It has been rumoured that the prime minister is considering putting her deal to Parliament for the fourth time, despite time after time it has been rejected.

Theresa May’s deal was defeated for the third time on Friday by 344 votes to 286, a narrow margin of 58.

The PM has promised Parliament she will stand down from the top seat if her deal went through, however among some Brexiteers reality is setting in that the delays may well risk the entire Brexit outcome.

Theresa May addressed the House of Commons on Friday and said it was a “matter of profound regret that once again this house been unable to support leaving European Union in an orderly way.”

As a result, the UK will now leave the EU on 12 April, May said this does not allow enough time to ratify or agree a deal. She further said that House “made it clear it will not leave without a deal.”

As result this mean the UK will now have to hold EU Parliamentary Elections.

May added, “On Monday, this House will continue the process to see if there is a stable majority for a particular alternative version of our future relationship with the EU.”

“Mr Speaker, I fear we are reaching the limits of this process in this House.

“This House has rejected no deal. It has rejected no Brexit. On Wednesday it rejected all the variations of the deal on the table. And today it has rejected approving the withdrawal agreement alone and continuing a process on the future.

“This government will continue to press the case for the orderly Brexit that the result of the referendum demands.”
