Parliament sounds death knell for Brexit deal

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

Parliament voted it down for the third time on the very day Britain was meant to leave the European Union.

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.

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

It was an emotional day for Brexiteers.

Crowds descended on parliament, some of them at the end of a long Brexit Betrayal protest march across England... pushing the 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 crash out suddenly on the new divorce date: April 12th - a hard Brexit that could rattle markets.

Avoiding it will mean requesting an extension from the EU, and that requires coming up with a plan.

Brussels says a hard Brexit is now likely, and has called an emergency meeting for April 10th.

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

They'll vote on options that include retaining a close future relationship via a customs union -- and a referendum on any new deal.

But many lawmakers believe the only way to move on from this deepening crisis is a general election, despite the fresh uncertainty that would bring.
