Theresa May Stay
Theresa May might not be stepping down after all. Her promise to go was based on a Commons vote approving her withdrawal agreement with the EU.
It now looks as though her deal is still dead in the water. Northern Ireland's DUP has announced it will not support a third motion on the agreement which is expected to leave May short of votes.
That said, Speaker Bercow has ruled again that the government may not bring the agreement back for a third vote without some substantial change.
It's now thought that this parliamentary meltdown may lead to a general election in which the public may punish the Tories for bringing the UK to this impasse. An election would be a vote on which party the British people want to negotiate a new trade deal with the EU.
