Here's Something Theresa May Probably Didn't Think About Before Cancelling Today's Brexit Vote

Speaking outside Number 10 Downing Street after the result of the vote was announced, Mrs May said she was grateful for the support she had received. The victor of the vote becomes Conservative leader and prime minister, without the need for a national election.

Members of Theresa May's Cabinet have come out to give their backing to the embattled Prime Minister.

He said: "I have been asked how I will vote tonight".

After Tory backbenchers made a decision to "take back control" of their party leadership, they will know that any replacement PM would face the exact same Parliamentary arithmetic and the exact same deadlock over Brexit.

After the 1922 meeting, MPs filed in one by one to cast their votes in a secret ballot.

May visited the Netherlands and Germany before heading to Brussels on Tuesday, a day after she delayed a parliamentary vote on the Brexit deal that she agreed with European Union leaders last month but which is opposed by many British lawmakers. But she could chose to resign if she wins support by a low margin.

Senior Tories believe Mrs May will win the vote tonight - but she is expected to announce that she won't contest the next General Election.

A leadership election "would not change the fundamentals of the negotiation or the parliamentary arithmetic", she said.

"Weeks spent tearing ourselves apart will only create more division", she said.

"I have devoted myself unsparingly to these tasks ever since I became Prime Minister and I stand ready to finish the job", she added.

They also recommended charges be brought against Elovitch, members of his family and members of his Bezeq management team. The prime minister compared his defense to Hanukkah, which celebrates "the victory of light over darkness", he said.

He said: 'I will support the Prime Minister in today's vote without hesitation.

"The Prime Minister has lost her majority in Parliament, her government is in chaos and she is unable to deliver a Brexit deal".

British Prime Minister Theresa May told her MPs on Wednesday she expects to step down before the next scheduled election in 2022, as she fought an immediate attempt to unseat her over her handling of Brexit by warning it could derail the process. Two members who were under party suspension for alleged misconduct prior to Wednesday were permitted to vote in the ballot.

May also claimed that a new prime minister would mean "delaying or even stopping Brexit" as they would not be installed in time to meet January's legal deadline on negotiations.

But while she was meeting European Union leaders in The Hague, Berlin and Brussels, MPs at home, exasperated at what they regard as her lack of leadership, were firing off letters of no confidence.

He resigned his Cabinet position in July in protest over May's Brexit plan, which he denounced as too soft and has since then eviscerated her exit strategy in regular columns for the Daily Telegraph newspaper. She said she has listened to them and that it is now time to get on with delivering Brexit. They say warnings of economic doom are exaggerated.

She then endured a clash with Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn in which she once again set out her stall on Brexit.

MPs will have the power to amend this motion, which could see Remainers and soft Brexiteers try to push-through a "Norway-style" close future relationship with the EU.

The challenge has been brought by Conservative MPs who think Mrs May has watered down the Brexit voters were promised in the 2016 referendum. MPs can get rid of May without having a replacement lined up. May's authority has been badly eroded along and it's doubtful she'll be able to secure a new Brexit deal that would win enough support in Parliament.
