British MPs Rejected Four Alternative Options for Brexit

British MPs Rejected Four Alternative Options for Brexit”

British MPs on Monday once again failed to find a majority on any alternative Brexit plan before them, leaving Britain's chaotic path towards leaving the European Union mired in uncertainty less than two weeks before its departure date.

But the Nationalists came under intense pressure for abstaining on an alternative Brexit proposal from Tory MP Nick Boles that would keep the United Kingdom in the single market and customs union.

The votes were not legally binding for Prime Minister Theresa May's government, which has seen its attempts to push through the PM's Withdrawal Agreement defeated on three separate occasions since January. But the deputy leader of the opposition Labour Party, Tom Watson, said his party was on election footing. Brexit Secretary Stephen Barclay warned MPs had still not voted for a clear way forward and confirmed the Cabinet would discuss the outcome tomorrow.

Motion G called for a revocation of the Article 50 legislation governing the UK's withdrawal if a deal is not agreed with the EU.

As they did ahead of last week's Brexit votes, leading European Union officials sought to put pressure on MPs to back an outcome resulting in the least damage to the bloc.

This has prompted the satirical magazine Private Eye to take its cue from the tale of Robert Bruce and the spider and poke fun at Britain's beleaguered Prime Minister on the cover of its current issue: "If at first you don't succeed, try, try, try, try, try, try, try, try, try, try, try, try, try, try, try, try, try, try, try, and try again".

After the voting, the government said that the results showed that its plan was best and indicated that it could be put before Parliament once again this week.

The option that came closest to getting a majority was a proposal to keep Britain in a customs union with the EU.

SNP MP Joanna Cherry joins with Dominic Grieve and MPs from other parties with this plan to seek an extension to the Brexit process, and if this is not possible then Parliament will choose between either no-deal or revoking Article 50.

- Public vote on any deal: For 280, against 292, lost by 12 votes.

The final option, which would have instructed government to revoke the legislation to leave the European Union a day before Britain is due to crash out, was rejected by 292 to 191. As London politics continue to churn, the European Union has concluded its contingency planning for a no-deal outcome.

May's impossible position means that a snap general election can not be ruled out.

"I'll bet you the Islington, middle-upper class, Champagne socialist Labour party have no idea how millions of their voters will feel about this complete and utter sell-out and let down of their own voters", a furious Nigel said.

While viewed as a compromise that could mobilise cross-party support, Boles refused to accede to demands that a "people's vote" be attached to his solution. "I regret therefore to announce I can no longer sit for this party". In this case, the most likely scenario is a general election.
