Theresa May will retain leadership of the Tories, and under party rules, she will not face another challenge for at least a year: "We now need to get on with the job of delivering Brexit to the British people and building a better future for this country," May told reporters after the vote, standing outside the prime minister's residence at No. 10 Downing St. in London.
"A Brexit that delivers on the votes that people gave; that brings back control of our money, our borders and our laws; that protects jobs, security and the union; that brings the country back together rather than entrenching division — that must start here in Westminster with politicians on all sides coming together and acting in the national interest."
Jacob Rees-Mogg, a Conservative member of Parliament who pushed for the vote:
"She ought to go and see the queen urgently and resign, and I'll tell you why: Constitutionally, if a prime minister cannot get her business through the House of Commons ... and then discovers that the overwhelming majority of her backbenchers have voted against her, she clearly doesn't have confidence of the House of Commons," Rees-Mogg told the BBC. "She should make way for somebody who does."
