Labour’s narrow by-election victory reveals deep chasm in UK

Nigel Farages Brexit Party hopes for first UK lawmaker in Peterborough vote Labour’s narrow by-election victory reveals deep chasm in UK

"This result shows that despite the divisions and deadlock over Brexit, when it comes to a vote on the issues that directly affect people's lives, Labour's case for real change has strong support across the country".

Results were announced in the early hours of Friday morning, with Labour candidate Lisa Forbes having won the by-election in the Brexit-supporting constituency which had voted 61 per cent in favour of Leave in the 2016 referendum.

The Peterborough election saw the Tories slump to third place, behind victors Labour and the Brexit Party, in a seat which had traditionally been a Conservative-Labour marginal.

Eleven Conservative MPs are vying to replace her as party leader and, ultimately, prime minister.

Nearly a dozen Conservative lawmakers are already jostling to replace May in a contest that formally opens Monday, vowing to succeed where she failed and renegotiate Britain's divorce deal with the European Union.

She failed to get the withdrawal agreement her team reached with Brussels through the parliament.

Set up just two months ago by former UK Independence Party leader, Nigel Farage, the Brexit Party is leading national opinion polls. The victor of the election will be announced in the week beginning July 22, and will take over from May as the next prime minister.

May remains acting party leader while the contest takes place.

The final two candidates will be put to a postal ballot of about 160,000 Conservative members, with the victor announced the week of July 22.

Despite failing to win the seat, the Brexit Party's lead over the Conservatives will increase the pressure on those running to replace May to pursue a cleaner break with the bloc.

May formally relinquished her leadership in the private letter to her party on Friday.

He champions a tougher stance on Brexit, saying Britain should leave with or without a deal by the new deadline of October 31.

May will remain in office as a powerless caretaker prime minister until the leadership election is concluded likely late next month.

The selection process involves the 313 Conservative MPs whittling down the nominations to two.

The main beneficiaries have been Farage's Brexit party, which advocates a hardline Brexit, and the Liberal Democrats, who have taken up a pro-Remain platform.

None of them have actually said that the United Kingdom is going to ditch the withdrawal bill, start again, try and do a better deal, because that's of course what the Tory Party wants, and they are actually walking away from this aspect of a no deal Brexit, which would be the most beneficial option for the United Kingdom to actually make Brexit mean Brexit.

June 7, 2019: May due to formally step down as Conservative Party leader.

Boris Johnson, the bookies' favourite to inherit the Tory crown, also used the defeat to forward his campaign.

Gove said he hoped that the disclosure would not prevent him being appointed the next Prime Minister.

"I have done everything I can to convince MP's to back that deal".

Whether it is Johnson, Hunt or one of the other contenders, political experts view Brexit as a poisoned chalice. And Parliament has repeatedly voted to rule out leaving without a deal, though it's not clear how lawmakers could stop a prime minister who was determined to do it.
