British lawmakers reject Theresa May’s Brexit deal

Here's what you need to know about Brexit

"And that is not going to change however the House votes tomorrow", she told the House of Commons.

"You are not children in the playground - you are legislators", he said.

'At that point he should then follow the overwhelming feeling of the party and party members, which is to arrive in a place where we put this back to the British people in a people's vote, ' he told the BBC Radio 4 Today. A defeat on Tuesday would throw Brexit plans into disarray just weeks before the U.K.is due to withdraw from the bloc.

The prime minister is expected to brief parliament on the government's Plan B in three working days. Last week saw her 11th and 12th defeats.

"Every business will feel no deal is hurtling closer".

He said if it is defeated, Britain should continue to press the European Union for a deal that "respects the referendum but if Brussels' "intransigence" persists "we must be willing to leave the European Union at the end of March on World Trade Organisation terms".

That leaves the agreement facing likely defeat on a day of political drama brimming with a very British mix of high drama, low insults and convoluted parliamentary procedure. Labour legislator Tulip Siddiq delayed the scheduled cesarean birth of her son so she could attend, arriving in a wheelchair.

The Prime Minister is set to head back to Brussels in yet another attempt to secure concessions from the EU on the deal - something EU Commission president Jean-Claude Juncker has repeatedly said he is not willing to do.

Labour deputy leader Tom Watson posted on Twitter: "Tonight by 432 votes to 202, the PM has suffered the biggest defeat in the House of Commons in over 100 years".

The Commons Speaker, John Bercow, will decide which amendments can go forward to be voted on just before the vote on the deal itself.

If this doesn't work either, they propose giving the responsibility of coming up with a compromise deal to the Liaison Committee - which is made up of the chairmen and chairwomen of all the Commons select committees, drawn from opposition parties as well as the Conservatives.

She has also warned fellow Conservatives not to let the opposition Labour Party seize control of Brexit.

November 25, 2018 - A 599-page draft Withdrawal Agreement is published after unanimous approval by the European Union, but the terms of the backstop to prevent a hard border in Ireland spark anger among Brexiteers and the DUP.

Demonstrators protest opposite the Houses of Parliament in London.

Environment Secretary Michael Gove, meanwhile, urged parliament to join May in voting for her deal.

"I love my country and will vote against any deal that will harm it".

There are a total of 650 lawmakers in parliament.

Alyn and Deeside MP Mark Tami and Delyn MP David Hanson have both said they can't support the Brexit agreement now on the table and have indicated they will vote down the deal.

Speaking in Stoke, a Midlands city which delivered a heavy "Leave" vote in the June 2016 referendum, the prime minister warned that blocking Brexit "would risk a subversion of the democratic process".

The Leader of the House Andrea Leadsom insisted Mrs May was determined to continue fighting for her agreement in the best interests of the country.

British and European Union diplomats are now working on the assumption that the United Kingdom will leave the bloc later than the planned exit date of March 29 if Prime Minister Theresa May loses Tuesday's Brexit deal vote in Parliament.
