Parliament sounds death knell for Brexit deal

That's the likely the death knell for Theresa May's Brexit deal.

As parliament voted it down for the third time.

In the end, by a decisive margin.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) UK PRIME MINISTER, THERESA MAY, SAYING: "Mr. Speaker, I fear we are reaching the limits of this process in this House.

This House has rejected no-deal.

It has rejected no Brexit.

On Wednesday it rejected all the variations of the deal on the table.

And today it has rejected approving the Withdrawal Agreement alone..." Now the British prime minister's position hangs in the balance.

She'd promised to quit if the deal was passed.

Now many even in her own party are saying her time is up, anyway.

This is an emotive day for Brexiteers -- the day Britain was supposed to leave the European Union.

Crowds descended on parliament, some of them at the end of a Brexit Betrayal protest march across England, to push their message that Britain must get out, regardless of party politics.

That now looks more uncertain than ever.

If Britain doesn't find a way forward, it will eject suddenly on the new divorce date, April 12th.

A hard Brexit that could rattle markets.

Now parliament will try to steer Brexit -- holding a second round of votes on Monday seeking concensus in the deeply divided house.

They'll vote on options that could include a close future relationship with a customs union, a second referendum, or cancelling Brexit.
