I do not understand why Mrs. May does not resign, or, more exactly, why she does not HAVE TO resign.
I understand the British Constitution is unwritten, but if the House will not (twice) accept her work on this most important issue, they surely lack confidence in her and her government.
. they surely lack confidence in her and her government.
They do. What's more, her government lacks confidence in itself. However, the last thing any faction of a deeply divided Tory party wants at the moment is a general election or a party leadership election: so if Corbyn were to force a confidence voted it would (again) get voted down.
At least that's how it looks tonight - but in this truly weird situation, anything might happen. May could even choose to leave the sinking ship rather than go down with it, but that's unlikely: in all things she's the Middle England vicar's daughter - you jolly well have to grit your teeth and see through whatever dirty job you're given.
Power hungry. As my uncle used to say, “She really thinks she’s something on a stick!”
Any one with any honor would do so. These female leaders don’t seem to have that kind of honor, they cling to power.
She does not have to resign because she WON the “no-confidence” vote a month or so ago. We’ll see, but right now it appears that poor Britain is just going to muddle through this for a while longer. Brexit ought to have been accomplished months ago, in my opinion - and forget the mess that the EU is forcing upon the UK. The quicker they get out now, the more quickly the recovery will be done.
Because May and most of the Tories supported Remaining in the EU and are doing everything to make sure that happens. I won’t relax until it officially happens.
“why she does not HAVE TO resign.”
Nobody else wants to be holding the bag when Brexit occurs - bit of a hot potato.
