Will MPs force Theresa May to negotiate a customs union? Will the PM put her Brexit deal to a fourth vote?
Crimson Tazvinzwa, AIWA! NO!| British lawmakers will wrest control of the Brexit process for a second day on Monday in order to try to find a majority for an alternative way forward that could break the parliamentary deadlock over Prime Minister Theresa May’s proposed deal.
After one of the most tumultuous weeks in British politics since the 2016 referendum, it was still uncertain how, when or even if the United Kingdom will ever leave the bloc it first joined 46 years ago.
The first phase of so-called indicative votes held on March 27 did not show majority support for any options, but lawmakers hope a second round, likely on a narrower range of options, could see parliament coalesce behind a way forward.
Since the last round of votes, May’s deal has been rejected for a third time.
