Brexit: Theresa May vows to quit – BBC News



The UK Prime Minister Theresa May has promised Conservative MPs she will quit –if they back her Brexit deal. She said she would make way for someone else to lead the next phase of negotiations with the European Union. The move has led to more party rebels saying they’re now ready to support her withdrawal agreement, although the Democratic Unionist Party, who provide crucial support to Mrs May’s government, say they still won’t back it.

MPs also voted to extend Article 50 to the 12th April, giving the UK two more weeks to secure a deal.

However none of the MPs’ eight proposed options for Brexit, which were voted on in the House of Commons, secured a clear majority leaving the path ahead unclear.

Downing Street has now officially confirmed what the prime minister told MPs just now. It is pretty striking stuff.

“This has been a testing time for our country and our party,” she said.

“We’re nearly there. We’re almost ready to start a new chapter and build that brighter future. “But before we can do that, we have to finish the job in hand.

“I have heard very clearly the mood of the parliamentary party. I know there is a desire for a new approach – and new leadership – in the second phase of the Brexit negotiations – and I won’t stand in the way of that.”

“I know some people are worried that if you vote for the Withdrawal Agreement, I will take that as a mandate to rush on into phase two without the debate we need to have. I won’t – I hear what you are saying.

“But we need to get the deal through and deliver Brexit.”

Theresa May: No third vote on Brexit deal yet – BBC News



Theresa May has ruled out a third Commons vote on her Brexit deal on Tuesday.

She tells MPs there is not enough support in Parliament at the moment for another meaningful vote, but she continues to have discussions with MPs to see if they can be convinced to vote for the deal.

In her statement to MPs, she says that the EU Council has reiterated again that there “could be no re-opening of the withdrawal agreement”.

The UK has an extension to 11pm on the 12th of April, she says, in the event that no deal is agreed by Parliament.

Any further extension, and the UK will need to take part in elections for the European parliament.

May: We will not be able to leave on time – BBC News



Theresa May says nearly three years have passed since the public voted to leave.

“I came to office on a promise to deliver the result of the referendum,” she says.

Two years on, MPs have been unable to implement this result, she says, and “as a result we will not be able to leave on time”.

“This is a great personal regret for me.”
