Division Lobbies

It is interesting, in its way, to hear from potential Conservative rebels over Brexit. But there do not need to be any. 

The entire Opposition, even including the DUP, is now lined up against whatever Theresa May brings back. So there would be no Commons majority for it, even if every Conservative MP voted in favour of it.

How many might not? For the majority of Conservatives to vote against the Government, then 159 would have to do so. That is simply not going to happen.

The figure is going to be fewer than one third of that, which will be fewer than one sixth of the total. Against every non-Conservative MP, bar none.

Another General Election is coming, between a Conservative Party most or all of whose MPs will have voted for a Chequers-based deal, and an Opposition all of whose MPs, without exception, had voted against it.

Another hung Parliament is coming, as would now happen regardless of when or why a General Election were held, and we need our people to hold the balance of power in it.
