Theresa May survived on Wednesday a vote of no-confidence organized by her Conservative Party, hostile to its Brexit agreement with Brussels, but with more than a third of MPs having disavowed, the fight is going to be fierce to pass the text decried in Parliament.

The British prime minister has won the support of 200 Conservative MPs, against 117 wishing to see her leave despite her concession to the Brexiters at the origin of the attempted overthrow she planned to leave office before the legislative 2022.

“The parliamentary party has confidence in Theresa May as the leader of the Conservative Party,” said Graham Brady, chair of the 1922 Committee, responsible for the internal organization of the Conservatives, where the secret ballot was held by at least 48 MPs Conservatives, the required threshold of 15% of the parliamentary group.

This victory, which pushed up the pound sterling, means that the Tories will no longer be able to seek to dislodge Theresa May for a year. But its short majority is also a snub.

Theresa May will participate on Today and Friday in a European summit in Brussels, which will still revolve around Brexit, where she will try desperately to snatch assurances from European leaders on the Brexit agreement to respond to the concerns of the British Parliament, wind standing against the PM.

The Brexit agreement is vilified both by the “Brexiters” fearing permanent stowage from the United Kingdom to the EU and by the Europhiles still hoping to be able to backtrack.

The conservative Brexiters, like Theresa May’s North-Irish ally, the small Unionist party DUP, are contesting in particular the so-called “backstop” or “safety net” solution which is to create a temporary single customs territory, including the EU and the United Kingdom, to avoid the return of a physical border between Ireland and Northern Ireland after Brexit.
