MPs seize control of Brexit process

Wed 27 Mar 2019, 11:28:20
British Prime Minister Theresa May is in trouble again as three of her ministers and many MPs from her own party backed an amendment to seize control of Brexit by 329 to 302 votes. The motion in the House of Commons called for alternatives to May's controversial European Union exit bill, earlier rejected twice by Parliament.

Foreign Affairs Minister Alistair Burt, Health Minister Steve Brine, and Business Minister Richard Harrington who went against the Cabinet's collective responsibility principle to vote for the amendment resigned from government.

EU leaders had offered Britain a Brexit delay until May 22, if May's deal is passed this week. However, without that Parliament backing, she must return to Brussels before April 12 and set out an alternative plan.

Ms. May however,  said that she has not given up hope of bringing back her exit bill for a third "meaningful vote" this week, which could take place tomorrow.
