Is the UK facing new elections after no confidence call? Euronews Answers
Publisher:  Live Leak

What did Jeremy Corbyn actually do? The opposition leader called for a vote on the motion that "That this House has no confidence in the prime minister due to her failure to allow the House of Commons to have a meaningful vote straight away on the withdrawal agreement and framework for future relationships between the UK and European Union." He was reacting to Theresa May's decision to defer a full vote in parliament on the deal she has secured for Brexit, originally scheduled for last week, until the middle of January. What does the statement actually mean? Because Corbyn chose to target Theresa May personally, rather than her government, his measure is not considered an official No Confidence vote that could, if lost by the government, trigger a general election. Instead, it is a simple test of credibility. Furthermore, unlike a No Confidence vote in the government, it will not automatically be allocated time in Parliament. So will it happen? It seems not. Government sources have told British media that the move is a "stunt" and they will not make time for it to happen. Labour reacted by suggesting the prime minister was "scared". But the smaller opposition party, the Liberal Democrats, who do not have the right to call a No Confidence vote, suggested that Labour had failed to hold the prime minister to account. Didn't May just face a vote of no confidence? Last week the prime minister won the support of her own MPs after rebels in her Conservative Party attempted to remove her, following frustration over the content of her Brexit deal.

Ireland fears a return of border controls

The 500 kilometre border between the North and Republic of Ireland lies at the heart of the Brexit impasse. The greater Britain's independence from the European Union - the greater the risk that frontier controls will be introduced in a region that's become used to freedom of movement and doesn't want to give it up. After Brexit, this will be Britain's only land border with the European Union. There are real fears here that if Britain crashes out of the EU without a deal, a so called hard border will be imposed. "You put up physical infrastructure or what people can attack and the genie gets out of the bottle," says Damian Mc Genity. Memorials to the dead litter the borderlands. They were the scene of some of the worst massacres of Northern Ireland's long conflict. In one border village where dead gunmen are celebrated, a threat if Britain forces a hard border. "Do you really think we're going to have them coming in dictating to us again?," says a resident. "I would say, let's go back to war." War and economic collapse are the twin fears of the tight knit communities that straddle the border. "55% of our lamb goes south for processing," says farmer John Sheridan. "35% of our milk travels south for processing....that would be completely shattered. So our business could be ruined and the futures of our family and our children could also be ruined. It's that's serious? It's that serious absolutely!" Meanwhile thousands in Northern Ireland are seeking Irish passports in order to remain EU citizens. "We're delivering 6,7,8 times the normal volume of passports since the Brexit vote two years ago," says postmaster James Gallacher. "People looking for Irish passports"

Good morning! This is the tech news you need to know this Tuesday.

  1. Google is likely to end its efforts to build a censored search engine for China, the Intercept reported. Google had originally planned to launch its censored search engine, known as "Project Dragonfly," between January and April 2019.
  2. Some SpaceX investors are reportedly concerned Elon Musk is using their money for his Boring Company venture. The Boring Company is set to open its first completed tunnel on Tuesday, but some investors are concerned the money they allocated for SpaceX was being used elsewhere.
  3. Russian election interference campaigns received more engagement on Instagram than Facebook, according to a report commissioned by the Senate Intelligence Committee. The report says that Facebook, which owns Instagram, avoided mentioning Instagram's significance in testimony to Congress.
  4. Google is planning a huge $1 billion campus in New York. Google announced on Monday that it would spend $1 billion in a major expansion in New York City.
  5. Russia's political influence campaign on social media targeted black voters, and the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People is now calling for a boycott of Facebook and Instagram. According to two new reports created for the Senate's intelligence committee, Russian-linked accounts and posts were used to spread content focused on racial tensions and suppress black voter turnout.
  6. Current and former Babylon Health staff revealed their concerns to Forbes that the company's software was rushed to market before being properly screened. Babylon Health is intimately involved with Britain's National Health Service (NHS).

  9. "Fresh Prince" actor Alfonso Ribeiro and Instagram's Backpack Kid are the latest artists to sue the creators of "Fortnite" for allegedly copying dance moves to make money. "Fortnite: Battle Royale" is the world's most popular game, making more than $200 million a month selling emotes and other cosmetic items for use in the game.
  10. One of the most anticipated games of the decade, "Kingdom Hearts 3," has leaked over a month early, and outraged fans have tracked down the alleged leaker.
