More stupidity. Just what is it with these people? The so-called Liberal Democrats have held their seaside get-together and the Labour Party theirs. Why deny the Tories theirs other than to be spiteful. The conferences do nobody any harm (and precious little good other than keeping MPs out of Parliament). It gives politicians and their supporters a little air time. It boosts the economies of the towns where they are held. Quite honestly, giving them three days off is a great benefit to the country as it prevents them from inflicting any further damage on the electorate for a short while.

Childish, puerile nonsense. And they wonder why people have no time for them.
what goes around comes around.
Serve 'em right if the Tories went ahead with their conference & left the oppos facing empty benches.
they might as well, the VBQC have the numbers anyway.
No big deal. Tory MPs should go to their conference and let the country see what a shambles the rabble of an Opposition make in their absence.
The Tory Party conference is still expected to go ahead in some form between 29 September and 2 October but Parliament will be sitting so it is unclear whether MPs will attend.

I cannot find out who proposed the motion. If the whips do not get a hold, the way the party is at the moment, the conference could end up being a blood bath.

Tony, can't help you there.I missed who proposed it.
Is this normal practice ? Traditionally do parties not get a recess for that ? I'm not up with the way conferences are normally held.
Danny I also misread the OP thought they wanted to suspend the conference not parliament. Borris has a knack for suspending parliament lol
The recess motion was tabled by Jacob Rees-Mogg.
Must be the first time when MP's of all shades haven't fallen over each other, jumping the gun , to skive off the business they are expected and paid to do by the electorate. Perhaps a group sicky is in order.
3 days uncertificated sick used to be 'order of the day' . :-(

OG, yes they normally do get a recession for all parties, but the Supreme Court Ruling has interfered with that.
OG no do not think so, but parliament was recalled? Not sure when it was due to return normally.
Question Author
Tony, if the motion had been successful parliament would have risen at the end of today until next Thursday.
OK thanks angie
OK thanks Danny no one is going to do the conservatives any favours and their lack of majority does not help.
MPs going back to work resulted in the Labour Party Conference having to be cut short.
Which was a blessing really.
There is nothing to prevent the Tory Conference from taking place is there?
