How Europe reacted to Brexit deal defeat

Prime Minister Theresa May's deal to leave the European Union suffered an overwhelming defeat in parliament on Tuesday, leaving the country's future in limbo and manufacturers bracing for their "worst-case scenario", a no-deal Brexit.

In the wake of Tuesday's vote, it didn't take long for Twitter users to weigh in.

The result of the vote gave May a massive mandate to go back to Brussels and renegotiate a new deal, said Boris Johnson, former British foreign secretary and ex-Mayor of London. The House of Lords votes 321-152 in opposition to her deal.

That would throw the Brexit timetable, with Britain due to end its membership of the European Union on March 29, into chaos.

Most immediately, opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn may capitalise on a May defeat by tabling a motion of no confidence, possibly as soon as tonight.

The prime minister is expected to also face a backlash within her own party if her Brexit plans change.

If nothing else happens it will be a no-deal Brexit, This means - as you might expect - the United Kingdom leaving on 29 March without a formal agreement. It is hard to see any other proposal getting a majority in the House of Commons.

"Tonight's vote tells us nothing about what [Parliament] does support", she said, "nothing about how or even if it intends to honor the decision the British people took on a referendum Parliament chose to hold". A number of her Cabinet ministers have already made a decision to step down in protest of her plan, and Conservative whip Gareth Johnson tendered his resignation on the eve of the vote.

A key sticking point will be the deal's so-called "backstop" provision: a plan to keep open the border between Ireland (a member of the EU) and Northern Ireland, which is part of Britain.

But if, as seems more likely, May soldiers on, then the next step is relatively clear: "The Parliament has given Prime Minister May three [working] days to come back with a Plan B", NPR's Frank Langfitt explained. If unable to do so, an early general election would be triggered. Realistically, she'll have to at least invite him to talk, though his office said on Tuesday evening that there was no future for anything based on May's deal.

European Union officials immediately said that plans to cope with a disorderly, no-deal departure on March 29, rife with the prospect of chaos on roads, airports and administration would be sped up.

"This government has failed our country", the Labour leader said.

More than 100 Tory MPs were expected to oppose the deal, meaning a losing margin of around 200 was.

"Uncertainty is not good for business. we must therefore continue to prepare for the worst-case scenario, which is what a no-deal Brexit would represent", BMW Group said.

"Can't she understand? Yesterday the house rejected her deal". But for Germany the stakes are also high.

EU Council President Donald Tusk said the only positive solution after the British parliament decisively rejected May's Brexit agreement is for Britain to stay in the EU.

May's defeat on Tuesday leaves serious questions in Conservative ranks about whether she's capable of the kind of political deal-making necessary to get a deal through.

"The EU doesn't negotiate with Parliament", he says, "they negotiate with the government".
