No Confidence

As Theresa May enters what she calls a 'critical' week for her Brexit deal amid criticism on several fronts, speculation is increasing that she may be facing a vote of no confidence from dissatisfied Conservative MP's.

After a week which saw Cabinet Ministers resign over the Brexit deal all eyes are now on Sir Graham Brady, chairman of the backbench 1922 Committee. If he receives 48 letters of no confidence in the Prime Minister, a challenge for the leadership can be made. Sir Graham is not revealing how many letters he has receives thus far but it is believed to be close.

Mrs May refuses to consider quitting as leader stating that 'a change of leadership at this point isn't going to make the negotiations any easier.' She went on to add 'what it will do is bring in a degree of uncertainty'

Uncertainty is definitely the word to describe Britain's future at this time and the effects that Brexit will have on the economy. The only thing we can say with confidence is that whatever the challenges ahead, as a Xero partner you can be confident that you have the right accounting systems to deal with whatever the future brings.
