The Prime Minister has won the vote of confidence in her leadership of the Conservative Party.  Results: 200 in favour –  117 voted against.

PM made a statement outside Number 10 following the result.  She’s happy she won but had no problem saying out loud that some MPs were against.

Theresa May says she wants to get back to work.

About 48 letters from Conservative MPs triggered the vote held Wednesday December 12.

The result was greeted by cheers and applause from Tory MPs as it was announced by backbench Tory chairman Sir Graham Brady.

She had a busy day rounding up support from her MPs.   PM needed 159 votes to win.  She got 200.

Theresa May supporters urged the party to move on.  But critics warned of a stalemate over finding an acceptable Brexit deal.

What did you make of today’s events.  An amazing political development in the country.  Been a long time since this kind of turmoil has taken place.  First female Prime Minister, Margaret Thatcher had similar problems. She was forced out when John Major took No 10.

Will Theresa May survive?  She may have won today December 12 but there could be struggles ahead.
