United Kingdom must offer 'clear' Brexit response ahead of European Union summit

Merkel ally floats idea of broader talks with UK if Brexit delayed UK Parliament votes to delay Brexit but rejects second referendum

The UK Parliament will hold a number of important votes on the future of the Brexit process in the next few days, which will determine the nature of the future UK-EU relationship.

Seven cabinet ministers - Ms Truss, Brexit Secretary Stephen Barclay, International Trade Secretary Liam Fox, International Development Secretary Penny Mordaunt, Commons leader Andrea Leadsom, Transport Secretary Chris Grayling and Defense Secretary Gavin Williamson - voted against the government motion.

In the pouring rain in Sunderland, northeast England, which was the first place in Britain to declare a vote to leave the EU, Farage, wearing a flat cap and carrying an umbrella, said Brexit was now in danger of being scuttled by the establishment.

PRIME Minister Theresa May's deputy warned lawmakers on Friday that unless they approved her Brexit divorce deal after two crushing defeats, Britain's exit from the European Union could face a long delay.

She has warned that extending the departure date beyond three months could harm trust in democracy - and mean that the United Kingdom would have to take part in May's European Parliament elections.

"Although a no-deal exit was voted down, we can not predict what will happen because it depends on how negotiations with the European Union will go, We will have to watch developments closely", Aso said.

Downing Street sources denied that Mrs May had lost control of her Cabinet or her party, insisting that the results were a "natural consequence" of her decision to offer a free vote on an issue where many hold strong views. However this will require unanimous agreement from the 27 leaders, which is not guaranteed as the EU's chief negotiator and several leaders, including French President Emmanuel Macron, have said there would need to be a good reason given.

Following yesterday's vote by the British parliament, UK Prime Minister Theresa May will ask for an extension.

"I think people just want to get on out of the European Union and start building for our future", he said. She will need to convince Brexit supporters in her Conservative Party, as well as members of the Democratic Unionist Party (DUP), the small Northern Irish party that props up her minority government in Parliament, to back her deal ahead of next week's vote if a short delay is to be tabled. Options in the longer term might include agreeing to a softer kind of Brexit, holding a general election or a new referendum.

The amendment for a second Brexit referendum was rejected by 334 to 85 votes. But Mrs May's party is still severely split, with more than half voting against the delay. He said: "Today I reiterate my conviction that a deal can be agreed based on our alternative plan that can command support across the House".

May and her allies hope if the 10 DUP lawmakers can be persuaded to drop their opposition, many Brexiteer Conservatives will follow, giving her Brexit deal a fighting chance of winning Parliament's backing.

Why did MPs oppose the deal?
