The Prime Minister is reportedly facing rebellion within her own party as backbench MPs begin to file votes of no confidence against Mrs May.

Senior MPs from the Brexit-supporting European Research Group (ERG) – chaired by Jacob Rees-Mogg – are reportedly readying to trigger a vote of no confidence against the PM.

Brexit-supporting MPs unhappy with Mrs May’s draft withdrawal agreement have already been vocal in suggestions she could resign.

BBC political editor Laura Kuenssberg said last night “Brexiteer anger” is driving backbenchers to take matters into their own hands – and this morning three Cabinet ministers have resigned, including Brexit secretary Dominic Raab....

While the "No Confidence" vote has not yet been made official, and still might not happen, the BBC is live reporting the situation.

What makes me much, MUCH madder is that Scotland voted to stay......700 years of slavery to England and when they have a chance to get the hell away from them - the idiots vote to stay with England.
Scotland is smaller than the state of West Virginia, which is large enough when it comes to the British Isles, but of no import when it comes to the whole of Europe. Shifting from England to EU rule isn't going to increase its influence. It's going to lessen it even more.

I'm Scotts.....I know how big Scotland is and I was referring to the never-ending "feud" between Scotland and England. They had a referendum to "leave" England and it failed....


Go Figure. I know that my extended family (all Highlanders) voted to get the hell rid of England.

In a humiliating climbdown, the PM was forced to admit that her deal - due to be voted on tomorrow - would be "rejected by a significant margin" by furious MPs.

She said MPs backed much of the deal she has struck with the EU but there was concern over the Northern Irish backstop.

She said she believed she could still get the deal through if she addressed MPs' concerns.

And that, she added, was what she intended to do in the next few days.

I mean, who could ever have imagined that putting a bunch of remainers in charge of Brexit would be a bad idea?

And the EU council president has given a hearty "fuck you" to Theresa.

The EU council president said 'time is running out' and made it clear the bloc is not willing to change the legal text of the agreement, including the controversial Irish border backstop.

And he delivered a thinly veiled threat by declaring that the EU will be stepping up its preparations for the UK crashing out of the bloc in March.

The intervention came after the PM humiliatingly delayed the Commons vote on her Brexit deal to avoid a catastrophic defeat.

Is it all Kabuki theater, designed to allow for a largely cosmetic "Brexit" that's not really anything like what the UK citizenry wanted, or is the EU really going to let May flame out?

Time will tell.

But senior Eurosceptics are more sure than ever that they have enough support to trigger a vote of no confidence in the prime minister. That doesn't mean it is bound to happen.

The last time they said so, and said so pretty publicly, their confidence was a mirage and the numbers did not emerge.

It became evident to ardent Brexiteers that their communications between each other were not all genuine, and painfully so. Those who had told colleagues that they had submitted the letters, patently had not done so.

What feels different tonight is that those who take this all extremely seriously, who had their hopes dashed the last time, are suggesting privately, not necessarily with glee, that they might have done it this time, and crucially if the list isn't long enough tonight, they have more MPs ready to join the calls.

Jubilant Eurosceptics claim they have secured the 48 letters from MPs needed to force a ballot that could end the PM's time as leader.

They believe former Cabinet minister Owen Paterson joining the efforts to oust Mrs May in the wake of her humiliating decision to drop a Commons vote on her Brexit deal has tipped the balance.

The chair of the powerful Conservative 1922 committee, Sir Graham Brady, is said to have requested a meeting with Mrs May after PMQs tomorrow lunchtime.

Only he knows whether the threshold has actually reached, and he never says how many letters he has received.

I don't see how the UK doesn't wind up giving up the pound sterling and becomes a full member of the EU after all of this.

The Telegraph's saying that she'll be informed tomorrow that the required number 48 no-confidence letters has been reached.

Owen Paterson, a former Northern Ireland and Environment Secretary who backed leave in the referendum, on Tuesday night wrote to Sir Graham Brady, the chairman of the 1922 committee of Conservative MPs, formally stating he had lost confidence in the Prime Minister.

Reports are that May has promised not to run again, that she'll step down before elections, and that she'll survive the VOC.

She needed to secure at least 159 votes from Conservative MPs - half the parliamentary party plus one - to remain as leader.

In hindsight, the rebel MPs are probably wishing that they'd waited until after May returned from her meeting with the EU.

Low, since this was just an intra-party vote. In all likelihood (according to reports), the current Brexit deal is D.O.A. when presented for a full vote. And, since the EU still insists that it will not change it, the odds are that May's Brexit deal is going to crash and burn.

And that's when we'll probably see the shit hit the fan.
