Speaking shortly after the vote, Mrs May accepted that a “significant” number of Tory MPs had voted against her but said she now wanted to “get on with the job”.

Sir Graham Brady, chair of the 1922 Committee of backbench MPs, was met with cheers and applause as he announced the result to a room of press and MPs.

But rebel Tories immediately claimed the result was a ‘terrible one’ for the PM and called for her to quit.

Sir Graham Brady announced that the party ‘did still have confidence’ in Theresa May.

Brexiteer Jacob Rees-Mogg said Mrs May should resign “as soon as the Queen has a moment in her diary to see her”.

He added: “It’s a terrible result for the Prime Minister, it really is.”

Opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn said: “Tonight’s vote makes no difference to the lives of our people.

“The Prime Minister has lost her majority in Parliament, her government is in chaos and she is unable to deliver a Brexit deal that works for the country and puts jobs and the economy first.”




Mrs May, who has vowed to stand down before the 2022 general election, had needed 159 votes in her favour to win the ballot and stay in power. After the vote, she said a Brexit which “brings the country back together rather than entrenching division” was needed.

“That must start here in Westminster with politicians on all sides coming together and acting in the national interest,” she added. – Yahoo
