Theresa May in final Brexit push

Theresa May in final Brexit push

Tabled by Tory MP Caroline Spelman and Labour's Jack Dromey this amendment rejects a no-deal Brexit at any time and under any circumstances.

MPs will hold a fresh round of votes tonight on whether to leave the European Union without a Brexit deal on March 29th. "In the last 24 hours Parliament has decisively rejected both her deal and no deal".

The idea of modifying the Brexit deal or delaying it has not been well received by the Prime Minister and the Conservative Party.

What isn't clear is how the prime minister actually intends to dig herself out of this terrible political hole.

Shadow business secretary Rebecca Long-Bailey told BBC News Parliament would increasingly "set the agenda" if the government was not in control of events.

Earlier in the day, British MPs also rejected another amendment that sought to delay Brexit until May 22 by extending the Article 50 of the EU's Lisbon Treaty.

He said he will now meet with MPs from across the House of Commons to "find a compromise solution". It mandates a short "technical" extension until June 30th IF her Withdrawal Agreement passes.

British Columbia does not have a provincial policy on cellphone use in classrooms, so schools set their own rules. The Toronto District School Board (TDSB) implemented a similar ban but it was reversed four years later.

Corbyn asked which way May would vote on the government motion, for which Conservative MPs will have a free vote. It should be noted that the votes are not legally binding and a no-deal Brexit on March 29 is still a possibilty unless the two sides reach a deal.

Jacob Rees-Mogg, chairman of the European Research Group of Brexiteer MPs, said he felt the rejected deal had not delivered on the commitment to leave the EU cleanly and that the backstop would have kept the United Kingdom in the customs union. "European Council President Donald Tusk shares the same reluctancy of going head on with the current Brexit deal as "the EU was open to Britain postponing its exit" according to Al Jazeera". Corbyn's amendment was defeated by 318 to 302 votes.

May told Bone this was not realistic: "The EU have made it clear there will be no agreement without a withdrawal agreement, and that includes what we have already negotiated on citizens' rights, a financial settlement and a Northern Ireland protocol". The Brexit transition might cause chaos in the beginning as this would sever economic, legal, and political ties with the European Union due to the mutual dependence and close bond established by both parties.

"'No deal' would be catastrophic for the United Kingdom economy, so I will be voting to ensure this option is permanently taken off the table".

Chancellor Philip Hammond has signalled his backing for a cross-party consensus over Brexit, despite the PM still appearing to support her own deal.
