Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Am I to understand that there is neither majority nor interest in a confidence vote to boot Mdm May?

Am I to understand also that there is neither majority nor interest in tabling another referendum ("people's vote", "Having our say") on the question.

The usual suspects are silent today --"white out" of news on HoC conspiracies appears in effect.

The DUP and ERG have consistently voted confidence in May when Corbyn has tabled votes of no confidence. They are terrified of a general election right now.

All indicative votes supporting a second referendum have been defeated in the HOC. That is why the EP elections will effectively become one by default, despite all efforts by the Tories to prevent it or pretend it isn't happening.

The "white out" is due to fact that the HOC is in recess.

With Halloween the new Brexit deadline, MPs head off on holiday

After the European Union agreed to delay Brexit by six months to end-October, European Council President Donald Tusk pleaded with Britain: "don't waste this time". Hours later, British lawmakers are heading off for a more than week-long Easter break.
Parliament usually has a six-week break over the summer and almost a month off in late September for the political party conference season, meaning lawmakers will not be due to be in parliament for close to half the Article 50 extension period.

"Cancel the villas in Tuscany and get this mess sorted out," said one Twitter user, Rob.
