How Theresa May survived confidence vote after Brexit humiliation
Main opposition Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn called the vote after Tuesday’s crushing defeat for May over the EU divorce agreement — but her Conservative MPs rallied behind her and the government won the confidence vote by 325 to 306, staving off the threat of a general election
Theresa May comfortably won the no-confidence vote, by a majority of 19. The vote came after a debate which saw Jeremy Corbyn accuse her of leading “a zombie government”.
Tom Watson, the deputy Labour leader, closed the debate with a powerful speech saying May does not “possess the necessary political skills, empathy, ability, and most crucially the policy, to lead this country any longer”
