  • Jeremy Corbyn moves motion of no confidence in the government

    Jeremy Corbyn MP, Leader of the Labour Party, moving a motion of no confidence in the government, said "Mr Speaker, I move the motion that this House has no confidence in Her Majesty’s Government.

    Last night the Government was defeated by 230 votes. The largest defeat in the history of our democracy. The first Government to be defeated by more than 200 votes.

    Last week they lost a vote on the Finance Bill. That what’s called supply. Yesterday they lost a vote by biggest margin ever. That what’s regarded as confidence.

    By any convention of this House, by any precedent the loss of confidence and supply should mean they do the right thing and resign.
