United Kingdom lawmakers vote to delay Brexit past March deadline

United Kingdom lawmakers vote to delay Brexit past March deadline

But Mr Bercow sparked fury among Brexiteers by blocking debate on another amendment, signed by 127 MPs, which sought to rule out a second European Union referendum.

Another day, another remarkable Brexit drama set to unfold in the House of Commons.

But he insisted that MPs should "not conclude anything" about his views from his decisions, insisted that he tried to "always do my best to be fair".

Donald Tusk, president of the European Council, said he had appealed to European nations to be open to a "long extension" if necessary.

Speaking in the Oval Office alongside Irish premier Leo Varadkar, Mr Trump said Brexit was "tearing a lot of countries apart".

The government is due to put a motion before parliament on whether or not to seek a delay to the Article 50 process, which now sets a deadline for agreeing a deal to leave the European Union by March 29.

Four separate motions were selected to vote on and all looked to amend Prime Minister Theresa May's call to push back the official March 29 Brexit date spelled out in Article 50.

Most Labour voters abstained on the vote after the party backed down from supporting a so-called People's Vote but 25 opposition MPs did vote in favour, against the orders of their party. "Maybe I shouldn't let you do it, I'll just get you in trouble". "But the House needs to face up to the consequences of the decisions it has taken".

With MPs considering seeking to extend Article 50, the U.S. president said Brexit was likely to be delayed.

The motion commits Prime Minister Theresa May's Conservative government to seek an extension until June 30 if Parliament approves a U.K. -EU withdrawal deal next week.

"I think it could have been negotiated in a different manner, frankly", Trump said.

May has made a deal with the European Union, but it has been overwhelmingly rejected twice in the House of Commons. Barnier clarified once again that the deal is not open for renegotiation, adding that his main concern is not an orderly Brexit, but to organize the future relationship, as the United Kingdom will remain "a close partner, a friend, and an ally".

"But I think we also have to explore other options for Parliament to express a view about how we resolve this impasse".

"She didn't listen to that and that's fine - she's got to do what she's got to do". "Join us now in working through that compromise, because we think MPs, in the interests of the country, will put party politics aside and do that".
