Theresa May's latest, and historic, Brexit defeat in the Commons last night led directly, and as expected, to the tabling of a no confidence vote by the Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn. Under the 2011 Fixed-Term Parliaments Act, the Commons will vote later today on whether they have confidence in the government. Should a simple majority declare that they do not, the house will be given 14 days to either form a new government or regain confidence through appropriate changes. In this case, the government can table a vote of confidence. If this is not possible, or the vote of confidence does not pass, government is dissolved and after a mandatory gap of 25 working days, a general election will be held. Should the government survive any of these votes, the status quo remains.
