MPs REJECT amendment requesting to delay Brexit until June 30

What happens now? May will seek another parliamentary vote next week.

But 17 Labour MPs defied party orders and voted to oppose another referendum - while 24 Labour MPs rebelled to vote in favor of one.

The vote was defeated by a margin of 334 votes to 85, meaning it would not have passed even if Labour MPs who abstained had supported it. The full complement of presidents and prime ministers have not formally discussed this option together, and with populist Euroskeptics expected to make big gains in May's European Parliament elections, some leaders are anxious that Brexit could continue to "pollute" the EU agenda.

Discussing the no-deal Brexit that numerous marchers are calling for, he said: "The impact that will have on businesses and on prices, and on the availability of things like medicines and so forth, it doesn't bear thinking about".

She blamed prime minister Theresa May for the current state of the Brexit negotiations and said after listening to people living in Makerfield could not support putting the question back to the people. And more Tory MPs now opposing May's Brexit deal have told party whips they would back it if the prime minister announced she would quit this summer. British lawmakers rejected May's Brexit deal in a 391-242 vote on Tuesday night.

Real Madrid 'make Jürgen Klopp their number one target'
Ex-Madrid president Roman Calderon is gaining support behind the scenes and it is understood he could force a presidential election.

A second referendum on European Union (EU) membership could be on the cards if Britain is to be granted an extension for a delay to Brexit. They also backed a much longer extension to Brexit if MPs fail to back the prime minister's plan. And according to European officials, there's some concern about the implications of the United Kingdom taking part in EU elections and continuing to have a role in decision-making even as it's heading for the exit. The argument now is really about what that new deal would look like, and with the extension of Article 50, they have a little more breathing space to process it. They didn't believe and neither would I have believed - having got warm words from people in authority "we will do this", and remember the 100-plus times "we will be out on 29 March" - absolutely not.

European Commission president Jean-Claude Juncker has said that Brexit should be completed before the EU elections in late May.

The prime minister thus plans to make a third attempt to have parliament agree to a divorce deal - which the MPs have already rejected twice - next week, in advance of an upcoming European Union summit. An extension of article 50 will require unanimous support from the 27 leaders.

May is expected to hold another Parliament vote on her Brexit deal before Wednesday.

Even if the deadline is unanimously agreed, the Prime Minister will still need to get a deal through the Houses of Commons, which is now divided on the matter of the Irish back-stop.
