Brexit deal rejected second time, triggers call for new approach

British lawmakers Wednesday voted for a motion rejecting the prospect of a "no-deal" Brexit, setting up a Thursday vote on whether to seek a postponement on the country's departure from the European Union, which is now planned for the end of March.

But lawmakers will finally be given the chance to vote on Wednesday night to avert such a "no deal" Brexit, and likely delay Britain's exit date, too, in what could be yet another blow to May's government.

The government motion for Thursday's vote said that if MPs backed May's Brexit deal in a third vote before March 20 - the day before an European Union summit - then she will ask for a short extension to allow for the treaty to be ratified.

After two-and-a-half years of negotiations and two failed attempts to pass a Brexit deal proposed by Prime Minister Theresa May, the vote against a no-deal exit still leaves undecided how, when and on what terms Britain will leave the club it joined in 1973.

Prime Minister Theresa May could also make a third attempt to get her European Union withdrawal deal through Parliament in the next few days.

The pound GBP= rose more than 2 percent on the rejection of "no-deal" and was headed for its biggest daily gain this year.

The EU has said time and time again that in order to grant the United Kingdom an extension, it would need to see a good justification for it and its duration.

Another eurosceptic Conservative lawmaker, Andrew Bridgen, said parliament no longer represented "the people", who had voted for Brexit, by 52 percent to 48, in a referendum in 2016.

"The government has been defeated again by an enormous majority", opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn said.

"If the House finds a way in the coming days to support a deal, it would allow the Government to seek a short limited technical extension to Article 50 to provide time to pass the necessary legislation and ratify the agreement we have reached with the European Union", she said.

The EU's chief Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier said London must decide what it wants from Brexit before Brussels will consider a delay.

Scotland's First Minister said that "the case for Scotland becoming an independent country has never been stronger" after MPs overwhelmingly rejected May's deal.

Without a direct response to the Dutch MEP's question, Farage said he would be "very happy for it to be a veto".

"We take note of the votes in the House of Commons this evening", a EU Commission spokeswoman said, adding that "to take no deal off the table, it is not enough to vote against no deal - you have to agree to a deal".

MPs on Tuesday rejected May's deal for a second time, raising the risk of severing 46 years of UK-EU ties overnight and causing an economic shock on both sides of the Channel. This would require extending Article 50 - the notification that Britain is leaving the EU. "Our "no-deal" preparations are now more important than ever before", the official said in a Twitter post.

British MPs on Wednesday voted overwhelmingly to reject an amendment which calls on the British government to pursue a managed no-deal Brexit on May 22.

The source warned that Mrs May had to tell Brussels her plans the moment MPs asked for an extension to give the EU-27 time to prepare their response for next week.
