Confidence vote: Opposition parties must work together at next election to remove government

The Prime Minister has won a confidence vote in his leadership by 211 votes to 148, taking 59% of the vote. 

The chair of the 1922 Committee called the vote this morning after the the threshold of 15 per cent of the parliamentary party had been reached.

Responding to the outcome of the vote, Cary Mitchell, spokesperson for better democracy campaign group Best for Britain, said:

“This country needs leaders we can trust, be proud of, and who can give our trading relationship with Europe the impetus we so desperately need. 

"As our broken system continues to keep this divided Government in power, but with no vision for the country, it is essential that opposition parties work together at the next election to remove this Government.”
