they will lose if there is a general election.
Labour will take every step available to prevent both May’s botched Brexit deal and a ‘no deal’ outcome – but it’s still entirely likely that May will choose to pull ‘MV3’ when she sees that she will lose it and gamble everything on what should have been ‘MV4’ on 26 March, as failure this week might result in Speaker John Bercow refusing to allow another try on the 26th.
