Securing Electoral Accountability

The central question in British politics today is whether the UK should leave the EU on 31 October with or without a deal or should instead apply to the EU for an Article 50 extension. The policy of Her Majesty’s Government is to leave on 31 October and not to apply for an extension; the House of Commons does not support this policy, which is the central policy of this Government, but the House has nonetheless held back from formally withdrawing its confidence in the Government.
