      Jeremy Corbyn has failed to force a general election after rebel Tories and Democratic Unionist MPs backed Theresa May’s government in a vote of confidence just a day after rejecting her Brexit deal.

      Labour’s motion of no confidence, which was tabled on Tuesday night, was defeated by 325 votes to 306 – a majority of 19.

      May gave a statement immediately after the result was announced, saying her government would “continue to work on the solemn promise we made to the people of this country to deliver on the result of the referendum”.

      She invited the leaders of all parties, including Corbyn, to meet her to discuss Brexit, and confirmed she would make a statement to parliament on Monday, setting out her plans for leaving the European Union.

      Would love to be a fly on the wall if/when Corbyn ever got the opportunity to wipe the floor with conservative “positions.”
