Still PM by 19 votes.

I think they have til March 29th to sort this Brexit mess out. The stories using stealth scare tactics (mixed in with patriotic hyperbole which in turn was fueling xenophobic attitudes against immigrants, many who have a legal right to UK citizenship) to get people to vote leave has backfired massively. If the UK are booted out of the EU with no deal in place I can't look beyond putting the blame solely on the Conservative government. Cameron set the whole ball rolling and bailed out. They say Labour left a note in the Treasury saying they spent all the money but what the Tories are potentially doing is much, much worse. Since the UK doesn't have any real valuable exports, the Tories again shut down the shipping, mining, majority of factories etc so again it's essentially their fault.
