How did YOUR MP vote in crucial Brexit decisions?

How did YOUR MP vote in crucial Brexit decisions?

Thursday's vote does not mean a delay is guaranteed; European Union consent is needed, and the default date for Britain to leave if there is no agreement is still March 29. He also specified his support towards favoring a "public vote" towards Brexit, if the Labour party alternate deal was rejected by Parliament.

The prime minister thus plans to make a third attempt to have parliament agree to a divorce deal - which the MPs have already rejected twice - next week, in advance of an upcoming European Union summit.

Theresa May has appealed to MPs' "patriotism" and urged them to cast aside their differences by voting for her Brexit deal to save her premiership.

Further talks are expected over the coming days with the Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) in the hope that persuading the 10 Northern Irish MPs to back the deal will help sway scores of Tory Eurosceptics to fall into line.

Darren Grimes, the Vote Leave campaigner who became known as the Brexit martyr after he was controversially punished by the Electoral Commission, also called on pro-Brexit MPs to vote with Mrs May.

Unless May can get a Brexit deal approved by the British parliament, then she will have to decide whether to delay or cancel Brexit or thrust the world's fifth largest economy into chaos by leaving without a deal. He said there were now two options: "To vote for the deal and leave in orderly way or a long delay and I think that would be a disaster".

The vote against a no-deal Brexit was non-binding, but investors believe Britain will now avert a disorderly Brexit that would severely damage its economy.

May has essentially handed Brexit supporters an ultimatum - ratify her deal by Wednesday or face a long delay to Brexit that would open up the possibility that Britain never even leaves.

However, that vote was not legally-binding - and under current law the United Kingdom could still leave without a deal on 29 March. They have amended various business motions to try to carve out some parliamentary time (the government normally controls the agenda) to change the process by which parliament was considering Brexit. If her deal falls again, and there is no attempt at a fourth vote, there might be a longer extension, possibly until at least December 2020, which is when the planned transition period, had a withdrawal been agreed, was planned to end.

One eurosceptic Conservative lawmaker Daniel Kawczynski said on Saturday he will now back May's deal because otherwise there is a risk Brexit may not happen.

"We've already passed the legislation to provide for a no-deal Brexit, we have the Common Travel Area and this package of measures to support incomes and jobs".
