Theresa May suffers another humiliating Brexit defeat

Theresa May suffers another humiliating Brexit defeat

After the defeat, in a vote that May did not attend, her office said that her government would continue changes to the existing Withdrawal Agreement in Brussels.

He told BBC Radio 4's Today programme that was "why the Prime Minister and other ministers are working flat-out to make sure that we are able to leave the European Union on March 29 with a deal which has the support of the House of Commons". "She can not keep on just running down the clock and hoping that something will turn up that will save her day or save her face".

The defeat in parliament came at the hands of the European Research Group, led by Jacob Rees-Mogg, who abstained on a government motion because it appeared to rule out a no-deal Brexit.

Former attorney general Dominic Grieve said that the next round of Brexit votes on February 27 would be a "high noon" moment when resignations on this scale - which he said could include six Cabinet members - might bring Mrs May's Government down.

Speaking during Prime Minister's Questions, she said: "The analysis does not show that we will be poorer than the status quo today".

Members had been infuriated by the wording of the motion which endorsed the approach set out in a series of Commons votes at the end of January.

He said: "We put an enormous amount of effort into uniting the party around the Malthouse Compromise, and then within a couple of days the Prime Minister was reinterpreting our vote".

Noting his own state's mix of fossil fuels and renewables, Cramer said he's anxious to explore some energy deals with Democrats. She has opted to frame it as one of potentially many anti-climate-change proposals.

He added: "No deal is an eventuality we wish to avoid, but one we continue to plan for".

Veteran Tory Europhile Kenneth Clarke has tabled a further amendment, backed by senior figures from across the House, including Labour's Harriet Harman, which would allow MPs to vote for their preferred Brexit outcome.

She was asked by the Brexit extremists to get rid of the backstop and reopen her Brexit deal, but after going to Brussels, she achieved nothing again.

The divergent views from two of the most powerful Wall Street banks indicates just how hard investors are finding it to read the labyrinthine plots and counterplots of Brexit, the United Kingdom's most significant political and economic move since World War Two.

The Scottish National Party called for a postponement of the March 29 Brexit date by at least three months.

In an interview with Parliament's The House magazine, conducted before the vote, he said they had celebrated after Mrs May was defeated in last month's vote and were not true Conservatives.

Meanwhile, a cross-party initiative backed by Tory Anna Soubry and Labour's Chuka Umunna demands the government publish its most recent official briefing on the implications of a no-deal Brexit for business and trade.
