MPs REJECT amendment requesting to delay Brexit until June 30

  • MPs voted down no-deal Brexit in any conditions pound soars 9-month high

Prime Minister Theresa May's hopes of getting a Brexit divorce deal through parliament were given a boost on Saturday after a report that the Northern Irish party propping up her government might move towards backing her deal. This means a majority of MPs want an orderly divorce with the European Union, but not on the withdrawal agreement Ms.

The move would require the agreement of the other 27 European Union members, with talks about any conditions for an extension set to begin before leaders gather at a summit next week. But the Commons is voting now on a more damaging plan to seize control of the Commons agenda next week with the aim of taking over the Brexit process. May does have a point; if Parliament votes no-deal, then Brexit will be further delayed due to re-elections.

It sets the terms on which a member country will leave the EU. According to the Washington Post, Corbyn's spokesman states that Prime Minister Theresa May is "recklessly running down the clock" forcing "MPs to choose between her botched deal and a disastrous no-deal".

But if the Commons has not passed a resolution approving the negotiated withdrawal agreement by March 20, then the motion said it is "highly likely" the European Council would require a "clear objective for any extension" and to determine its length.

He told the BBC: "If we get the deal through as I hope we still will, we will now need a short, technical extension".

Downing Street said this was a "natural consequence" of Mrs May's decision to offer a free vote on an issue where there are "strong views on all sides of the debate".

The government narrowly averted an attempt by lawmakers to seize the agenda on March 20 with the aim of forcing a discussion of alternative Brexit options - possibly limiting May's options when she takes her case for delay to the EU. So, Parliament is faced with the same old unacceptable deal in MV3 this week.

If the deal is rejected by MPs again, Mrs May has warned that the EU is likely to only accept a longer delay, which would mean the United Kingdom would need to send new MEPs back to the European Parliament.

With the March 29, 2019 date for Brexit looming and no deal to address the separation yet approved, the House of Commons voted on March 14, 2019, to defer Brexit until at least June 30, 2019.

Documents circulating among EU ambassadors make clear the bloc would terminate the UK's membership on July 1 if it has not taken part in European Parliament elections.

In the pouring rain in Sunderland, northeast England, which was the first place in Britain to declare a vote to leave the EU, Farage, wearing a flat cap and carrying an umbrella, said Brexit was now in danger of being scuttled by the establishment.
