McGrath of Harlow BS: Brexit #3: A futile gesture? (4121* d) RE: BS: Brexit #3: A futile gesture? 22 Mar 19

MPs should go for a vote of censure against Theresa May. It would be a very fair response to her attack on them on Wednesday.

Those who detest her on the Tory benches won't vote for a no confidence motion because they are running scared of triggering the Fixed Term Act. But a personal vote of censure wouldn't risk that, since it wouldn't have the magic words required in the act. But with an overwhelming vote of censure from across the house even with her trying to hang on to her office it would be very questionable constitutionally.

Isn't it a bit daft using the term "Meaningfull Votes" for votes that are ignored by the government, and are as meaningless as could be?
