每日新闻更新 — 争夺领导权的时间到了The Daily Update – Contesting times

首相特蕾莎·梅今晚将面临对她的不信任动议的投票,现在有超过48名保守党议员(即超过所要求的15%)向1922委员会提出了申请。本周早些时候梅首相推迟了议会对这场徒劳的脱欧的投票,就像她在开车时一不留神拐错了弯一样,“坐在后排的驾驶员们”似乎现在要动手抢夺方向盘了。这种令人沮丧的投票行动看上去几乎是不可避免的,但它是否能够成功现在一点一不好说。这48名持不同政见者需要至少另外110名保守党议员与他们投同样的票才能达到所需的简单多数。

自该公告发布以来的几个小时内,相对于提出这次投票要求的不满梅首相的议员而言,已经有更多议员直言不讳地支持首相(或至少反对在此时投出不信任票)。推特里到处都是像杰弗里·考克斯(Geoffrey Cox)这样的支持首相的声明,“现在根本就不是选举党的领导人的时候,有些人就是喜欢瞎折腾。选举的结果不会改变任何事情的根本,这是表达忠诚首相并服从纪律以便让首相能够履行政府职责的时候。”这和梅首相今天早上在她对媒体发表的讲话是一致的;梅首相在讲话中说道,“现在改变保守派的领导将会把我们国家的未来置于危险境地,并在我们最负担不起的时候制造出一堆不确定性”。公众舆论似乎支持首相,根据在线投注赔率,在撰写本文时她转危为安的几率约为80%。

尽管如此,面对前方充满挑战的道路,无论哪一方胜出,充其量也只不过是一场得不偿失的胜利。此外,这跟1990年那场针对撒切尔的不信任投票有太多的相似之处;她虽在那次投票中获胜但还是辞去了职务,她知道无论如何她的领导就像一场没有舵手的航行。在剩余的几天谈判中,无论由谁掌舵,对于英国脱欧投票的前景,基本上可以用同样的言语来概括。

投票安排在今晚的6点到8点之间,刚好在保守党的圣诞晚会之前,这大概就是命运的残酷吧。如果这一会儿还有一份比梅首相的工作更没有吸引力的工作的话,那将是负责今晚安排座位的可怜的实习生的了;弄不好今晚的圣诞晚会要变成一场圣诞谈判。
