British MPs Reject Theresa May's Brexit Deal for a Third Time

British MPs Reject Theresa May's Brexit Deal for a Third Timeby 👨‍💻 Simon Baxendale

On the day when the UK was set to leave the European Union, Brexit seemed to become even more complicated. Not just for British citizens, but for those in politics itself – as quite where the UK will stand with regard to a deal or no deal situation has grown ever-more confusing. Prime Minister Theresa May, who has already attempted to put her own proposal for a Brexit deal with the European Union through Parliament twice, was defeated for a third time with a majority of 58 votes rejecting her offer.

It has been another turbulent week in British politics, where the formal deadline for Brexit appears to have been pushed forward to at least early to mid-April. May had outright stated, too, that she would be willing to stand down as leader as of May 22nd this year providing her deal was to be passed through Parliament. However, not even the offer for the leader to fall on her sword was accepted by MPs – who have also remained split on other potential ways to resolve the complex discussions at this late stage in proceedings.

Some political analysts are suggesting that a no-deal situation (which will see the UK leave the EU without any form of safety net from the Union) or an extensive delay are likely to be the formal outcomes at this stage in proceedings. It has recently been suggested that Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn will insist his MPs vote in favor of a second referendum on how to approach Brexit – but this option has remained unpopular for some time.

Time, however, continues to drip through Parliament’s fingers. As reported by The Guardian, MPs will meet again next week to discuss the most popular alternative options in the face of Brexit next week. PM May, however, appears to be unsure as to quite where Parliament will lead following weeks of voting and no clear consensus.

“The implications of the house’s decision are grave,” May advised in light of her deal being rejected for a third time. “I fear we are reaching the limits of this process in this house.”

“This government will continue to press for the orderly Brexit that the result of the referendum demands.”

Corbyn, opposing May, has demanded that the PM stand down and to trigger another General Election – which could see the balance of decision-making change dramatically in the space of just a few weeks.

On the day Brexit was supposed to go through – it seems British MPs are no closer to reaching a consensus that a majority can be happy with.
