Corbyn calls vote to remove May – as no deal Brexit advances

It will be at least four weeks until the House of Commons votes on Theresa May’s Brexit deal. The Prime Minster confirmed to MPs that the debate on her deal will restart when they return to Westminster after their Christmas break.

The Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn accused the Prime Minister of wasting time.  In protest, in the last hour, he put down a motion of no confidence in the Prime Minister as an individual, but it is unclear when that vote might be held and how it might threaten the survival of the government.
