No-Confidence Vote Against Theresa May Fails

For indispensable reporting on the coronavirus crisis, the election, and more, subscribe to the Mother Jones Daily newsletter.

As expected, the no-confidence motion against Theresa May failed, so there will be no snap election in Britain and no chance of the Labour Party taking control. Brexit has failed, but May is still in control.

The EU says May has to make the next move, and presumably she will make some kind of request to put off the March 29 deadline for Brexit. Unless she botches this request completely, I imagine the EU will accept it. The EU bureaucracy loves nothing more than kicking the can down the road in hopes that something miraculous will happen. And who knows? Maybe it will. In the meantime, we’re likely to have several extra months of time to panic.

Dear Reader,

This feels like the most important fundraising drive since I've been CEO of Mother Jones, with staggeringly high stakes and so much uncertainty. In "News Is Just Like Waste Management," I try to unpack the reality we all face and how we can rise to the challenge. If you're able to, this is a critical moment to support Mother Jones’ nonprofit journalism: We need to raise $400,000 to help cover the vital reporting projects we have planned, and right now is no time to pull back.
