British parliament votes towards Brexit deal

A lone demonstrator stands by an entrance to Britain's parliament in London. And after a week of upheaval over Brexit in the House of Commons and angry exchanges on the streets outside, Britain's democratic system is looking a bit shaky, too.

Theresa May's Brexit plan rejected by British parliament The Brexit deal, painstakingly agreed upon with the European Union by PM Theresa May a year ago, has ultimately flopped, as MPs said a firm no.

Outside, rival protesters sounded off and squared off, with some aiming angry shouts of "traitor" at their opponents.

Second, the emergence of non-traditional divisions over Brexit suggest that Britain's political and electoral system is no longer fit for objective requiring the wide-open eyes of a new younger generation of politicians capable of relating aspiration to outcomes. "I hope he will reflect on that decision given the importance of this issue (Brexit) we should all be prepared to find a way forward", she said while referring to Corbyn.

Responding to the resounding defeat, May promised that her government "respects the will of the House" but said that it was her "duty to deliver" Brexit for British citizens who voted to leave the European Union in 2016.

"Following last week's vote it is clear that the government's approach had to change - and it has", May stated while outlining that she had held meetings with members across party lines excluding Jeremy Corbyn, the leader of the opposition whom she slammed for not participating in Brexit talks post last week's vote.

To describe it as a coup is overblown, she said.

Lawmakers are due to vote on May's "Plan B" on January 29.

The ministry said Duncan "reiterated that regardless of the outcome of Brexit, the rights of Romanian citizens in Britain would be respected".

He reiterated on Saturday: "I don't think it is any secret I firmly believe there should be a remain option - and there has to be a genuine leave option".

Westminster can not be allowed to hijack Brexit, says the United Kingdom's International Trade Secretary Liam Fox, in a warning to MPs who want to take more control over the country's departure from the European Union. "There was none of this messy compromise stuff". That could see tariffs imposed on goods moving between Britain and the European Union, sparking logjams at ports and shortages of essential supplies. An election the following year - called to cement the power of May's Conservatives - saw them lose their majority in Parliament, leaving her atop a fragile minority administration that struggles to pass legislation.

The two main political parties are irreconcilably split.

As the United Kingdom's tortuous two-and-a-half year crisis over European Union membership approaches its finale, the options for the world's fifth largest economy include a no-deal Brexit, a last-minute deal, a snap election or a delay to Brexit.

"And yet here he is, the leader of her Majesty's Opposition, refusing to talk to Theresa May over Brexit".

Watching this epic political spectacle lurching forward each day, Britons are bored, bemused, angry and afraid - sometimes all at the same time.

But campaigners for a second referendum say it's the only way to break the logjam.

"Brexit or a penalty shootout?"

"'And if there has to be some flexibility there, we have said that of course we are always willing to look at those possibilities".

However, May's Brexit plan was overwhelmingly rejected by both Pro-Remain and Brexiteer MPs in a historic Commons vote on Tuesday.

He said May's Brexit plan B was very similar to her original deal but it is starting to show a willingness to tweak the first deal.

"'We may have to see that this is a deal, we will have to swallow our pride, swallow what we would prefer, and vote for it".

"It's going to happen - because if it doesn't, it'll be the end of democracy", he said.

Away from the drama in Parliament, which dominated the week's news broadcasts, many voters just want politicians to sort something out.

Among those said have been present were International Trade Secretary Liam Fox, the Leader of the House Andrea Leadsom, and Home Secretary Sajid Javid. "We are absolutely not prepared for it". "That's what I would suggest, because with a team we can move anything, we can move any mountain". Sony said it did not plan to move jobs from Britain.

He said the government controls parliamentary time, so it will get what it wants.

"There are no easy routes out of the mess this Government has got us into on Brexit".
