Convenient real-life timing, nice.

Bit harsh on a government who has barely done anything at this point though.

I do hope this joke item doesn't end up in division though.:mad:

Not necessarily a joke. The government do not have the numbers to comfortably get their business through the house, and this will prove whether they do or not. We need a stronger Labour led government!

You could've stopped at Labour. Let your party recover and grow first before trying to get into the demanding role of government. After all, you have just turned down the opportunity to be in government, which allowed this one to form.

It is a two week period. Two weeks have passed.

Government VoNCs are sent to vote by the Speaker, so unless actively withdrawn it will do.

That was the previous CLT which delivered a deal to Labour that many found unfavourable. The current Labour CLT would nae nae on the Liberals hard in any negotiations and we'd surely be in government in no time.

That in of itself isn’t much of a reason to submit a MoNC in a government
But please detail your reasoning for submitting one so early

I do not consider this motion worthy of a response at this time and look damningly on these signatories.

JMR2019., I strongly encourage you to withdraw this after a couple of days.

Wait, there's a current Labour Leadership? I'm sorry I had no idea.

It was an appropriate time considering the vote in real life . Furthermore whyever is that not much of a reason? If you do cannot command the confidence of Parliament then how can you call yourself a government?

Mr Speaker,

The Labour Party and the Liberal Democrats squandered their chance at a government 2 weeks ago!

Frankly, those two parties are so chronically lacking in activity they do not deserve the title of her majesty’s government, for heaven’s sake, the Labour Party is still yet to elect a new leader.

I will be voting against this appallingly timed, non-justified motion of no confidence and I hope to see my Libertarian colleagues join me in the no lobby.

Who says that we cannot command the confidence of the house? Will labour be able to convince all the Lib Dem’s to vote against the government? We’ve both seen multiple MoNCs in our time in the house, it would work a bit better to actually lay out more detailed reasons to do bring down the government

Reading that was a waste of my time.

If this ends up in division. I encourage MPs to vote no.

It will end up in division automatically unless the proposers withdraw it themselves.

This vote will prove whether you can or not. As I said, it’s fair to challenge the resilience of any government.

And you wouldn't do the same in your position? Any oppurtunity to take down a government you should seize.
