Brexit – more votes and more confusion!

MPs have met in the House of Parliament to participate in two votes relating to Brexit. After these two votes MPs have decided that the Brexit Bill Timetable has been rejected by a majority of 14 votes.

The votes were:

Yes – 308

No – 322

This means that Brexit will in all probability now be delayed, and the EU will now have to decide how to answer the request for a delay from the Prime Minister which was submitted at the weekend.

The Prime Minister said that he will look to accelerate plans for a No Deal Brexit as he still intends to leave the EU on  the 31 October. He did however state that the House is happy at the win of the first vote – the Withdrawal Agreement Bill winning the vote.

With nine days left until The UK is due to leave the UK we await more news as to what will happen next. There is still talk of a General Election but as yet it’s not been confirmed.
