May talks of ‘new leadership’ to handle Brexit as MPs reject alternative paths

“I can now announce the result of today's recorded vote on motions relating to the United Kingdom's withdrawal from and future relationship with the European Union. In respect of Mr. Baron's motion B (No Deal), the ayes were 160, the noes were 400. So the noes have it," said John Bercow, the speaker of the house of commons. "In respect of Mr. Nicholas Bole's motion D, Common Market 2.0, the ayes were 188, the noes were 283, so the noes have it. In respect of George Eustice's motion H, EFTA and EEA, the ayes were 65, the noes were 377, so the noes have it. In respect of Mr. Kenneth Clarke's motion J, Customs Union, the ayes were 264, the noes were 272. So the noes have it." The Wednesday vote came after Prime Minister Theresa May said she would step down if her Brexit divorce deal is adopted. The options included abandoning Brexit for good, forging closer economic ties with the European Union, and putting any final outcome to vote again. Speaking of the "desire for a new approach and new leadership," the premier has put her job on line in an effort to sell her deal to the lawmakers. May addressed a packed meeting of her Conservative MPs in parliament to urge them to let "complete our historic duty," May has been trying to deliver on the 2016 referendum, in which Britons chose to exit the bloc.
