Labour leader Corbyn demands general election after Theresa May’s Brexit defeat

Prime Minister Theresa May has given up any pretence of leading Britain by allowing her MPs to vote according to their own beliefs rather than along party lines on Wednesday, the Labour Party said on Tuesday.

It has been another shattering defeat for the Government.

Today (Wednesday), MPs will get a vote on whether the United Kingdom should leave without a deal on March 29 and, if that is rejected, a vote on Thursday on whether Brexit should be delayed.

He then told Radio 5 Live that Theresa May has not allowed discussion of "alternative compromises" and "never been allowed to debate and vote on anything other than her deal".

Speaking after the defeat and struggling with her voice, she said: "I continue to believe that by far the best outcome is the United Kingdom leaves the European Union in an orderly fashion with a deal".

Opponents of Brexit have warned that leaving without a plan will throw Britain's economy into turmoil, while backers have dismissed those concerns as exaggerated.

Emma Lewell-Buck, MP for South Shields, said she was not surprised by the defeat of Theresa May's Brexit deal last night.

Mrs May agreed but insisted her deal is a "good deal" and she wants the United Kingdom to leave with a good deal.

On his Facebook page, Mr Western has said: "This week, there are three key Brexit votes".

While the plans will see tariffs on 87 percent of goods, imported to the United Kingdom cut to zero, the price of some imports, such as meats, will rise.

But ministers said products from the European Union including beef, pork, chicken, butter, cheese and fish would also be subject to import taxes expected to push up prices in the supermarkets from March 29 if there is no deal.

Mrs May said a customs union was part of proposals put forward by Labour but argued these had "already been rejected" by MPs.

She added: "I don't believe there is a deal out there that is better than we have now". "We are not going to have a new leader", he said.

The agreement was rejected last night by 149 votes, an improvement of 81 on the first defeat, in January.

Ms Trehan said the CBI had reacted with "horror" at the tariffs being announced as a potential option just two weeks away from March 29.

Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn said the government must accept its deal does not have the support of the House.
