The Independent published this video item, entitled “What is a no confidence motion and why is it likely to fail?” – below is their description.
A look at the motion of no confidence laid down by the Liberal Democrats as they seek to topple the Boris Johnson administration following a litany of claims of Covid rule-breaking in No 10.
A confidence motion is a way of testing whether the prime minister and their cabinet still has the support of the House of Commons.
It has the power to trigger a general election and could see a new prime minister appointed.
If the government loses, it has 14 days to try to win back the confidence of MPs through another vote.The Independent YouTube Channel

In This Story: Vote
Voting is a method for a group, such as a meeting or an electorate, in order to make a collective decision or express an opinion usually following discussions, debates or election campaigns. Democracies elect holders of high office by voting. Residents of a place represented by an elected official are called “constituents”, and those constituents who cast a ballot for their chosen candidate are called “voters”. There are different systems for collecting votes, but while many of the systems used in decision-making can also be used as electoral systems, any which cater for proportional representation can only be used in elections.
In smaller organizations, voting can occur in different ways. Formally via ballot to elect others for example within a workplace, to elect members of political associations or to choose roles for others. Informally voting could occur as a spoken agreement or as a verbal gesture like a raised hand or electronically.
