Jeremy Corbyn's amendment rejected — BREXIT VOTE

April FrancisMar 02, 2019

The French president said there would need to be a clear goal to delaying the UK's exit from the European Union, in comments that will inevitably raise cross-party concerns among those seeking to take no-deal Brexit off the table.

All eyes will be on the House of Commons today (27 February) to watch the vote on Labour's Alternative Brexit plan - the pro-Europeans among us will be hoping that they lose.

However, Labour is still facing fresh divisions over the timing and strategy for backing a second referendum, with some anti-Brexit MPs anxious it will be put to a vote and defeated before there is a real chance of a parliamentary majority.

"When the meaningful vote comes back, and we are told maybe that might be on March 12, there are rumours. that it could be next week, we will see", he told ITV.

MPs later rejected a Scottish National Party amendment to rule out a no-deal Brexit in any circumstances and at any time by a margin of 288-324.

Speaking on Wednesday, Labour's shadow chancellor John McDonnell said that the party would table an amendment when Theresa May's Brexit deal returns to the Commons for another "meaningful vote".

"The prime minister's botched deal provides no certainty or guarantees for the future", he said, accusing May of running down the clock in a "grotesquely reckless" way.

They have scored some incredible polling figures - YouGov in the Times put them at an astonishing 18% earlier this week - and yet, after signalling they won't elect a leader or form an official party until the end of the year, they are in danger of losing momentum, of being a political supernova.

Another prominent Labour MP, who backs the campaign for a People's Vote, told Business Insider this week that the number of rebels could stretch to 40.

Corbyn, who voted against membership in 1975 and gave only reluctant backing to the 2016 campaign to remain in the European Union, on Wednesday gave ambiguous backing for another referendum, saying he would push for one alongside a national election.

They fought a third war in 1979 over East Pakistan, which gained its independence with the help of India and became Bangladesh. Pakistan called the attack a "grave aggression" and promised a "timely and effective response" by its own military.

But he insisted that Labour would also continue to push for "other available options" to prevent either Theresa May's deal or the United Kingdom crashing out without an agreement.

Analysts at the investment bank now believe Britain is more likely than not to delay Brexit, after United Kingdom prime minister Theresa May signalled she would let MPs vote on requesting an extension to Article 50.

"The leadership need to condemn this motion and those who made it to demonstrate that they are serious about removing institutional Jew hate from the party".

The decision by Jeremy Corbyn to back a second referendum is conditional - first he will try to get his alternative Brexit deal through the Commons.

How did your MP vote on previous Brexit debates?

There are probably 25 Labour MPs who would vote against it (even on a 3-line whip) and only a dozen or so Tory MPs publicly aligned with backing it.

Well at least no-deal looks to be off the table...


If May's bill fails, parliamentarians will vote on March 13 and 14 to decide whether to leave the European Union without any deal on March 29 or postpone it to a later date.

Before May's concessions on Tuesday, Cooper had been assembling support from all parties for an amendment that would have ensured parliament had a chance to block a no-deal exit and seek a delay.
