British MPs demand Theresa May supply an alternative Brexit deal

  • Theresa May speaks outside 10 Downing Street after a confidence vote by Conservative Party members of parliament in London Britain

Earlier in the day, an amendment, tabled by pro-remain Tory backbencher Dominic Grieve, which would give the Prime Minister three days to come up with a "plan B" if she loses her Brexit deal vote next week, was voted through by MPs - meaning defeat for May's government.

Losing the vote would deepen the uncertainty over the future of Brexit, Britain's biggest shift in foreign and trade policy for more than 40 years, and opens the way for several different outcomes, ranging from a disorderly exit to another referendum.

He said: "What is important now is to say that we should not take any stances which could damage or endanger any chance of putting the deal on and having it passed through the House of Commons and working in a way to put it back on track on what was supposed to be the timetable for the 29th of March".

She pulled a scheduled parliamentary vote on the brokered withdrawal agreement last month, admitting it lacked the required support.

The move is created to help sway the Democratic Unionist Party, which props up May's government, to back the divorce terms she negotiated with Brussels.

The amendment, which was carried by 303 votes to 297, does not force May and her ministers to change tack but is the first act of constitutional trench warfare between MPs and the government.

But, combined with a vote late on Tuesday when the government lost on the finance bill, the defeats underline May's precarious position in parliament.

Since being elected in 2009, he has angered many Tory MPs for his handling of business and treatment of MPs, but he also has many admirers, particularly on the Labour benches, who believe he has transformed the way Parliament holds the executive to account.

Environment Secretary Michael Gove told Cabinet that those considering rejecting Mrs May's agreement in the hope of securing a better deal were like swingers in their mid-50s waiting for film star Scarlett Johansson to turn up on a date.

Labour Leader Jeremy Corbyn has said he will push for an election. The Brexit deal was never only a choice between the Prime Minister's deal and averting to only WTO rules.

Lawmakers voted 308-297 on Wednesday in favour of demanding the government come up with an alternative plan within three working days after the January 15 vote, rather than a planned 21-day limit.

"It seems clear that May will lose the vote, the only real question is how much does she lose by", Usherwood added.

The other 27 European Union leaders have repeatedly said they will not reopen the deal struck with Britain in November, which covers key separation issues such as money and expatriate citizens' rights.

He said: "That sticker on the subject of Brexit happens to be affixed to or in the windscreen of my wife's vehicle, and I'm sure he wouldn't suggest for one moment that a wife is somehow the property or chattel of her husband".

But EU leaders have refused to budge, insisting that the withdrawal agreement can not be renegotiated. We all want to have a fruitful profitable relationship with the United Kingdom in the future so the backstop is just a last resort solution. May presents. That clears the way for MPs to propose everything from a second referendum on Brexit to delaying the country's departure from the European Union and even cancelling Brexit altogether.

The Shadow Brexit Secretary added: "Leaving with no-deal would be catastrophic".
