MPs Vote Against A No-Deal Brexit Under "Any Circumstance"

MPs Vote Against A No-Deal Brexit Under

David Cameron has warned MPs that failing to rule out a no-deal Brexit would be a "disaster" for Britain.

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.

Theresa May's Brexit strategy was hit by a devastating blow after the House of Commons rejected her EU Withdrawal Agreement by an overwhelming majority for the second time.

In line with a promise set out by Mrs May last month, MPs are now due to vote today on whether they are willing for the United Kingdom to leave the European Union without a deal on March 29. MPs were asked to vote again yesterday on the new agreement and documents announced...

Mrs May said a customs union was part of proposals put forward by Labour but argued these had "already been rejected" by MPs.

In the Commons on Tuesday evening, Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn said Mrs May should now call a general election.

Mrs May said that the choices facing the United Kingdom were "unenviable", but because of the rejection of her deal, "they are choices that must be faced".

According to a report by Bloomberg , Apple has invested over a billion dollars to produce shows for its video-streaming services. This year, Apple is expected to unveil the iPad (7th-generation) that will retain the conventional headphone jack and Touch ID.

Prime Minister Theresa May has given up any pretence of leading Britain by allowing her MPs to vote according to their own beliefs rather than along party lines on Wednesday, the Labour Party said on Tuesday.

Downing Street said it had no intention of holding an election.

She told parliament that she has struggled with the need to honor the 2016 Brexit referendum results while also getting a good deal from Brussels, adding that if MPs vote to leave with no deal, that will become official government policy.

"And that the deal we have negotiated is the best and indeed only deal available".

A delay to the March 29 departure date is now nearly certain.

Jess Phillips, making her first Commons speech in the debates on the Brexit process, said the "single thing that has been missing from the very beginning of this horrid and torrid affair in British politics was any semblance of leadership and courage to take the country somewhere with them". Mrs May's massive defeat also opens the door to drastic options such as a general election or second referendum.

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