BREAKING: British MPs reject all Brexit options in second round of indicative votes

British MPs have again failed to agree on proposals on the next steps for Brexit.

The Commons voted on four motions for leaving the EU, including a customs union and a Norway-style arrangement – keeping the UK in the single market – but none gained a majority.

The votes were not legally binding, so the government would not have been forced to adopt the proposals.

Theresa May’s plan that she negotiated with the EU has been rejected twice by historic margins in Parliament.

The withdrawal agreement section of her deal was voted down again by MPs on Friday.

But the Commons can still avoid a no-deal Brexit, and avoid having to hold European elections, by voting for the PM’s deal again this week.

But the leader of the Labour Party, Jeremy Corbyn, says if May can put her deal to the house three times, the other options should get a third chance too.

Mrs May now has until 12 April to either seek a longer extension from the EU to take a different course or decide to leave the EU without a deal.
