Speaker John Bercow has selected eight amendments for MPs to debate during the House of Commons including amendments to call for a public vote on the deal, no deal, a customs union, a Norway plus or "Common Market 2.0" style deal and for the Labour opposition's "alternative Brexit plan".

The EU is reportedly considering delaying Brexit by up to 2 years. The proposal comes after May once again delayed a parliamentary vote on her deal. MPs will now not get to vote on it until March 12, just days before Britain is due to crash out of the EU. Senior ministers in May’s government are threatening to resign this week unless she rules out a no-deal Brexit. LONDON – Theresa May is under growing public pressure from senior members of her government to rule out leaving the EU without a deal, as European diplomats consider delaying Brexit by up to two years. The UK is due to leave the EU on March 29. However, the prime minister once again delayed a parliamentary vote on her Brexit deal this week in order to head off another heavy defeat. MPs are now not expected to vote again on the deal until March 12, just 17 days before Britain is due to crash out without a deal. With the prospect of a chaotic exit looming, senior EU figures are now reportedly considering … [Read more...] about Brexit could be delayed by 2 years as Theresa May again postpones vote on her deal
Today - Tuesday, January 15 - essentially spells D-day for British Prime Minister Theresa May as MPs take their seats in the House of Commons to deliver their verdict on her government's Brexit deal. After days of debate, they will vote on both the withdrawal agreement, a legally-binding, nearly 600 page document that sets out how the UK leaves the European Union, and the future political framework — a set of ambitions for a European Union (EU)-UK trade deal. Adding pressure to the mix, it follows a week of Brexit defeats for May after MPs voted last Wednesday in favour of a limited period to present next steps on Brexit if the current deal is rebuffed. Had the vote on May's deal taken place when it was originally planned back in December, the government would have 21 days to return to the Commons to set out what it plans to do next, in the event of a deal rejection. But now, May would be given just three days to present a Brexit plan B. What are the possible outcomes of the … [Read more...] about What could happen after MPs vote on the Brexit deal?
Theresa May’s Brexit plan looks set to be defeated by a huge margin in parliament on Tuesday. Despite her warnings that voting down the deal could place Brexit itself in jeopardy, scores of anti-EU Tories seem prepared to defeat the government when they march through the voting lobbies. While defeat seems a certainty, what comes next is by no means as clear. Here are the possible outcomes: Could there be 'no deal'? If the deal is voted down, the UK could leave the EU without a deal. This would be the outcome if parliament is unable to come to a consensus on what happens next. The EU has repeatedly claimed renegotiations will not be reopened on the withdrawal agreement, and if that is the case, and this really is the only deal in town for Theresa May, the UK will be leaving without a withdrawal agreement on March 29. Could Brexit be delayed? Brexit could be delayed by two methods. The first is the UK could withdraw Article 50. The government does not need the consent of other EU … [Read more...] about Brexit: What happens if Theresa May loses the vote on her deal?
