Theresa May’s Brexit Motion Defeated. Vote for 258 against 303. Majority of 45
Theresa May not there for the results of the motion. Labour leader was angry and demanded the PM be called to the despatch box. But the Speaker said Mrs May did not have to attend.
Up to 80 Tory backbenchers threatened to refuse to back the Prime Minister in the vote.
The MPs are allied to the European Research Group, chaired by senior Tory Jacob Rees-Mog. They claim the motion effectively rules out a no-deal Brexit. Several Cabinet ministers were also understood to be considering quitting if a lengthy delay in the withdrawal process is agreed.
It is getting hot! Not much time left. The UK leaves the EU March 29. This was voted for in a referendum in June 2016.
Despite this, clashes continue in and out of Parliament. Should it be a No Deal Brexit or a Theresa May deal?
Watch the results and the reaction from Jeremy Corbyn afterwards.
