Government wins Brexit bill vote after concessions

He has also urged Conservative pro-Remain MPs to "change the course of Brexit" and vote accordingly on a series of upcoming crunch votes in the lower house of parliament.

A Tory Remain rebel has warned Theresa May that "if she f**ks us, she's f**ked, ' after Conservative MPs were given assurances by the prime minister that a compromise Brexit amendment to the 'meaningful vote" will be upheld.

Soubry reminded the House of Commons of the 48% who were being ignored by the government.

It included a demand for the government to seek the approval of the House of Commons for its subsequent approach should no Brexit deal be agreed by the end of November; while it also called on the government to cede control of the Brexit process to MPs if there is no UK-EU withdrawal agreement by 15 February 2019.

Tory Remainers and Labour's shadow Brexit secretary Sir Keir Starmer, debating the Brexit bill for a second day in the Commons, said the inclusion of the Northern Ireland amendment meant the only option was to now "reproduce the customs union and the single market".

But government officials admitted that the concession does constrain their freedom in the Brexit talks.

However, a fluctuating group of between six and 15 Conservative MPs including Dominic Grieve have frustrated the government's efforts to withdraw the United Kingdom from the institutions that make up the European Union.

Those demanding a compromise from the government on Mr Grieve's amendment sent a warning to Mrs May as they immediately challenged Downing Street's position on clause c. But for now, the government seems to have prevented an embarrassing defeat, and the Tory rebels have avoided the unpleasantness of colluding in the defeat of their Prime Minister.

"The prime minister conceded she understood points A and B of the Dominic Grieve amendment and there will be further discussions on C, with a view on bringing the amendment in the House of Lords, so that will be discussed further", she said. He said: "Facing the prospect of a humiliating defeat, Theresa May has been forced to enter negotiations with her backbenchers and offer a so-called concession". Grieve, a Remainer, endeavored to give parliament a meaningful say should a "no deal" Brexit become a prospect, reports The Guardian. "It would be total, abject surrender against the Brexiteers and what the country voted for".

"If she has given too much away I think there will be real anger towards her". The prime minister still has time to come up with a form of words acceptable to both sides, but the expectations of the anti-Brexit rebels have been raised significantly.
