Brexit Vote Day

Today British MPs will vote on the Brexit deal Prime Minister Theresa May negotiated with the European Union. The British MPs choice will affect 66 million citizens once it leaves the EU on 29th March 2019.

All the calculations and predictions say that the parliament will vote against May’s deal, and she could lose by over 100 votes in 650 seater house.

The Prime Minister over the weekend hosted voices against the deal in a bid to gain their confidence. The EU campaigned for the current Brexit deal by issuing a public statement to assure the MPs in the House of Commons on Monday ahead of the crucial vote.

No matter what the parliament votes the Prime Minister May will look to be in command even if her deal fails the test. She will address the parliament shortly after the meaningful vote on her next course of actions.

Some Brexiteers feel that the PM could lose the vote by 200 votes, setting room for a hard exit which is what they always wanted.

The opposition Labour Party led by Jeremy Corbyn will demand for a fresh election if May’s deal fails, so that a new government could negotiate a fresh deal. The no-confidence motion will also be on cards for the opposition.
