Theresa May Faces Another Defeat – How Many More Can There Be?by

Brexit, of course, continues to be the number one story on UK shores right now – it’s a hugely momentous occasion and one which was voted for by those who wished for Britain to leave the European Union – but as the past year has shown, untying legislation and existing motions in place that hold the UK and Europe together hardly make for an easy or quick process. Theresa May is the figurehead in the middle of it all, as the Prime Minister who will widely be remembered as the leader who oversaw the whole process – and also as the leader who put her own premiership in jeopardy after announcing a snap general election which effectively left her own party without many of their key seats.

Another day, another dismay – for Ms May – as it seems that even rebels within her own party have set back her plans to push through the ‘final’ Brexit deal, when it is announced, without MP approval. This move was denounced by several figureheads on both sides of parliament, meaning that Labour and Conservative representatives were keen to try and prevent a no-say measure going through. MPs voted in their droves to ensure that they would have a legal and final say on the deal represented in what is thought to be just over a year away – throwing aside May’s initial plans for ‘Brexit Means Brexit’ in rather spectacular fashion.

Some ministers, however, have stated that the amendment to the Brexit Bill – which was backed by a slim majority of 309 to 305 – is a ‘minor setback’ and that Brexit will go ahead as planned in 2019. However, there are further rumblings afoot – as it seems that some MPs are keen for the provisional date for departure, in March 2019, to either be cast aside completely or to be voted on – as discussions and meetings between the UK and EU in recent weeks have been reported in the press to have been spectacularly chaotic. It’s nothing short of entanglement – and for May, it’s another headache in a year that may go down as one of the most tragic for a UK leader.

May’s leadership is yet to be challenged despite her slender hold on UK parliament – with recent issues regarding Irish borders and the DUP – who are propping up the Conservatives to the tune of a hefty sum – having reared their heads lately. Where will it all end? May wants to be the PM that puts Brexit through in 2019 – but even for many of those in her own party, the clock is ticking…
