Commons ERUPTS as Corbyn’s call for second Brexit vote is slashed

MPs approved by 412 to 202 a motion setting out the option to have a short delay by agreeing to a Brexit deal by March 20 or a longer delay if no deal can be agreed in time.

The Prime Minister also achieved a victory today as the House rejected two amendments that would have given the chance to MPs to hold a series of indicative votes on Brexit next week.

Speaker John Bercow took everyone by surprise as he chose to put to a vote on the amendment tabled by Sarah Wollaston, one of the 11 members of the Independent Group, demanding an extension of Article 50 to allow a second Brexit referendum to take place.

The amendment did not find a majority in Parliament, as MPs from the Labour Party were whipped to vote it down and advised by the People’s Vote campaign not to support a vote on a second Brexit referendum yet.

The vote on the no deal was not legally binding, which means that until the Government doesn’t change the legislation, the UK is still leaving on March 29, with or without a deal.
