Theresa May says Brexit delay is a ‘matter of great personal regret’ as she blames MPs



The PM called on politicians to get behind her deal as the EU warned Britain will crash out with No Deal within days if they don’t.

It comes as the PM hinted she will quit if her deal doesn’t go through, rather than risk prolonging Brexit beyond June.

Speaking from 10 Downing Street tonight, Mrs May pinned the blame for Brexit chaos on squabbling MPs who can’t decide what they want.

She blasted: “MPs have been unable to agree on a way to implement the UK’s withdrawal. As a result, we will not now leave on time with a deal on March 29.

“This delay is a matter of great personal regret for me. And of this I am absolutely sure – you the public have had enough.

“You are tired of the infighting. You are tired of the political games and arcane procedural rows. Tired of MPs talking about nothing else but Brexit when you have real concerns about our children’s schools, our National Health Service, and knife crime.

“You want this stage of the Brexit process to be over and done with. I agree. I am on your side. It is now time for MPs to decide.”

PM Theresa May says MPs face 'consequences' after they vote to reject a No Deal Brexit



BRITAIN is tonight heading for a delay to Brexit after Remainer MPs took control and voted to rule out EVER leaving the EU with No Deal.

Following a night of political chaos, the House of Commons is almost certain to vote to delay Brexit tomorrow – meaning the UK won’t quit the EU on March 29 as planned.

The PM will then be forced to ask the EU to grant an extension of three months.

The gambit means it’s almost impossible for Britain to quit the EU on time – and makes it more likely we might never leave at all.

Mrs May warned that the Commons will have to choose between a “short technical extension” to give her the chance to get her deal through at the third time of asking – or a long delay which would see Britain taking part in the next European Parliament elections.

In chaotic Commons scenes, Mrs May lost control of the Brexit process again in the face of a massive Remainer rebellion.

The Prime Minister backed a motion which would have ruled out a No Deal Brexit on March 29 but left it open for a later date.

But in a shock move, MPs instead voted for a more hardline amendment from Tory ex-minister Caroline Spelman, stating that the UK should NEVER leave the EU without a deal.

The Commons supported the Spelman amendment by 312 votes to 308.

Mrs May then reversed her policy – asking Tory MPs to vote AGAINST the main motion instead.

But a large number of pro-Remain ministers rebelled and the call to block No Deal was passed by 321 votes to 278.

The rebels included Cabinet ministers Amber Rudd, David Gauke, Greg Clark and David Mundell, who all abstained – while the Disabilities Minister Sarah Newton quit in order to back the motion.

Tonight’s vote is not legally binding – but the PM has already pledged to abide by whatever Parliament wants.

The chaos was another sign the Prime Minister has lost control of the Brexit process and her party – with Tories calling on her to sack the top ministers who failed to support her.

Brexiteer Ben Bradley, who backed Mrs May’s deal, fumed: “We just betrayed the promise we made to the electorate. I’m angry, quite emotional really.

“It’s incredibly difficult to justify… We promised to leave on the 29th, now Parliament has said we’re not going to leave.”

He demanded she sack the rebels, adding: “If she doesn’t then I think we are in total freefall.

“We are not getting the Brexit we want and not getting it on the time we voted for.”

The Commons verdict is a massive blow to Brexiteers who think the UK should quit the EU on time with or without a deal – and it boosts Remainers who want to block Brexit altogether.

The No Deal vote exposed deep splits in the Tory party following fury at the PM’s refusal to try and keep No Deal alive.

Boris Johnson hit out at Mrs May’s decision to offer a free vote on No Deal – telling LBC: “I do think that is absurd, this is a fundamental matter of Government policy.”

But David Cameron backed the PM, saying: “Obviously, what needs to happen next is to rule out No Deal – that would be a disaster for our country – and to seek an extension, and I’m sure that is what is going to happen next.”

Chancellor Philip Hammond openly urged the PM to go for a softer Brexit deal which can win the support of other parties in an extraordinary blow to her authority.

In today’s Brexit debate, senior Leavers warned that removing the option of No Deal puts Britain in a much weaker position.

John Redwood said: “This Parliament must allow us to leave on March 29 otherwise it will be the people against the Parliament.”
