Jacob Rees-Mogg, chairman of the Eurosceptic Tory European Enquire Group (ERG), emphasised that the voting taking place in the House of Commons at all events Theresa May’s motion and a handful of amendments. BBC’s Politics Live host Andrew Neil study out the Government’s motion which said: ”That this House dwell ons its support for the approach to leaving the EU expressed by this House on 29 January 2019. In effect, Mr Rees-Mogg said: “Frankly today is not important if today were impressive Rachel and I would be in the chamber of the House of Commons not in this studio.
“If it were a genuinely important day we would be in the House of Commons.
“This is buying an extra fortnight.”
The Public affairs Live host then queried why Mr Rees-Mogg would not let Theresa May’s gesture go.
He added why MPs don’t show Brussels that the House of Commons is capable of performing reasonably regarding motions that don’t have any real impacts.
Mr Neil then pointed how Mr Rees-Mogg was going to tell ERG members to vote on the motion.
The ERG leader moved: “I’m going to tell them that this motion does not de facto matter.
“So then you have a choice.
“Do you wish to vote for it, do you wish to abstain, do you sensible of that the bit that I have referred to earlier as more important.
“I’m not speedy to say what I will recommend.
“Because it is a courtesy to my members that I should determine them first.”
Theresa May’s main motion was voted down by a bulk of 54.
An estimated 30 members of the ERG decided to abstain from the vote show up diminishing support for the Prime Minister.
Theresa May now faces an uphill battle in going back to Brussels with European leaders expected to cow her into accepting the support of Jeremy Corbyn.
