    According to the BBC (R4 World at One) the motion of no confidence does not mean he would need to step down but would force hime to rethink his leadership (and would leave him in an uncomfortable position), a letter signed by 50 MPs is required to invoke a motion of no confidence which would be binding in terms of if passed it would force him to step down.

    We're essentially like the US during the Bush years.

    Leavers will like to deny it but literally talk to any European and that's the impression you get.

    I think Cameron will have to go down as one of the worst PMs in British history. It's not that he was particularly vindictive in how he governed but that he seemed to make decisions with careless abandon without fully considering the consequences. The letter he wrote to his council leader complaining about cuts to council services really hit home for me how disconnected he is the ramifications of his actions.

    In all honesty, offering this referendum was extremely reckless. Such a complex and potentially catastrophic decision should not have been left to the general public. We live in a representative democracy and not a direct democracy for a reason.

    The fact that the Leave campaign were literally able to peddle lie after lie, mistruth after mistruth, was setting seriously dangerous precedents for British politics. I think one remain MP called it "Lies on an industrial scale". The moment I knew that we had reached peak insanity was when Gove came out with that line about how the British people were "sick of experts". Anti-intellectualism is one of the greatest inhibitors of human progress.

    That'll be pretty difficult considering how far Labour are from government. The North voted overwhelmingly to leave despite almost unanimous support for Remain in the PLP and amongst trade unions.

    Whenever the next general election occurs (likely before the full details of our EU exit are finalised), UKIP will essentially just press the immigration button and say you can't trust Labour to keep those damn foreigners out. The entire Northern working-class could essentially be unreachable by Labour. I wouldn't be surprised to see UKIP absolutely clean up in those strongly Brexit-supporting areas.

    The reality is that this country is going to drift rightwards and we'll no longer have the buffer of EU employee rights directives to protect workers. The situation is as bleak as it's possibly ever been. I've always supported Corbyn being Labour leader - that's not to say I haven't been critical of him on occasion - but his message of accepting immigration is poison to Labour's chances in the North.

    I don't really see where we go from here in all honesty. Brexit was always going to be disastrous for the left no matter which way you spin it. I've lost a serious amount of faith in this country and I don't know if there's a turn back dial on the far-right populist message we've seen emerge over this EU referendum campaign.
