How MPs turned down their latest chance to help avoid no deal

UK PM Candidate Hunt Says: Parliament Likely to Block a No-Deal Brexit

But it wasn't enough to make up for the eight Labour MPs who opposed the motion and the few who actively abstained (most of those with "no vote recorded" were authorised absences).

British lawmakers on Wednesday (June 12) defeated an attempt led by the opposition Labour Party to try to block a no-deal Brexit by seizing control of the parliamentary agenda from the government.

Tory Brexiteer Andrew Bridgen said: "The Conservative Parliamentary Party is such a broad church that some of my colleagues appear to be no longer in the church".

MP's have rejected a cross-party motion to stop any future Prime Minister pushing through a no-deal Brexit.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn was overheard rebuking MPs, saying that they "won't be cheering in September" as they celebrated the defeat of the motion.

It seemed like the majority of the guys were under par through the first seven holes, and then nobody was making hay after that. Open. "Careful what you wish for, because I think we're going to see it come the weekend", McDowell said.

Some opinion polls have shown a slight shift in favour of remaining in the European Union, but there has yet to be a decisive change in attitudes and many in Britain say they have become increasingly bored by Brexit.

If that's not the case because the next Prime Minister fails to secure some kind of agreeable "alternative arrangements" solution and doesn't put the withdrawal agreement back to the Commons, there is an assumption that there will be another opportunity to block no deal.

"With every week and month that goes by in which we fail to deliver on our promise", he continued, "I am afraid we will further alienate not just our natural supporters but anyone who believes that politicians should deliver on their promises".

Former Conservative MP Nick Boles, who flew back to the United Kingdom to vote with Labour on Wednesday, also conceded that opponents of a no-deal departure were fast running out of options, apart from a confidence vote to bring down the government. Business Secretary Greg Clark has warned it would be "political suicide" for the party, and given his backing to Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt, saying he "has a clear understanding of how important it is to have a deal and to pursue the trading relationship with the European Union that I believe is vital".

Fear within the ranks of the Conservative Party has only been exasperated following the Peterborough by election last week, where a split vote between Nigel Farage's Brexit Party and the Conservatives saw a Labour victory in the leave stronghold.
