Lol. You're just a Bucket of sunshine and flowers, lately, ain't ya?

We know in the US (traditional Americans anyway) that anything European is toxic, both to Europe and the rest of the world.  But see just above for a brief summary as to how this defeat is PM May's greatest success so far.

Yeah you're right, she'll probably stay pm.

I'd concider resigning, Tbh. Buy i don't think she will.
I don't think she'll stand down either; she still commands a parliamentary majority, however slim, and there's no way Labour can cobble together a majority or even a theoretically stable minority government.

What's going to be the interesting part of the vote will be the number of defections and abstentions -- if any and on which side.  Both May and Corbyn have serious back-bench problems and the vote may give some insight into whose are worse.

Yup, she survived. And the DUP immediately pointed out that if their bloc had voted differently, she wouldn't have. This suggests to me that the DUP plans to hold this over her head from this day forward.  If that's not a Unionist wet dream, having Westminster under their continual threat of blackmail... good luck, Great Britain. You're going to need it.

So Corbyn played his part, setting up a guarantee that PM May can't be challenged again for 12 months.  The law requires a new General Election in 5 years, but that means she is good until Summer 2021, more than 12 months away.

Meanwhile the EU will give Britain more time to come to its senses, but won't offer a better deal.  They expect a new referendum, and guarantees that the result will go their way, just like in the vote in Ireland to join the Euro in 2002, after previously being an EU member.

The key is that the Republic of Ireland will demand that N Ireland be turned over to them, to prevent the N ireland border "backstop".  After that the EU can help Scotland and Wales split from England permanently.  Reversing centuries of integration.
