    For all the talk about May agreeing not to fight another election, I think few thought that an option anyway. I expected May to get less votes of no confidence. However it's a difficult vote for labour to make political capital from when their leader would dream of 2/3 support from MPs.

    I thought she had a pretty easy ride. As John Pienaar said on the radio it's hard for Corbyn to go hard on the vote of no confidence when his Mps have done similar.

    Looking at the response so far from Tory mps (providing what they say and think is the same) I can't see it being particularly close. Then again I thought Remain and Hillary would win !

    Well using labour 2017 logic, a narrow loss is a victory!

    The parliamentary arithmetic is what it is, I don't see how a leadership change will help. The same problems will still exist.

    I don't think there will be a general election. Even if there was I think most people think Corbyn and May are both useless and won't hand either a significant majority, resulting in gridlock. I think a peoples vote could be popular, if no deal is the alternative. At present labour are offering no realistic alternative.

    Labour need to get behind the peoples vote and then they can offer a realistic alternative. That may hurt Corbyns feelings, but we cannot make the poor poorer so relatively well of people like Jezza can see an ideological dream come true. At present nobody with any sense believes labour can negotiate what they say, the EU would never agree to it.

    It doesn't help May. The trouble is I don't think the public feel PM Corbyn or PM Boris would be any less farcical driving the process forward. While it is easy to criticise May, I am yet to hear a logical argument why on alternative (taking their current approach) would do any better.

    True, you could also argue that the media may not choose a black footballer as their future golden boy

    Playing devil's advocate. Could the fact that Foden is" the English next big thing" impact on the coverage, I personally hadn't heard of the other bloke.

    In terms of his job I would have thought it wouldn't be a case of choosing who to believe, but would need evidence.

    I think not just the fact he is black, but his background.I suspect a black person from a private school upbringing would be treated differently.

    Isn't there also a factor that some players are more willing to play the media game. I'm thinking the likes of Gerrard, Kane, post 98 Beckham and that's why they get an easier ride.

    They were discussing this on the times podcast and one of the journalists felt it was more of a subconscious racism rather than direct hatred of black people. He also pointed to some research which found people applying for the same jobs, with the same CV were less likely to be interviewed if they have names more associated with black people.

    The trouble is getting rid of May solves little. Any potential successor will be left with exactly the same difficulties.
