What happens now with Brexit? May's big defeat leaves no clear options

Brexit in Focus

Meanwhile, lawmakers from both government and opposition parties are trying to wrest control of the Brexit process from a paralyzed government, so that lawmakers can direct planning for Britain's departure from the EU.

The Labour's leader's motion of no confidence failed to win support from any Conservative rebels, falling by 325 votes to 306. The result handed Ms.

May invited the leaders of parliamentary parties to meet with her individually, beginning on Wednesday evening.

The UK's political process gives the executive unique powers to control how parliament does business, and at the same time Brexit has been such a divisive issue in the UK that alternatives have been hard to advance - enabling her to set the agenda unopposed.

British Prime Minister Theresa May won a vital confidence vote in the House of Commons Wednesday, averting a snap general election that could have ushered in a Labour government. In a televised statement later outside 10 Downing St., Ms.

If parliament forces the issue, the next question will be how the referendum question is phrased (e.g., options for May's deal, another deal, or no Brexit).

"What Jeremy Corbyn wants to do is disrupt government and disrupt the nation at a crucial time by seeking a general election", Leadsom told BBC Radio.

EU Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier said the bloc is stepping up preparations for a "no-deal" departure by Britain after Parliament's actions left the bloc "fearing more than ever that there is a risk" of a chaotic departure. May and the MPs will get isn't clear.

He alone supplied three passes in the build-up to Suarez's opener. "Once we scored, the game opened up for us" said Suarez. That came against Eibar on Sunday evening and was followed by Real Madrid's victory over Real Betis .

While there are a number of options, some are more realistic than others.

But he also warned that the ratification of the withdrawal agreement is a precondition to creating mutual trust ahead of negotiating the future EU-UK trade deal.

Companies warned of catastrophic job losses and chaos at ports if there was a no-deal Brexit that would see trade with the European Union switch to World Trade Organization rules, which many argue could disrupt supply chains relying on friction-free trade.

May has ruled out both staying in the EU's customs union and the single market in the wake referendum, under pressure from hardline Brexiteers in her Conservative party.

"I don't think the people in this country would rejoice at the prospect tonight if a general election were to be called", said Nigel Dodds, the DUP's leader in Parliament.

The precedent for the government in 2019 is not a good one.

Staring directly at Corbyn, May said that everyone who thought they could go to Brussels and get a better deal was deluding themselves. "This increases the possibility that Britain will ask for an extension to Article 50 - i.e., a delay of Brexit past the official 29 March date - while it tries to figure out something that they can all agree on", said Marshall Gittler, chief strategist at ACLS Global, in a note to clients. May has ruled out such an extension, but the European Union is already reportedly preparing for the possibility of a months-long Brexit delay.

She has until Monday to return with a plan B. Her office has been tight-lipped about what alternatives she might offer. Not everyone believes her, it would seem, but the view from Brussels is solid.

Samsung Galaxy S10 to be unveiled in February
Word on the street is that we are about to see a plethora of new Galaxy S10 devices introduced in a little more than a month. If it turns out to be true, the S10+ will have the same battery size as last year's Galaxy Note 9.

Wednesday's result has led to a growing belief a Norway-style model would win a majority of MPs over.

As the uncertainty escalated, business leaders lashed out over the political chaos.

While some European Union leaders and many British lawmakers have suggested that Britain might want to change its mind, Britain's leaders are concerned that to stop Brexit could alienate the 17.4 million people who voted to leave.

British businesses urged politicians to unite.

"Please, please, tell us finally what you want to achieve", Weber said.

It's an optimistic and risky strategy, given the looming Brexit deadline. Mr.de Ruyter said the centre had been tracking the auto industry and its approach to Brexit.

How do you think the United Kingdom will most likely proceed in the Brexit process? "So a lot, of course, are panicking now". "Nothing about how, or even if it intends to honor the decision the British people took in a referendum Parliament chose to hold", May said to loud jeers from opposing MPs.
