The Daily Telegraph’s front page seems to suggest the PM was left “powerless” after the vote in the Commons.
The newspaper criticises May over the EU withdrawal will not be happening this Friday, they said it is a “monumental failure of the political process.”
The Daily Telegraph reflects over the confusion as to how Brexit could unfold, they wrote, “We may be leaving without a deal on May 21; more likely we will be staying in for longer.
“Possibly, we will not be leaving at all. We just don’t know because the Government has lost control of matters.”

While the Daily Mail’s front page warns MPs seize control over the Brexit agenda, the paper describes the possibility of a general election as an “equally unappealing alternative.”
Adding, “For the Brexiteers, the ship is finally sailing.
“If they don’t get on board, they risk losing the deal, the Government and their country. It could not be more imperative that they come to their senses.”
The Mail further writes that May’s deal “cannot be abandoned” as it is the “only exit door.”
