Parliament rejects December 12 election motion

Parliament has rejected the government’s proposal for an election on the 12 December, but the Lib Dem and SNP plan tomorrow to put forward a motion for a nationwide poll three days earlier is expected to pass, as it does not require the 2/3rds majority needed for an election under the Fixed Terms Parliaments Act.

Gerry definitely hopes they get the vote through tomorrow…
