This week MPs in the UK voted against Prime Minister Theresa May’s proposed Brexit deal, but also voted against leaving the European Union without a deal of some sort. This means that May must apply for an extension to Article 50, which is the transition plan enacted by any member state that wants to withdraw from the EU.
Members of Parliament will vote later on Thursday whether to ask the EU for permission to delay Brexit beyond the 29 March departure date. It comes after MPs voted on Wednesday evening to reject a no-deal Brexit under any circumstances. Prime Minister Theresa May could also make a third attempt to get her EU withdrawal deal through Parliament in the next few days.
Business groups are exasperated after the Prime Minister's EU withdrawal plan was again rejected by Parliament. They called on MPs to shut down the possibility of a no-deal Brexit and come up with a clear EU exit plan. The City UK, the finance industry body, said leaving without a deal would be an own goal of historic proportions.
