Brexit vote: Only 40 MPs won over by assurances

Brexit vote: Only 40 MPs won over by assurances

Speaking after the defeat and struggling with her voice, she said: "I continue to believe that by far the best outcome is the United Kingdom leaves the European Union in an orderly fashion with a deal".

"MPs now need to rule out no deal as soon as possible and, after two-and-a-half years of failed negotiations, making Britain a laughing stock, it is time for a public vote".

Labour is set to help block a no deal Brexit tonight in another crunch vote in the House of Commons.

May's deal was defeated 391 to 242 on Tuesday evening and will be followed on Wednesday by a debate and vote in the House of Commons on the prospect of the United Kingdom leaving the European Union with "no deal" in place - which MPs are also expected to reject.

Jeremy Corbyn will whip his MPs to vote against a plan that would see the United Kingdom crash out of Europe without agreements for future co-operation with Brussels.

Asked if there should be a second referendum, Mr Cameron added: "What happened last night is some people who've always wanted Brexit have voted against it again and this is exasperating for the Prime Minister".

Mrs May said that the choices facing the United Kingdom were "unenviable", but because of the rejection of her deal, "they are choices that must be faced".

Speaking after the vote, Eastern region Labour MEP Alex Mayer said: "Not a single sentence, word or comma changed in the withdrawal agreement text since the last time Theresa May put the deal to Parliament".

She said: "Mrs May's authority has been eroded among both hardline ERG Brexiteers, and Remain-leaning Cabinet ministers, who appear to be breaking with collective responsibility altogether".

Pressed on Labour's position on a second referendum she said: 'We have not ruled out a People's Vote but our priority is securing a deal'.

He called for no deal to be taken off the table, and says the Labour Party's proposal is the suitable alternative.

But Corbyn made no mention of a second referendum - which the party is theoretically committed to supporting if it can not secure a general election - in his remarks after the vote, and hardly referred to it in his earlier speech in the Commons debate, it noted. The impasse can only be solved in the UK.

Boris Johnson is among leadership candidates sizing up their chances.
