Theresa May / #Brexit

Yesterday, MPs have voted to take control of the next steps of the Brexit process – potentially paving the way for a ‘softer Brexit’.

An amendment put forward by Tory MP Sir Oliver Letwin won by 329 votes to 302 – a majority of 27.

The controversial cross-party amendment allows MPs to decide on their favorite alternative to May’s deal by holding ‘indicative votes’ – where MPs can decide which option they prefer

Theresa May has suffered yet another Parliamentary defeat after the Commons voted to take control of of the next steps of the Brexit process.

This does not mean MPs are handed direct control of the UK’s exit from the EU, but could mean they are able to make more formal changes to the process.

It means MPs will take control of the Commons order paper from 2pm on Wednesday, with Sir Oliver suggesting voting could carry on over several days to establish if there was a proposal the House could support .

Just minutes before the vote, three pro-EU government ministers resigned in order to throw their support behind the deal.

Harrington accused the the Government of ‘playing roulette’ with the lives and livelihoods of the people of Britain in its handling of Brexit.

Other high profile Toriy rebels included former ministers Ken Clarke, Nicky Morgan, Justine Greening, Andrew Mitchell, Sam Gyimah, Damian Green, Alberto Costa and Dominic Grieve, plus Damian Collins, chairman of the Culture Committee.

May made it clear she would not feel bound by the result of any indicative votes – which could include a ‘softer’ Norway-style deal, or a second referendum.

‘No Government could give a blank cheque to commit to an outcome without knowing what it is,’ she said.

‘So I cannot commit the Government to delivering the outcome of any votes held by this House. But I do commit to engaging constructively with this process.’

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn welcomed the result, hailing the fact the House had now ‘taken control’.

Is this woman that controversial? I think David Cameroon's reign as prime minister wasn't like this

I cannot blame her. The Brexit is an historic event that is really tasking.

I admire her resilience and courage.
