May’s brexit clamour suffers setback again as MPs rejected deal for the third time on friday.
Britain’s withdrawal from the EU is thrown into turmoil on the day it is originally set to leave the bloc. The Uk is now set to exit on April 12 by legal default.
May therefore hopes to bring her Brexit deal back to parliament next week for a fourth attempt. She will continue to seek support for her deal as MPs are set to hold another vote by monday.
Several pro Brexit Conservative MPs who had twice rejected May’s deal supported the agreement on Friday. But with the Labour Party and the Democratic Unionist Party opposed to the plan, a majority vote was unachievable.
What’s The Next Move
It remains unclear when, how or even whether Britain will leave the EU, with recent deadlock. But MPs will try to agree on an alternative Brexit plan that could win support of cross-party.
The options that have so far gathered maximum support involve closer ties to the EU and a second referendum.
