I have been doing a bit of research on oppsition votes of no confidence. The last one was in 1979. For those of us old enough to remember the country was in a bit of a state then. Rubbish in the streets, dead bodies laying in morgues unburied etc. I was wondering, are we as a country, in as bad a way now as we were then? Is it about time for another vote of no confidence? Obviously this motion has to come from the opposition benches and they would only do it if they thought they could win. The current Labour majority is as follows: A Labour majority of 65, if you exclude the Speaker, 66 if you exclude the Speaker and his three deputies, and 71 if you also exclude the 5 Sinn Féin MPs who did not take up their seats. So is it time to write to your MP (not Liarbour obviously) and see where the land lies?
