Brexit: Theresa May loses vote, demonstrators take to streets

British Prime Minister Theresa May's Brexit deal was rejected by lawmakers on Jan 15 2019 With May’s monumental defeat, no end in sight for Brexit

The British government and European Union leaders say their agreement is the best compromise available, and despite her historic defeat, May said Tuesday it remained the only option. Instead, potential outcomes of a no vote include a no-deal Brexit on March 29, an extension of that deadline, or a general election or a second referendum. According to the BBC and other sources, this was the largest legislative defeat for a sitting government in British history.

There is nothing to stop the government bringing back the same deal again and again to the House of Commons until either MPs accept it, or seek to oust May, who faces a no-confidence vote on Wednesday called by the opposition Labour Party.

As many as 114 Conservative MPs had been expected to rebel on the morning of the vote, but the actual number turned out to be slightly higher at 118.

The second option, Macron said, is improving the existing deal.

Former prime minister Tony Abbott has strongly suggested Britain should walk away from negotiations, using Twitter to ask: "What's wrong with a no deal?".

The Tory was steadfast in rejecting claims that the current British government would not delay Article 50, and that while a "no-deal" Brexit is not ideal, it is, however, the legal default in a worst-case scenario.

Euro MPs back Brexit delay in letter to Britain
It will take place just hours before the UK Parliament votes on Theresa May's draft European Union withdrawal deal. Labour has tabled a no confidence motion in the government but the DUP has said it will support Mrs May.

Labour's finance minister-in-waiting, John McDonnell, said May could eventually get a deal through parliament if she negotiated a compromise with his party.

May made it her mission to carry out the wishes of voters after she became premier in July 2016, putting aside her own initial misgivings and stating repeatedly that "Brexit means Brexit".

If the deal fails to pass, May will only have until January 21 to present parliament with a "Plan B" for Brexit.

Meanwhile, May has until Monday to present a new option or options to Parliament. "We could see 20 or 30 miles of lorry traffic queuing towards Dover, which is the No. 1 port with the continent".

While she's not yet publicly contemplating extending the Brexit deadline, May gave a heavy hint that she won't allow the U.K.to fall out of the European Union with no deal. After Brexit, the border will be the U.K.'s only land frontier with the EU.

The small Northern Irish DUP party which props up May's minority government and refused to back the deal said it would stand behind May in the no-confidence vote. It would basically be saying, 'We can't work this out.

Members of parliament on Tuesday voted 432 to 202 to rebuff the deal, giving May a crushing defeat with a 230-margin. "That is an extraordinary thing for a democracy to do". "A new plan is needed immediately".

A roughly 20-year-old peace accord keeps the border open between the Republic of Ireland, which is an European Union member, and Northern Ireland, which is part of the U.K. But that's a problem if the European Union and U.K. are to separate. Both sides are equally in the dark about the long-term result of the country's exit from the EU.

September 20, 2018 - At a meeting of European leaders in Salzburg, the PM was delivered a blow as they rejected her proposals out of hand, and EU Council boss Donald Tusk mocked her on Instagram.

Certain political forces, including the ruling Conservative Party and opposition lawmakers, suggested that the United Kingdom government had made too many compromises, agreeing to a so-called soft Brexit.

Still, such pledges failed to placate the deal's many skeptics, who said the letter fell short of the legally binding changes to the draft text that they had been seeking.
