Corbyn announces no-confidence motion in May

Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn announced on Monday a no-confidence motion in United Kingdom Prime Minister Theresa May. During his statement in parliament, the opposition leader explained that his decision to call for a motion was due to May's failure to conduct a meaningful Brexit vote right away, adding that delaying it until January is simply "unacceptable."

Earlier in the day, Corbyn stressed that the House of Commons "needs to move on with the vote and consider the realistic alternatives." He added that the prime minister "led us into a national crisis" with her decision on Brexit vote and highlighted that "there can be no further attempts to dodge the accountability of this government."

Meanwhile, May once again urged lawmakers to accept her withdrawal agreement as, even though it is not perfect, is the "best possible" option. She elaborated, saying the European Union is not willing to offer Britain another agreement and in case the UK rejects her agreement, it will either leave the bloc without a deal or remain in the EU.
