Remainer MPs vote to seize control of Brexit | LIVE replay



THERESA May today faces fresh pressure to quit – whether or not she manages to force through her Brexit deal.

The PM is being urged to vow she’ll resign in a last-ditch bid to convince Brexiteers they should back her deal in the Commons this week.

And she was warned that if her Brexit strategy collapses, she’ll have no choice but to step down anyway.

The PM is considering holding the third “meaningful vote” on her deal as soon as tomorrow in a high-stakes gamble – if she can win over the DUP.

This morning the Prime Minister summoned Cabinet ministers for a Downing Street summit to lay out the next steps on Brexit – but they didn’t discuss her own future.

During the meeting, ministers clashed over whether they should go for a No Deal Brexit in the event the PM’s deal is defeated for good…

Theresa May refuses to rule out No Deal Brexit as she arrives in Brussels



THERESA May is set to ask the EU for a short Brexit delay today as Brits are “fed up” with politicians’ dithering more than 1,000 days after they voted OUT.

In a sign that the PM is confident she can get her deal pushed through on the third time, officials said today she won’t be asking for a long delay to add more wasted time to the process.

A No10 official said: “PM won’t be asking for a long extension.

“There is a case for giving Parliament a bit more time to agree a way forward, but the people of this country have been waiting nearly three years now.

“They are fed up with Parliament’s failure to take a decision and the PM shares their frustration.”

A long extension could have been up to three YEARS – with a break clause if a deal is finally done…
