But now she's offered to step aside if MPs back her deal. So who will be the next PM? Here are the latest odds. Who will be the next Prime Minister? Theresa May survived a vote of no confidence in December 2018, but repeated thwarted attempts to pass her Brexit deal have left her without authority.

The Prime Minister told the 1922 Committee of Conservative MPs: "I know there is a desire for a new approach, and new leadership, in the second phase of the Brexit negotiations – and I won’t stand in the way of that. "I know some people are worried that if you vote for the withdrawal agreement, I will take that as a mandate to rush on into phase two without the debate we need to have. I won’t – I hear what you are saying. But we need to get the … [Read more...] about Who will be the next UK Prime Minister? Latest odds if Theresa May resigns

THERESA May has indicated that she intends to remain in power post-Brexit. The PM promised to step down before the 2022 general election to see off a bid to oust her in December. Here are the latest odds. Who will be the next Prime Minister? Theresa May will go unchallenged by her own party for the next year because of the result of the vote of no confidence, parliamentary rules claim. In December she told Tory MPs she knew they wouldn't let her lead them into another general election in 2022 — though "in my heart" she would have wanted to. But now May is determined to see her Brexit deal passed before stepping down. After bitterness with her among Conservatives deepened since then, Cabinet ministers have told how they now expect her to stand down this summer. But when quizzed about when she plans to resign, the PM insisted: “As far as I’m concerned, my job is not just about delivering Brexit. “There is still a domestic agenda that I want to get on with."

THERESA May has seen off a gruelling challenge after dozens of MPs expressed a vote of no confidence in her leadership. But with over a third of her party wanting to boot out, she is still on treacherously thin ice. Come what May, who would replace her? Here are the latest odds. What are the odds on the next Prime Minister? Under parliamentary rules, the result of the vote of no confidence means Mrs May will go unchallenged by her own party for the next year. But she has strongly hinted that she will step down before her term officially ends in 2022. But Mrs May also seems determined that she will try to see Brexit through before resigning. Her scrappy success means she is safe from another such challenge from her own benches for the next year. This week, MPs will vote on Theresa May's Brexit deal, and if it doesn't pass her position will appear weak. But the weaker-than-expected result of the vote has bolstered the likelihood of Labour going for a vote of no confidence in the … [Read more...] about Who will be the next PM if Theresa May resigns before the next election – from Jacob Rees-Mogg to Boris Johnson and Amber Rudd
Scaling Emmy heights is tough in the era of so-called peak TV, with the volume of shows matched by lofty expectations from academy voters. Good isn't enough for comedies and dramas, which need to resonate with the current political and social zeitgeist. Actors who also pull off the high-wire act of writing and directing collect more respect and trophies. Talent aside, a lavish marketing campaign helps in a crowded field: With as many as seven or eight nominees in some key categories, about 14 percent of the TV academy vote can determine who gets a trophy, according to awards website Gold Derby. So is it "Game of Thrones" (with a leading 22 nods, but the majority technical ones) or "The Handmaid's Tale" for best drama? Will Donald Glover repeat as best comedy actor for "Atlanta" or could Bill Hader of freshman "Barry" be an upset winner? Jennifer Garner and Seth Meyers talk about her upcoming film, “Peppermint,” which she says let her get all of her “mom rage” … [Read more...] about Emmy 2018 Predictions: Who Will Take Home the Coveted Awards This Year
