British Lawmakers again fail to agree on proposals for the next steps in the Brexit process; reject four possible alternative plans for Brexit; Theresa May to meet her cabinet to discuss next step.
In Brexit update, British Lawmakers voted against four possible alternative plans for Brexit on Monday after also rejecting the government’s deal with the European Union three times.
Proposed alternatives for retaining much closer economic ties after leaving the European Union, holding a second referendum or stopping Brexit to prevent a no-deal departure all failed to win a majority of votes in parliament.
The second referendum proposal garnered the most votes in favour, but was beaten by 292 votes against.
Following the vote, the government said the results demonstrated that its plan was the best and hinted that it could be put before parliament once again this week.
