So Theresa May is talking about calling an early election. To get that she would need two-thirds of Parliament to vote for it. (This is assuming she doesn’t go the humiliating route of trying to pass a vote of no confidence in her own government).
Two-thirds of Parliament is 434 votes, which will probably require about 119 Conservative MPs to vote for it. Is that really going to happen? Can you really see 119 Tory MPs wanting to campaign for another election with Theresa May, the most hated PM ever, as leader? An election that will be held on the basis of promoting her zombie Withdrawal Agreement and trying to get it through yet again? With the WA in the manifesto? An election that will see many local Conservative constituencies and members refusing to campaign? In which many Conservative MPs will have been recently deselected (as has happened to the loathsome Dominic Grieve tonight)?
The TIGgers – or, as they are now known, the CUKs – are unlikely to vote for an early election either, as they’ll probably all lose their seats. Some of May’s cronies and suck-ups may come on board, but 119? In the midst of total chaos and disillusionment with the party? With Remainer MPs who know they’ll lose their seats, and who are consequently trying their hardest to stop Brexit before the scheduled 2022 election happens? May has become an insane leader who will destroy whatever she can to build her castles in the sky, with her strings pulled by a Remainer cabal of advisors who are all using her to ruin Brexit (not to mention the country and the Conservative Party, which they care not a fig for). The madness of King George had nothing on this.
