Brexit Deal: MPs Decide.  An amendment put forward by Sir Oliver Letwin has set-back the Boris Johnson Brexit deal. There was a division. The final vote was: 322 in favour and 306 against.  Boris lost.

His immediate response was that he would not request and extension to negotiations.  Boris added the law did not require him to do it.  Watch his reaction in the video.  What will he come up with next?

Earlier Boris Johnson addressed the house and laid out his deal and took questions from MPs. He outlined the meeting with the EU council and how it went.

The first amendment to be voted on was the controversial proposal put down by former Tory Sir Oliver Letwin.  He now sits as an independent.  There was a great deal of support from opposition parties which helped the amendment get through.

This would withhold parliamentary support for the deal unless and until legislation implementing the agreement in UK law is passed by MPs.

Prime Minister now needs to write to the EU requesting an extension of the negotiations.  He has until 11pm tonight to have it written and in the hands of the EU. But he made clear in parliament he would not do it.

The EU said it was up to the UK to “inform it of the next steps”.

Ministers have signalled a vote on the PM’s revised Brexit agreement could now take place on Monday, depending on what the Speaker decides.

It is the first Saturday parliamentary sitting for 37 years.  A good thing?  Does it matter when MPs sit in parliament.  Should they do it more often?

What do you think of this debate?  Do you agree with the arguments?  Have you been watching?  It has been three and a half years in the making.  Time to bring it to an end?  Will we leave on October 31?  If so will it be with a deal or no deal?  Was Boris right to refuse to ask for an extension?
