'Very Grave': Theresa May's Brexit Deal Fails For the Third Time

'Very Grave': Theresa May's Brexit Deal Fails For the Third Time”

However, the government chose to hold a vote on the withdrawal agreement only to secure a short delay to Brexit and avoid the United Kingdom taking part in European elections.

The EU commission told member states on Thursday (28 March) that conditions should be set for the United Kingdom to enter into future trade talks if the divorce deal is not approved by lawmakers in Britain.

"I fear we are reaching the limits of this process in this House", May she said.

Amid business warnings that a no-deal Brexit could mean crippling tariffs, border gridlock and shortages of goods, a visibly frustrated May said the vote had "grave" implications.

The EU executive, the commission, said a "no-deal" exit on April 12 was now "a likely scenario".

Voters are divided, many of them anxious and angry, and May blames MPs - but they in turn accuse her of refusing to countenance any alternative to her unpopular deal. That would, however, require the U.K.to participate in elections for the European Parliament in late May. Brexit? When do we want it now?

May had offered on Wednesday to resign if the deal passed, in a bid to win over eurosceptic rebels in her Conservative Party who support a more decisive break with the European Union than the divorce her deal offers.

As CBS News correspondent Mark Phillips reported from Parliament on Friday, there is no clear path to Brexit. Possible choices include asking the European Union for a long delay, calling new elections, or what is being called a "no-deal" exit.

"France is well prepared (for no deal) and will accelerate its preparations for such a scenario", the Elysee said in a statement.

The House was voting Friday on the exit agreement but not a separate, shorter declaration on future ties, which is also part of the agreed-upon divorce deal.

"The risk of a no-deal Brexit is very real", he added.

With the deal's rejection, she will face pressure to step aside and let a new Conservative Party leader take over negotiations with the EU.

MPs are expected to continue looking for a majority behind an alternative Brexit plan through a debate next Monday. The exercise did not provide clarity - all eight options on offer were defeated.

Many lawmakers believe the only way to solve the crisis will be a snap election - even though it would throw up a host of unknowns for the major parties.

Britain voted by 52 percent to 48 percent to leave the European Union in 2016.

Anti-Brexit protesters stand outside the Houses of Parliament in London, Britain, March 27, 2019.

"We need to conclude this process now in a way that avoids a no-deal", he said at a conference in London. "And that will mean we'll have complete control which is what we Brexiteers voted for".

"This government will continue to press for the orderly Brexit that the result of the referendum demands", she said.

"They're in their bubble in there".

There are still huge differences of opinion in London over key aspects of how any divorce should work, most notably how to keep goods and people flowing smoothly across the border between Northern Ireland (part of Britain) and Ireland (an independent nation and European Union member).

"Goodness gracious me. Look, you know, I wish he was on my team and not their team", Farage, a member of the European Parliament, told the AP. "There will be a lot of anger".

Well, it certainly wouldn't be the first time.

About 1.5km away, left-wingers were gathering for a competing counter march.

Among them was Mr David Malindine, 63, a retired teacher, who was preparing to march through what he called the "Remain" capital of Britain. "They have done so in higher numbers than previously", the source said.

One placard said: "Politicians worth their weight in cow dung".

Opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn said May should call for a general election in the wake of the vote.
