Corbyn scathes May's Brexit deal day before Parliament vote



THERESA May faces calls from leading Conservatives to quit tomorrow after failing to win any Brexit breakthrough in talks with the EU.

Nicky Morgan yesterday became the most senior Tory yet to say the PM must go if she loses the crunch Commons vote. MPs are expected to give her deal a drubbing tomorrow night.

She remains on standby to jet to Brussels at the 11th hour if her team of officials manage to agree any changes to the Withdrawal Agreement.

But despite British and EU officials working through the weekend sources in Brussels said the chances of any last minute progress were “pretty unlikely,” adding: “Nobody is really expecting anything to come of it.”

In a sign of the panic setting in No10, Mrs May has announced a special meeting of her Cabinet on Wednesday morning to discuss the fallout from tomorrow night’s vote…

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.”

Theresa May loses her voice at Brexit debate



THERESA May faces a moment of truth today after finally securing changes to her Brexit deal hours before MPs vote on it.

The PM won last-minute tweaks to the Irish backstop plan which she says will stop Britain being tied to the EU.

But it’s still not clear whether or not the fix will be enough to convince rebel Brexiteers they should support her in tonight’s crunch vote.

This evening the House of Commons will vote for a second time on whether or not to approve Mrs May’s deal.

If she wins, Britain will be on track to leave the EU with a deal in 17 days’ time.

But if the deal falls, MPs are then likely to delay Brexit by up to three months in a further vote scheduled for later this week.

Senior Brexiteers such as Jacob Rees-Mogg and Iain Duncan Smith warned the jury is still out and refused to say how they will vote tonight…

May's Brexit deal defeated by 149 votes



BRITAIN was tonight plunged into chaos once again as MPs voted to kill off Theresa May’s Brexit deal by 391 votes to 242.

Now 993 days after the referendum, and with just 17 days before Brexit, Brits are still in the dark about when or if we will ever leave the EU.

Furious MPs blasted the uncertainty – saying the “wretched soap opera of Brexit continues” as the country heads “back to square one”.

Parliament has repeatedly voted against Mrs May’s strategy for leaving the EU on March 29.

But without a clear alternative on the table, the latest defeat opens the door to a range of wildly different outcomes – from a cliff-edge No Deal to a second referendum which could cancel Brexit entirely.

Tomorrow MPs will vote on whether Britain should quit the EU without a deal in 17 days’ time.

But they are expected to oppose the idea – and will instead back a delay to Brexit in a further vote likely to take place on Thursday.

Tory MP Bob Seely, who voted for the deal, warned that tonight’s result would “prolong the Brexit purgatory” and “grab defeat from the jaws of victory”.

He added: “This entire episode is becoming a shambles that reflects appallingly on this current House of Commons. There are now no good options.”

And Lib Dem Layla Moran, a backer of the pro-EU Best for Britain group, told The Sun: “The Prime Minister has failed the country. Three years on and we’re back to square one. It’s humiliating.”

She said Mrs May should “hang her head in shame” and called for an immediate delay to the Article 50 process…
