#AceNewsReport – Apr.01: Theresa May is holding a mass meeting with some of the 170 Conservative MPs who signed a letter to her demanding the UK leaves the EU on April 12 ‘with or without a deal’. MPs have been sent text messages – seen by The Telegraph – asking them to be ready to meet Mrs May Ace Newsroom Live http://bitly.com/2I5xQ4c
MPs have again failed to agree on proposals on the next steps for #Brexit: The votes were not legally binding, so the government would not have been forced to adopt the proposals.
Following the failure of his own motion to stay in the Single Market – known as Common Market 2.0 – Nick Boles resigned from the Conservative Party: In a point of order following the results, the MP for Grantham and Stamford said he could “no longer sit for this party”, adding: “I have done everything I can to find a compromise.”As he left the Commons, MPs were heard shouting, “don’t go Nick”, and others applauded him.
Brexit Secretary Stephen Barclay said the “only option” left was to find a way forward that allows the UK to leave the EU with a deal: “The government continues to believe that the best course of action is to do so as soon as possible,” he said……..”If the House is able to pass a deal this week it may still be possible to avoid holding European elections.”
The results of the votes were:
- Motion C: Committing the government to negotiating “a permanent and comprehensive UK-wide customs union with the EU” as part of any Brexit deal – proposed by Tory former chancellor Ken Clarke – lost by 273 votes for to 276 votes against
- Motion D: Referred to as Common Market 2.0, this option would mean joining the European Free Trade Association and European Economic Area – proposed by Tory MP Nick Boles – lost by 261 votes for to 282 votes against
- Motion E: This is for a confirmatory referendum, giving the public a vote to approve any Brexit deal passed by Parliament before it can be implemented – proposed by Labour MPs Peter Kyle and Phil Wilson – lost by 280 votes for to 292 votes against
- Motion G: The motion aims to prevent the UK leaving without a deal, including a vote on whether to revoke Article 50 – stopping Brexit – if the EU does not agree to an extension – proposed by the SNP’s Joanna Cherry – lost by 191 votes for to 292 votes against
