UK Parliament Rejects Brexit Alternatives — Again
British lawmakers voted down four different alternatives yesterday to Prime Minister Theresa May’s withdrawal agreement, including a second referendum. May is expected to hold a five-hour Cabinet meeting today to explore her government’s next steps. Meanwhile, in response to Monday’s vote, the EU’s chief negotiator warned a no-deal Brexit was increasingly likely, though “we can still hope to avoid it.”
What now? In the lead-up to an April 10 summit in Brussels, London must produce a new Brexit blueprint or risk leaving the bloc without any economic or political game plan.
