Drama as MPs vote to block no-deal Brexit in all circumstances

14 March 2019

Opposition Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn has demanded a general election after embattled Prime Minister Theresa May's second major parliamentary defeat on the Brexit, saying she must let the people decide who should lead them into the next phase of the UK's divorce deal with the EU.

Instead, Theresa May is still running down the clock in an attempt to force MPs to back her Brexit deal.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn called for a general election to be held so the public can decide if they want him to implement his own Brexit plan, which would keep the United Kingdom in a customs union with the EU. She added, to some cheers from her backbenchers: "I may not have my own voice, but I do understand the voice of the country".

The Prime Minister dashed to Strasbourg on Monday in a bid to secure legally-binding changes to the backstop, which was aimed at preventing a hard Irish border.

But Mrs May warned: 'Voting against leaving without a deal and for extension does not solve the problems we face.

Ms Smith, who voted to remain in the EU Referendum in 2016, voted against the government's Brexit deal last night because it "doesn't deliver what my constituents voted for".

She has no plans to return to Brussels to ask for more concessions, they added.

This means doing what the prime minister failed to do two years ago: "search for a consensus on the way forward".

The MP for Inverness, Nairn, Badenoch and Strathspey said the priority for parliament must be to extend Article 50 and delay the European Union leave date of March 29, in order to allow the decision to go back to the people in a second European Union referendum.

"We owe it to the country to provide them with a government that can govern", he said. "We are committed to ratifying this deal before 29 March".

Nicky Morgan, the former Tory education secretary, said she did not think May would be able to stay in office "for very much longer" if the deal was rejected.

"That funding is being used to ensure we have preparations for a no deal".
