Theresa May ponders fourth bid to pass Brexit deal

Theresa May is looking for an alternative way forward after another failed vote on Brexit

Theresa May and her cabinet are looking for ways to bring her EU withdrawal agreement back to the Commons for a fourth attempt at winning MPs’ backing.

The PM said the UK would need “an alternative way forward” after her plan was defeated by 58 votes on Friday.

MPs from all parties will test support for other options during a second round of “indicative votes” on Monday.

However, Conservative Party chairman Brandon Lewis said the government did not support any of those options.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn refused to say whether his party would offer an option to remain in the EU during these votes, but said the obvious choice was “a good economic relationship with Europe”.

    Brexit, which most likely began as a sort of a novel, long shot, separatist idea fueled by an anti-immigrant undertones, appears to bearing its inevitable sour ftruit. A once proud nation and envied world power is increasingly becoming the laughing stock of the world. I have no hypocrital tears to share or undeserved sympathy to offer.

    England has messed up so many countries in the past so now is the time for them to self mess-up.

    I wouldn’t have predicted it, but at this point I wouldn’t be surprised if the UK crashes out of the EU with no deal.

    Give up Teresa. You aren’t working for the British people, only the UN. They want out, no further negotiations.
