MP’s voted tonight on a series of amendments which will shape the future of the Brexit process.

Earlier in the day, Prime Minister Theresa May announced her intention to try and renegotiate the Withdrawal Agreement following it’s historic defeat. She also expressed her support for the amendment laid down by Sir Graham Brady which would seek a legally binding change to the infamous ‘backstop’ agreement. The amendment was also supported by the Eurosceptic European Reform Group.

The ‘Brexit Delaying’ amendment of note was tabled by Labour MP Yvette Cooper and Nick Boles, a Tory Remoaner. This would allow for the extension of Article 50 if no deal is reached by February 26th. Finally, Caroline Spelmen MP and Jack Dromey MP tabled another cross-party amendment which rejected a no deal or WTO Brexit.

Coopers amendment fell by 321 to 298 votes and unsurprisingly.

Spelmen’s amendment also passed. It won by 318  to 310 votes.

Although the amendment is not legally binding, it is another clear indication that MP’s are simply not willing to countenance a WTO Brexit.

    Well what the hell did the government give us a vote to stay or leave the EU. They are all sore losers and have probably got pensions or shares within the EU, it was a waste of shoe leather for me to turn out and vote.This is a betrayal and a total waste of time. These MPs should lower their heads in shame, it’s obvious the working class people of this Country have no say or a legal vote in this Country. Then you wonder why the EU won’t negotiate with us anymore, they have now got us over a barrel and they know it.

    When you are a local (aka in a country in Europe) politician or bureaucrat, you hold your job at the voters of your constituency’s mercy.
    If you mess up those voters can throw you into the gutter.
    When you are an EU (aka elitist club) politician or bureaucrat, you hold your job as long as your membership fee in the EU elitist club is paid and you hail and back whatever the EU dictatorship demand, even if it goes against the will of the people, as everyone in the EU elitist club are untouchable by the population. Oh and, ofcourse, being a member of the EU elitist club also has the advantage of opulent salaries and pension packages which the peasants can only dream of – as well as access to an array of unlimited tax-free goodies.
    So it is not difficult to understand that ALL (right, center, left) politicians and bureaucrats in Britain are hell-bent on staying with the EU. It’s due to personal gains, not because they want better for country and population!
