British MPs vote against bid to prevent no-deal Brexit

British MPs vote against bid to prevent no-deal Brexit
British lawmakers voted on January 29 against a bid to prevent a no-deal Brexit by wresting control of the negotiations from Prime Minister Theresa May if she fails to secure concessions from the European Union (EU). They also voted to reject a chaotic no-deal Brexit by 318 to 310 votes, but backed May’s bid to change the withdrawal agreement struck with the EU.

The parliament members (MPs) also voted in favour of an amendment backed by the government to renegotiate her Brexit deal with the EU and seek ‘alternative arrangements’ to the controversial Irish backstop, which seeks to avert a hard border between the United Kingdom and Ireland after Brexit. The amendment, tabled by Tory MP Graham Brady, was passed by 317 votes to 301.

Lawmakers voted 321 to 298 against amendment B, put forward by Labour Party lawmaker Yvette Cooper, which sought to give parliament the power to legislate a delay in the United Kingdom’s departure if the government failed to secure a deal in Brussels that parliament could approve, according to British media reports.

With the Brexit date March 29 only two months away, the British parliament was trying to find a way forward by voting on different amendments, though none of the first four that were voted on were approved.

Parliament has been in deadlock since May's Brexit plan was recently rejected by an overwhelming majority of lawmakers. (DS)
