According to the Independent, the UK government is calling up reservists to help in the case of crashing out of the EU. They are to help with issues including wealth, health and security. The Daily Mail says they will be on standby in the streets in case of civil unrest. It seems that such unrest is seen as a possible outcome of shortages.

Jeremy Corbyn has made it absolutely clear that no-deal must not be an option. Theresa May is desperate to keep it ON the table, because she thinks that will give her blackmailing leverage to get people on board with her already-failed deal. She is playing dice with the public interest by so doing and we should applaud Corbyn for seeing through her ugly ploy.

I don't think there is much to disagree with there Doug but there is one thing that you have not factored in. May has been given the opportunity and has failed miserably. Corbyn has not yet had the opportunity. He could prove to be as bad but I doubt it and I am willing to give him the benefit of the doubt. Unlike brexit we could always change our minds after 5 years anyway :-)

I can't disagree with the critiscism levelled at the Prime Minister but the fact of her being bad does not make Jeremy Corbyn good. Immeadiately after the meaningful vote he said that Labour's position was clear. If the Labour Party have a clear policy on Brexit then I better look under the sofa and see if I can find it.

Both May's and Corbyn's styles are similar:- say as little of substance as you can get away with in the hope that you won't get the blame in the future and, once you have found a phrase that seems to work, repeat it as a mantra. I'm sure that Theresa May has tried her best and that Jeremy Corbyn is a man of principle but neither of them are strong leaders.

David Cameron made a promise he didn't think he'd have to keep to have a referendum he didn't think he would lose. Boris Johnson decided to back the side he didn't believe in because he didn't think it would win. Then Gove, who said he wouldn't run, did, and Boris who said he would run, said he wouldn't, and Theresa May who didn't vote for Brexit got the job of making it happen. She called the election she said she wouldn't and lost the majority David Cameron hadn't expected to win in the first place. She triggered Article 50 when we didn't need to and said we would talk about trade at the same time as the divorce deal and the EU said they wouldn't so we didn't. People thought she wouldn't get the divorce settled but she did, but only by agreeing to separate arrangements for Northern Ireland when she had promised the DUP she wouldn't. Then the Cabinet agreed a deal but they hadn't, and David Davis who was Brexit Secretary but wasn't said it wasn't what people had voted for and he couldn't support what he had just supported and left. Boris Johnson who hadn't left then wished that he had and did, but it was a bit late for that. Dominic Raab become the new Brexit secretary. People thought Theresa May wouldn't get a withdrawal agreement negotiated, but once she had they wished that she hadn't, because hardly anybody liked it whether they wanted to leave or not. Jacob Rees-Mogg kept threatening a vote of no confidence in her but not enough people were confident enough people would not have confidence in her to confidently call a no confidence vote. Dominic Raab said he hadn't really been Brexit Secretary either and resigned, and somebody else took the job but it probably isn't worth remembering who they are as they're not really doing the job either as Olly Robbins is. Then she said she would call a vote and didn't, that she wouldn't release some legal advice but had to, that she would get some concessions but didn't, and got cross that Juncker was calling her nebulous when he wasn't but probably should have been. At some point Jacob Rees Mogg and others called a vote of no confidence in her, which she won by promising to leave, so she can stay. But they said she had really lost it and should go, at the same time as saying that people who voted Leave knew what they were voting for which they couldn't possibly have because we still don't know now, and that we should leave the vote to Leave vote alone but have no confidence in the no confidence vote which won by more. The government also argued in court against us being able to say we didn't want to leave after all but it turned out we could. She named a date for the vote on her agreement which nobody expected to pass, while pretending that no deal which nobody wants is still possible (even though we know we can just say we are not leaving), and that we can't have a second referendum because having a democratic vote is undemocratic. And of course as expected she loses. Some people are talking about a managed no-deal which is not a deal but is not no-deal either.
Thank goodness for strong and stable government.

And, of course, she could get Corbyn involved very easily, by declaring that there will be no 'No-Deal Brexit' and doing whatever is necessary to extend A50. But, whereas Corbyn has acted in the interests of the countryi n order to try to prevent the likelihood of the undeniable disaster of Hard-Brexit, May is trying to use his decision to make Party-political capital.

A perfect example of the perfidy and deceit of May in particular, and her dreadful party in general.

An honest MP? I suggest you look into how he dishonestly breached parliament rules, and misused nearly £2000 of public money that furthered a campaign which was beneficial to his re-election chances. He was elected as a Labour MP then decided to sit as an independent, thus cheating the people who thought they were voting for a Labour government. There's a bit more murk around him too, yet to be resolved. I wouldn't buy a used car off him, that's for sure. I doubt whether Teribus would either.

Some of my friends mutter disgrace, I hear some of them tutting, I have to say that many of them have privately said “Thank God that you have got the freedom to actually not support this”. Because they are wrestling with their consciences of wanting definitely a Labour Government, knowing that the leader of their party is as unfit to lead the country as he was when they voted against him in the no confidence motion of the party those years ago."

There speaks an honest MP!

This debate is entirely about whether the Tories are up to the job.
I think it's more about whether the conservative MPs want to keep their well-paid jobs. I doubt that many (if any) will vote to say that their own party is incompetent. With the active support of the DUP the vote seems a foregone conclusion.
Any Conservative MP who voted against their own party would likely be de-selected by their constituents for the next election (whenever)


There is a fair amount of truth in that, Nigel, but of course it applies to every confidence vote (on the government), for any party, at any time. There is nothing special about this one, in that respect: self interest is always a significant aspect. Occasionally, an MP 'sniffs the wind' and thinks the movements under way mean that there could be a change of leader/direction coming, and their long prospects at better supporting the new rather than the old, but that is pretty rare.

I (and if I read him rightly Steve) think Corbyn did not want to call the confidence vote at this time, because he then has the difficult problem of what he does next. I have heard some comments saying that just because Labour does not get a general election this time, it does not mean they won't on another occasion, so they will stick with the 'try for a general election' strategy.

Strange though it might seem, the chances of a no deal and of a second referendum have both increased. That's what happens when other options are eliminated or become less likely.

No deal is hanging its hopes on the fact it can only be stopped by amending legislation, which is true. And that legislation must identify something else to do. But they are wrong in claiming that needs to be a new deal proposal: things like a new referendum or a request for an extension could also do it.

Take away the payroll vote of 140, and this means Theresa May had the backing of around 50 Tory backbenchers on the central policy of her government.
Surely the 'central policy' as per the Conservative manifesto is that we will leave the EU. The compromise Mrs May was putting forward would not have got us out, so voting against it was the correct thing to do.
The size of the majority would have been because Brexiteers would vote against it as it is 'BRINO' (Brexit in name only), while Remainers would have voted against it as they do not want Brexit in any form.

All the pundits were projecting that Mrs May would lose. It was only the size of the loss that was surprising.

The no-confidence motion will be lost. I have a feeling that Corbyn didn't want to call it right now, but was forced into it by May's intimation that she would accept a motion from any party, not just the official opposition (which is the only source of the motion she is obliged to accept). Say the SNP had jumped in with the motion instead of Labour and May had accepted. That would have made Labour look vacillating. She is gambling on winning this and wants it out of the way as quickly as possible, not hanging over her for days. She has good advisers.
