“But it also makes clear what the EU has made clear which is that if we don’t vote for the deal, which I very much hope we will get the chance to vote on next week, if we don’t vote for that deal then the only alternative is a long extension.
“That’s what the EU has said. Last night the House of Commons took no deal off the table. Tonight the House of Commons has taken a second referendum on the table.
“And I want to see the Prime Minster’s deal – delivering Brexit, delivering on the result of the referendum – and that is still just about possible although very difficult by the 29th March.”
Although the Prime Minister’s 149 margin was reduced from the record 230-vote defeat of the first “meaningful vote” in January, Mrs May was left far adrift from a majority with just 15 days to go to the scheduled date of Brexit on March 29.
However, she still proposed the prospect of a third “meaningful vote” on her EU Withdrawal Agreement within the next week.
Mrs May warned if the deal – which has already been twice rejected by massive majorities – is not approved, a longer extension will be needed, requiring Britain to take part in the European Parliament elections in May.
