All Brexit options are on the table: UK Conservatives chair

All Brexit options are on the table: UK Conservatives chair

French President Emmanuel Macron, speaking as parliament voted, said the European Union needed to accelerate no-deal planning and Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz said that unless Britain came up with a plan, there would be a "hard" Brexit.

"There are those who will say: 'The House has rejected every option so far, you'll probably lose so why bother?' I bother because this is the last opportunity to guarantee Brexit", May told the House of Commons.

Britain would then have to either leave the European Union on April 12 without a deal or come up with some interim plan, possibly a longer delay, by that date and then ask the European Union to agree to it. Lawmakers will try to forge a consensus themselves for some other Brexit strategy on Monday.

Lewis said MPs must consider possible next steps given that the updated Brexit deadline of April 12 is approaching.

Debate has been raging over whether there should be a soft Brexit (Britain leaves the EU, but remains in the bloc's single market and customs union) or a hard Brexit (Britain leaves the EU and its single market and customs union).

After Theresa May's Withdrawal Agreement was rejected for a third time where does that leave the Brexit process?

The BBC said government officials had not ruled out the possibility of a run-off vote in parliament next week between the most popular option proposed by lawmakers and May's deal.

'In view of the rejection of the Withdrawal Agreement by the House of Commons, I have chose to call a European Council on 10 April, ' tweeted Donald Tusk, the head of the European Council.

The opposition Labour party, under its leader Jeremy Corbyn, have been calling for an election for months - particularly because they could be the greatest beneficiaries of the poll.

The immediate next step in terms of parliamentary process in the United Kingdom is another round of indicative votes tabled by non-ministerial lawmakers to be held next week.

Friday's vote, on the day that the country was originally due to leave the bloc, kept Britain in political turmoil.

Labour Party politician Lisa Nandy - who opposed May's deal said that she and her staff were called traitors by protesters as she tried to enter parliament to vote. Unlike many other news organizations, we have not put up a paywall.

The prospect of a wide-ranging post-Brexit free trade deal with the USA has not been universally welcomed in Britain.

"Parliament will continue this process on Monday and we've got to look at all the options".

She took office in the aftermath of the 2016 Brexit referendum which swept away her predecessor David Cameron.

The decision to reject a stripped-down version of May's divorce deal has left it totally unclear how, when or even whether Britain will leave the European Union, and plunges the three-year Brexit crisis to a deeper level of uncertainty.

But Northern Ireland's Democratic Unionist Party, which props up May's party, told ITV's Robert Peston they would vote against the withdrawal agreement over concerns that it treats the region differently from other parts of the UK.

However, it says her defeat was shared by some of her "enemies" in the Tory party, singling out former foreign secretary Boris Johnson and "ephemeral" former Brexit secretary Dominic Raab.

Back in the U.S. and the Wall Street Journal says "it's anyone's Brexit now".

MPs on Wednesday voted to change original Brexit departure day of March 29 in law to April 12 or May 22.

The force tweeted that by 9 p.m. local time, two people had been arrested for assault, one for being drunk and disorderly, one for assaulting a police officer, and one who was wanted for an offense in another part of the country.
