Brits MPs fail to agree alternative Brexit plan

BBC

British MPs have failed to give an outright majority to any of the alternative Brexit options including no deal and Labour’s alternative deal.

Parliament is trying to find an alternative to Prime Minister Theresa May’s twice-rejected European Union exit deal.

The lawmakers have voted on options that included leaving the European Union (EU) without a deal, staying in the bloc’s customs union and single market, putting any exit deal to a public referendum, and canceling Brexit if the prospect of a no-deal departure gets close.

The strongest support was for a plan to stay in a customs union with the bloc after Brexit, which was defeated by eight votes that is 272 to 264.

Lawmakers plan to narrow the list of options down and hold more votes on Monday.

Britain has until 12th of next month to find a new plan or crash out of the EU without a deal.
