United Kingdom parliament rejects Theresa May's Brexit deal

United Kingdom parliament rejects Theresa May's Brexit deal

Belgian Prime Minister Charles Michel said it's "up to the British to assume the outcome of their choice", while Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte was a little more upbeat: "Despite this setback, it does not mean we are in a no-deal situation", he said on Twitter.

The party has not disclosed the timing of such a motion, which could come as early as Tuesday night, triggering a vote on Wednesday.

In a last-ditch plea to MPs to back her European Union withdrawal plan, she told them: "I believe we have a duty to deliver on the democratic decision of the British people, and to do so in a way that brings our country together". Even today, 30 months on, there is still no clarity on what the United Kingdom wants in terms of Brexit.

Lawmakers will vote Wednesday on his motion of no-confidence.

The MP for Beaconsfield told talkRADIO's Julia Hartley-Brewer: "The Prime Minister did not consult me about the 2017 manifesto and if she should have asked me about putting in "no deal is better than a bad deal" - I would have told her that it was a very foolish thing to say because it is simply untrue".

Arlene Foster, head of Northern Ireland's Democratic Unionist Party upon which May relies for her parliamentary majority, said May needed to win binding concessions from Brussels to secure her vote.

It has taken 19 months from the point where she squandered her parliamentary majority by calling an election for her to publicly acknowledge that she'll need to listen to opposition MPs if she wants to get a deal through Parliament. "In the meantime, the rights of citizens must be safeguarded".

"Whatever option you put to the House of Commons it would be voted down".

"She is devoid of authority in the Commons, in the country, and even within her own party".

"Our view is we should have a general election".

"There's no realistic prospect of a second referendum as long as you have conservative government in power", he said.

However, Downing Street said it would retain its core Brexit "principles" of control over the UK's borders, laws and money, and having an independent trade policy.

May will meanwhile begin consulting MPs from other parties to try and determine a way forward to avoid a "no deal" Brexit.

Mrs May responded by criticising Mr Corbyn's lack of a Brexit plan and claiming he could not be trusted with the UK's security or economy.

"The responsibility of each and every one of us at this moment is profound, for this is a historic decision that will set the future of our country for generations".

Many Brexiters from the Conservative party, who combined with Labour to defeat the deal in parliament, have been talking down the dangers of a "no deal" Brexit, which Treasury modelling predicted would slice nearly 10 per cent from the country's economy.

And a group of Conservative party rebels, led by three former ministers, have published a draft bill that, if passed, would compel the government to request a delay on Brexit to December while parliament dictates a new withdrawal plan.

"So if we dice that up and said there are probably four or five major positions, there is a good number of MPs that agree with one of those options - the fundamental problem here is there isn't a majority in the House of Commons for any of these options", he said.

The no confidence vote will then take place at 7pm tonight with a result expected at around 7.30pm.
