Conservative Party split down the middle as Parliament votes to delay Brexit

Former UKIP party leader Nigel Farage joins the start of the first leg of March to Leave the European Union in Sunderland England Saturday March 1

Mrs May allowed a free vote on the motion, with 188 of her own MPs, including the Secretary of State for Brexit, deciding against it, along with the Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) MPs from Northern Ireland on whom her minority government relies for a parliamentary majority.

She has warned lawmakers opposing the agreement that if it is rejected, Britain will need a much longer extension that could see Brexit postponed indefinitely.

Sterling has remained flat on Friday following the currency's best week of trading since January, with the pound finding support following two major Brexit votes in the House of Commons.

Lawmakers approved by 412 votes to 202 a motion setting out the option to ask the European Union for a short delay if parliament can agree on a Brexit deal by March 20 - or a longer delay if no deal can be agreed in time.

While German conservatives would prefer Britain to stay in the European Union or else adopt Prime Minister Theresa May's Brexit divorce deal, senior conservative lawmaker Detlef Seif said that failing those scenarios he would back a delay until end-2020.

The vote against a no-deal Brexit was non-binding, but investors believe Britain will now avert a disorderly Brexit that would severely damage its economy.

The main motion was backed by MPs from across the various political parties, however most Conservative MPs voted against the motion.

Most Conservative MPs voted against delaying Brexit, including 7 cabinet members Mrs.

For several months the core of the alliance have been meeting nearly daily, with a larger meeting of the group about once a week. He said there were now two options: "To vote for the deal and leave in orderly way or a long delay and I think that would be a disaster".

The government whipped its MPs to vote against all proposed amendments; while the Labour party announced before the vote that it would not formally back any amendment supporting a second referendum.

Amendment G, tabled by Conservative Christopher Chope, advocated a two-month delay to Brexit "for the specific goal of replacing the United Kingdom negotiating team".

It sets the terms on which a member country will leave the EU.

Speaking to the BBC, East Belfast MP Gavin Robinson said if there was a short delay to implement an agreement endorsement in parliament it would be "pragmatic". But 17 Labour MPs defied party orders and voted to oppose another referendum - while 24 Labour MPs rebelled to vote in favor of one.
