good evening. hello, i'm ros atkins, this is outside source. parliament has voted welcome back to westminster. to request a delay to brexit. another historic night in the house welcome to bbc news. the ayes to the right, 412. of commons, and tonight, i'm christian fraser live at westminster. the government will be pleased, the headlines at 8pm. as theresa may wins a significant the noes to the left, 202. victory in her bid to continue to push her dealfor leaving the eu. mps have approved a government motion on delaying brexit. we will be bringing you plenty it's a victory for the prime of reaction to the results of tonight's votes. but — this is not minister, who will hold and there is plenty to talk about. their decision alone. another vote on her deal. the european union must agree to a delay. if you arejustjoining us, and before it gets to that, there are now two options left— a quick reminder that mp's have next week mps will vote again tonight approved the governments one is to vote for the deal, on theresa may's withdrawal deal. get it through and leave motion to delay brexit, this is the leader in an orderly way and beyond the 29 march. of the opposition. the second is a long delay. but the last few days have also put a responsibility on the motion was backed by 412 mps, the prime minister. but the last few days have also first, to publicly accept put a responsibility on the prime minister. with 202 voting against the motion. that both her deal first, to publicly accept and no deal are simply no that her deal and no deal are no a reminder of what was on the motion longer viable options. papers. longer viable options. the motion set out two scenarios, either a short extension until 30 june to give the house time to approve the negotiated withdrawal mps narrowly rejected an amendment agreement and get all the necessary proposed by labour mp hilary benn, legislation through. which would have given parliament in the absence of an agreement control of the brexit process. on the prime minister's deal, the likelihood of a much longer and by a large margin, extension, with the prospect the commons voted not to hold of the uk taking part
8:01 pm
a second referendum on the uk's in the european elections in may. membership of the european union. that would be quite something, wouldn't it? i'm ben brown. this was the moment the speaker announced the result. in other news today... order! almost half a century on from the bloody sunday killings — the families of the victims are told the ayes to the right: 412. one former paratrooper the noes to the left: 202. is to face charges of murder — but 16 others will not be tried. the only thing we can do is keep doing what we are doing it, and i do thank you. not know legally within the law but we can do but we will persevere. the ayes to the right: 412. the noes to the left: 202. new figures show the number of criminals caught with knives so the ayes have it, or dangerous weapons has the ayes have it. unlock. hit a ten—year high. if there were european elections, what the ball in the box! there would be a lot tipping towards and chelsea thrash dynamo kiev ukip. what preparations are there to move into the europa league making?
8:02 pm
quarter—finals with i'm joined by the ukip an 8—0 aggregate win. leader gerard batten. that would be quite a thing after the referendum if we were involved in european elections, the government says that is a good evening. possibility. are you gearing up for another historic night in the house of commons, and tonight, that? we don't want that, because the government will be pleased, that? we don't want that, because that effectively means we haven't as theresa may wins a significant left the eu. so we don't want them, victory in her bid to continue but it is my duty to prepare for it, to push her dealfor leaving the eu. which is what i've been doing for we will be bringing you plenty of reaction to the results some weeks. we've already recruited of tonight's votes. and there is plenty to talk about. candidates, raised money. so if if you arejustjoining us, there is an election, we will fight a quick reminder that mp's have tonight approved the governments motion to delay brexit, beyond the 29th march. all out that if you want to leave the eu, you vote ukip because we are the eu, you vote ukip because we are the only party that stands for that. the motion was backed by 413 mps — with 202 voting against the motion. we stand for and unconditional withdrawal on our terms, not the the motion set out two scenarios, eu's terms. the reason the either a short extension untiljune referendum happened in the first place was that it was the best way 30th to give the house time to approve the negotiated withdrawal to not make the best way to agreement and get all the necessary reintroduce that threat is a legislation through. or in the absence of an agreement european election. lots of ukip me on the prime minister's deal, peas i would have in platform to
8:03 pm
the likelihood of a much longer argue for and exit from the eu. extension, with the prospect of the uk taking part there is a good chance ukip will in the european elections in may. pick upa this was the moment the speaker there is a good chance ukip will pick up a number of votes. but it is announced the result. difficult to plan for that because there's no pulling in the european order! elections. it doesn't matter, it's a bit different. how many are you putting forward? a full complement of 73 candidates in 12 regions. london has eight candidates, other the ayes to the right, 412. the noes to the left, 202. regions have six. there are 650 thank you. the ayes to the right, 412. candidates, you have to find the money to fight that which is what the noes to the left, 202. we're doing now. and it is a lot so the ayes have it, easier to fight than a general the ayes have it. unlock. election. it is on proportional representation, and that message has got through to the electorate now over the years, that you get what you vote for in the european speak is to usually get these election. you get the candidates returned in the proportion that you numbers right, but it was 413. vote them. are you preparing for a
8:04 pm
legal battle, as well? we don't know labour leaderjeremy corbyn was first on his feet, what mechanism of the eu would come following the voting. mr speaker, after the last few days up what mechanism of the eu would come up with, they may say that we will of government chaos and defeats, send some mps from westminster to all of us have the responsibility to work together to find a solution to the crisis facing this country where the government has brussels in your place. what have so dramatically failed to do so. you been told? the middle vote we have begun to hold meetings posits me, because they rejected a with members across the house. to find a consensus and a compromise that meets the needs of this country. referendum. the middle vote says that if parliament votes for theresa but the last few days have also put a responsibility on the prime minister. may's deal next week, we leave on 29 first, to publicly accept that march. but then they are asking for both her deal and no deal are simply an extension into 30 june. why would no longer viable options. that be? that doesn't make sense because... you need to get the and secondly, to bring forward the necessary legislation to amend legislation through. the withdrawal the exit date of 29 march. act already says... but you have to put into law. we could've left the tonight, i reiterate our conviction eu because as i've been arguing all that a deal can be agreed based on our alternative plan that can these years, all the eu legislation has been passed into acts of command support across the house. parliament so it all stays in place,
8:05 pm
and i also... so there would not be a problem that affects the eu. it would be a matter and i also reiterate our support for a public vote of changing that legislation however it needs to be changed. what worries not as a political... me about the second vote is that there is something more here. the not... government wants to delay until 30 mr speaker, not as political point june, which would mean the current scoring but as a realistic option mps come to the end of their term in to break the deadlock. the end ofjuly. but i'm wondering if they plan to put something else the snp's iain blackford accused out of the hat at the end ofjune the labour party of hypocrisy. and say they need to another extension article 50 also put in the can't i seek your advice as to how meantime we haven't taken part in we can make sure that this house has european elections, it is too late. the ability to defeat the trade bell just a quick one, at the last election, you had 24 meps. it has over the course of the coming days, and presents the opportunity to been a rocky road for ukip since the begin use legislation to make sure election, you now have seven meps. that no dell can happen and? that has that responsible position that you don't talk to nigel faraj, but we should take. this is out of the he is saying he will be lobbying for hypocrisy from the labour party and one of the countries to veto the that the people's built on the extension next week. what are you agenda. let's make the house seven meps doing? nigel made the decision he would leave ukip, now
8:06 pm
secretary said that tonight it outlined what they will not go for saying he'sjoining this decision he would leave ukip, now saying he's joining this other brexit party that doesn't seem to going forward. exist except as a register name, there's nothing behind it. i think the truth is there are fewer i'm talking about lobbying the heads and fewer options and one of state of other european companies of the problem so far has been that there have been is quite frankly a pr stunt to get lots of different options them in front of the tv cameras. i on the table but not a majority for any of them. the house has increasingly made clear what it does not support, don't think that they will listen to a second referendum. last night despite my vote me or my meps. their decision will in the other way, the house made it clear that leaving be based on if the uk leaving, there without a deal is unacceptable. that narrows down the options and there are two left — isa be based on if the uk leaving, there is a whole much of money to be paid one is to vote for the deal, and they don't want to pay it. i can get it through and leave in an orderly way. the second is a long delay. see why they would be sympathetic to us leaving, but in the short term they won't want to pick up that i think that would be a disaster. shortfall in the budget, so they are unlikely to vote against an i am emphatically against that because it wouldn't solve anything extension of article 50. it only ta kes and what is clearly in the national extension of article 50. it only takes one of them to dissent because it it needs to be a unanimous interest is to vote for the deal and to implement the deal and then decision. i hope someone like the get on with all the other things italians or the spanish would say we want to do to make this country no, let's get of the uk, there are more trouble than they're worth and
8:07 pm
a great place to live. do us more trouble than they're worth and dousa more trouble than they're worth and do us a big favour. i wouldn't put money on it. thank you very much for talking to us. the health secretary, matt hancock, there. our chief political correspondent vicki young is here. from straz bag and the legal issues, let's look at some the defeat of the boat, last night, international reaction now — in a moment we're talking to our europe correspondent in brussels but first — and no deal being taking up the president trump weighed in today on those negoatiations table tonight, in the course of the between brussels and london — and he said he was surprised week, we have come a long way on at how they'd gone. brexit actually. we have had months i'm surprised at how badly it's and months when i think seem to gone, from the standpoint of a happen at all, but we are getting negotiation. but i gave the prime toys that deadline, things are minister my ideas on how to speeding upa toys that deadline, things are speeding up a bit. tonight, has been negotiate it, and i think you added and they would have helped up would've been successful. she didn't listen to that, and that's fine, she about the idea that they would win has to do what she has to do. but i all of those votes, and has not been think it could have been negotiated ina wrestled from them by mps as they think it could have been negotiated in a different manner, frankly. i hate to see everything being ripped ta ke apart right now. i don't think wrestled from them by mps as they take control of the process. in the end, theresa may has been pushing to another vote would be possible because it would be very unfair to something that she did not want to the people that one. so that would do. she has been defeated again, and she is going to be asking for brexit be tough. but it did happen, and
8:08 pm
to be delayed. having set so many times that we are leaving the 29th both sides are very, very — they're of march, at the moment, it does not cemented in. it's a tough situation, look like it will be happening, she has that really difficult task to it's frankly ashamed. there was no reason for that to happen, they persuade her own mps to come over to could've had the vote and it should her. there are lots of signs that many of them well if she decides to have gone smoothly. unfortunately it bring this back next week and try didn't. it's a very complicated again. whether it is going to be issue. actually the issue on the enough, this is the thing about border of ireland is one of the most parliament, it does not take many. complex points. donald trump saying we know some that i completely against the deal. someone resigned he would stay in his lane, but he had plenty of thoughts on the brakes of it that brexit policy, he has and negotiation, plenty of thoughts he expressed alongside may chequers decided to back it. the alternative all time ago. is going to be a long delay and let's talk to damian grammaticas in brussels to get the reaction from the eu to all of this. com plete is going to be a long delay and complete uncertainty, and we do not when they watched that, there were know where the whole process will end. demand that is going to need to d eftly when they watched that, there were deftly moments that were difficult begin spying by the end of the week for leo because they talk about the is the chief whip. it is like trade deal with europe and how they would hit europe with stronger herding cats at the moment. last tactics unless the eu started night was so dreadful. the reports about the cabinet meeting before about the cabinet meeting before about apparently he did not know playing ball. there is so much on
8:09 pm
what would happen. it is the eu's played at the moment. there complicated. quite often, that is not a motion at the end, but he is is, and he was sitting there in an awkward position with donald trump that people the lead of knowing all of that. he is the one to get next to him, criticising europe's eve ryo ne of that. he is the one to get everyone to vote the right way. the trade policies, next to a european ramifications of all of that blue on leader. he said nothing, so you have all these tensions swirling in the blue, conservative against background. remember, what is conservative but that, the fact that interesting in this context is that you have the united states as a key the ministers what a to defy orders player in the whole northern irish and keep theirjobs and keep that peace process, and the guarantee or high salaries is really infuriating others in the party, and all that —— guarantor of that process. the us has a clear interest, politically bad blood is not going to help with the dell next week, if you are going speaking, in looking at the status to try to govern at the end of this, quo in northern ireland that has it is going to be incredibly tough. existed. so we can be sure that he he had the cherry on the cake this was talking about brexit to donald trump. and also trade issues. but i evening, the secretary standing up to wrap up the debate but the government, both by the government think it all goes to show that from motion, and he goes to the lobby and votes against it. this is that think this site here in the eu, they are
8:10 pm
with three boats, the rules for looking at this, brexit is one reasons it is a free for all and issue. they are now faced with a they can do, when you can do what difficult question, which is that the uk government will now ask for you like, it just they can do, when you can do what you like, itjust does not make sense. how can he beat a person is an extension. the eu has many issues what we are going to do, —— 0k he on its plate. it would really like brexit to organise this orderly withdrawal, to get this sorted out beat the price and saying this is and racked up. the question now is what we going to do but that a how long to extend for? how long to let this process go on from the eu's better look at the exchange. there we re better look at the exchange. there were a lot of cabinet ministers who position to reach a satisfactory conclusion on the brexit issues? voted against the latent brexit because they do not want it, but it with that in mind and the battles makes me think that you would be they have to fight, do you think happy but that no deal? strange that when push comes to shove next times. we had someone in the last week in the european union summit, they will say look, it really is hour, but it politically astute to better to kick this a long way down the road so that you don't have to have a vote by the second referendum worry about it in the interim?” that was clearly not the majority in the house and it was before it's think they will face a tricky time? summons not the time we should decision, but the first thing that be voting on it, he said no, we are will determine that is what happens fixing based on brexit, this is the in the coming days, and theresa may
8:11 pm
time to stand up for what you believe in. yes, at that point will will now bring her deal back again to parliament in london to try to believe in. yes, at that point will be when isjeremy corbyn going to think that time is right to fully get it through. if she succeeds, back id at the pictures when they then the options are very different. it isa then the options are very different. it is a short extension to try to we re back id at the pictures when they were voting on the referendum, there was some sitting on their hands get it all implemented in the next because they were told to stay. that few weeks, a couple of months. if will be used at the patch on the she fails to get that deal through party because party members who at the third time of asking, then i desperately want another referendum will not like the look of that but think a very difficult question — that they cannot fight that tonight, the eu will look at what happened but they could have shown that they today and in the last couple of we re but they could have shown that they were doing it. jeremy corbyn is days, and c against the background relu cta nt to were doing it. jeremy corbyn is reluctant to go down this road, but ofa days, and c against the background of a deal that's taken a year and a that was another interesting angle to this. the conservative party, they are just as bad as the labour half to negotiate, is deeply complex and covers many areas, they sealed party, and planning on him to say that with theresa may, she's failed when you are going to turn to that moment when you fully get behind to get it through and is now in a another referendum. the numbers are position where she sees cabinet not there in the house of commons. members rebelling, parties voting in they are not there. people say we do different ways. the policies that she's been pursuing, saying that she not know what is down the road, and to add three weeks times, we could would not see an extension make out updates. —— move out at it.
8:12 pm
overturned, nash... from the eu's point of view, this all signals chaos going on in westminster. what the eu sees that it needs is a let's talk to damian grammaticas in brussels to get the reaction from the eu to all of this. sta ble the eu sees that it needs is a stable majority in the uk for a deal that will endure. that tends to lead to the idea that may be able year an extension have been searching for some time now. that was simply no longer, the uk stays in, donald tusk way back on that this was going to be resolved in any legislation would was floating this idea today that the uk could rethink its approach to be resolved in any legislation would be passed in time. they had been brexit. but that comes with risks getting up at that. now, it is absolutely clear, as you have been for the eu side. so the eu leaders hearing, theresa may has that she is gathering here exactly a week today, not going to be doing that. it was going to beat the uk meeting at the thursday of next week, will face this choice, and some difficult 29th of march. you, the price things to balance for them. reaction that we have had coming fascinating summit. thank you very from a spokesperson for the european commission setting out very simply much. that said an extension requires the our political correspondent unanimous agreement at the other 27 ben wright is here. member states that a very simple and watching trump's performance there, clear reminder that whatever is going on in london, what have mps
8:13 pm
you think that he is looking past have been cited, this all still theresa may and doesn't really care about their relationship? yeah, she relies on a negotiating partner on thought she had a friend there. she will probably take that with a bit the side, the eu, whose 27 countries ofa will probably take that with a bit of a shrug, maybe get used to donald must unanimously agree to let the uk trump shooting from the hip here. but it is a sentiment echoed widely 110w must unanimously agree to let the uk now seeks exams of an extension, any in the house of commons and on her one of those eu countries that seek own side. george freeman, we had to block it. that seems unlikely, but what it tells you is that the eu backbenchers saying that theresa may has to go at the earliest will be in a position to demand or opportunity. and there is a feeling now in the tory party that she make some real demand and that negotiation about an extension. they cannot be the person to lead them through phase two. if they are do not want a chaotic exit, but it resolved and that way and the rumours are that ——cabinet—— feels that way, as well, they can't do a will now ask questions. that the reaction we have had immediately from germany's minister, he said, vote of no—confidence, how do they get rid of her? she is safe until extension, what's boy? has sacked december, 12 months on from when the previous challenge happened. but if cabinet no longer supports the prime minister and they don't want her to
8:14 pm
brexit. that's that you what to do be at the helm, then power erodes with that. like —— from under the prime minister very quickly and they would need to be quite clear she can't carry on. they wa nted quite clear she can't carry on. they wanted to get through this and get it done. but is there not a flip brexit. that's that you what to do with that. like -- he seems to be saying that the uk needs to take a side where she gets that withdrawal agreement through and it is spring breather and find that consisted of a longer period of time. he said not again, and everyone says that was an extraordinary effort? may be, that is the great reset moment, flowers quite that. he said that the uk blossoming across westminster. the nightmare lifts, that could happen. thought that would be a way he reach a consistent on a way for it, that she may feel rebooted and ready to he might be inclined to encourage tackle a domestic agenda that she talked about when she first became the 27 member states, the other prime minister a long time ago. but member states of the eu to look there is a domestic agenda she would favourably to look at a log like to pursue. to be honest, i think it feels that she has burned extension. buy—back, we think he means at least a year, possibly by through an awful lot of political capital now, and she looks exhausted. her mission is to get irish foreign minister was suggesting that it could be 21 britain out of the eu with a deal. months. so to the end of next year come at the end of 20/20, because it perhaps she will make, very soon
8:15 pm
can get the uk time, i think the after that has been done, if it is idea is time to sit down and have, completed, then it is time to move on. no votes tomorrow... what will start a bus back to the beginning they do? i don't know. we press the and had a real debate about what that uk sort of approach they would pause button and look i to wa nt to that uk sort of approach they would want to think that brexit and come back to the negotiations and have meaningful vote three, another vote time to do all of that because on on theresa may paws make deal. what do you think happens here over the next 3—4 days? the eu side view, the real problem at the heart of this is absolutely do you think happens here over the next 3-4 days? not much here, a lot no clarity in london, no clear way, happens on the phones and whatsapp groups. the pressure that will now no clarity in london, no clear way, no clear support in parliament for a be coming their way, although 75 wait for it. that political problem tory mps who voted against the deal at the high today is that difficulty. if you think back to the this week, it will be absolutely beginning in the early negotiations, enormous. the prime minister now has all the talk of the uk site but that got useful political climactic conditions. we are all now talking it would lead up to this point in about an inevitable extension, three the patient would be on the eu but months or up to two years on. that caved on uk finance. you side was is meant to frighten some of her brexiteers into thinking very hard sent a look at this estate they had about once again voting down a brexit they may not like, but it could be the best in terms of the held very firm, pressure is on the
8:16 pm
distance that comes from the eu in uk side, and they say they will yea rs distance that comes from the eu in years to come. and they are going to be hoping that mines will turn over the next four days. number ten have continue to stand firm in their not given up hope of turning those demands. there will be internal numbers around, and i thought it was demands. there will be internal demand of how month extension will be for the offer if uk. they must interesting today that eileen foster sounded perceptive to the idea that think that every family to that changes could be made and brought position. we will wait to see how the politics plays out. just a round. there are certainly erg members on the record today who said under no circumstances will the back reminder that the summit is thursday this. a few more labour mps might and friday next week. theresa may will be daft about confirmation that just think we need to get a deal we will have many felt boats, over the line. the pressure is off another vote on theresa may's deal. them a bit, now that were talking you are watching bbc news. about an inevitable extension, and perhaps a slight softening of the exit that they will be happy with. let's get some political reaction on tonight's events. i'm joined by dawn foster so it is impossible to know how the from the guardian, and george parker numbers will go, but that is where from the financial times. it will be. by the time of the eu council next thursday, she has a what do you make up what you had deal, it is possible. thank you very seen today? that the chaos of much, ben. wednesday night, fussed about so after today's votes, theresa may has months and boats in all eyes turn to next week when mps the house of commons. that is a dead will be asked to change their minds and back theresa may's deal.
8:17 pm
night. —— good night. abstaining, and there'll be that crucial summit of european leaders that could determine the length of an extension to delay brexit. our deputy political editor john pienaar has been looking at how the next stages may play out. extraordinary scenes in another concession, and other extraordinary scenes in retreat by theresa may. mps have delayed extraordinary circumstances. her brexit past 29 march. strategy of easing that the latent they don't know for how brexit as a weapon against tech long, and neither do we. critics in the conservative research mrs may never wanted this, but she's been weakened by defeat groups in the uk seat the shaft. you after defeat in the commons. now with less than a week to go before the next eu summit, her mission — can see the critics wanting a dell somehow to win around 75 or more tory brexiteers, by next week. let out a little bit democratic unionists, leave—supporting labour mps who want a brexit deal. it is a big ask, so theresa may will be calling another big debate, about labour, tonight, that was another big vote before she faces eu about labour, tonight, that was about on pratt creating time on a leaders and asks for second referendum, and you see a lot the delay in leaving. sojust days, time is running out of labour and peace sitting on their hands even though it labour policy to finally support this battered prime minister, to pursue a second referenda. they or start to thrash out a new brexit plan. had to make a decision to push so aside from mrs may's plan, strength for people vote or got off what are the other options
8:18 pm
mps will try to drum up the cliff edge and that is what they decided to do but that the people support for behind—the—scenes? some on both sides, including vote campaign came out and that is cabinet ministers like amber rudd, what they decided to do but that the people vote campaign cannot accept would like a brexit closer this is not the type that we need, to the eu, a bit like norway's. so this is not the type that we need, sol this is not the type that we need, so i think that it is a decision on sticking with eu market rules what to focus on. that we would fall and standards, it may be also the eu customs system. out on the 29th of march with no dell, to push people towards backing no new trade tariffs or border cardell, that clearly was not going checks, no problem avoiding stops to break. she was not going to and checks on the irish border. but it also means no new trade commit 75 mp5 by next week. selig is deals around the world. my breathing room. it could mean mps jeremy corbyn and labour want a customs union. he says he can negotiate terms to his liking. say we still do not like a deal, we then, there's another referendum. mps were never likely to back are still never going to back it, a referendum this evening, maybe we should move to a second but the so—called people's vote campaigners will be back. referendum. meanwhile, from here, we what will the eu make of it all? had jeffrey cox the attorney general under enormous pressure to go away in brussels next week, and have a look at the legal advice eu leaders must decide that he gave on theresa may's deal whether to grant a brexit delay at all. earlier in the week. is that going signs are they will, but there may be strings attached. will france impose conditions? to convince the democratic union in will spain, where elections are on the way, reopen the sovereignty of gibraltar? northern ireland back benches of and crucially, will they insist theresa may could make because any
8:19 pm
on a long delay, a year or more, until the brits agree on brexit? tonight, the prime minister's last, prospect of the deal in the week, best hope is that all her defeats, all her concessions will pave the way to a deal. and now and not by any element into but fear of a long delay, the advice. the government framed the possibility of being tied to eu rules, fear even referendum will persuade or scare mps into backing her deal that if we can reduce the risk at an is the best available. a cce pta ble that if we can reduce the risk at an acceptable level, insulted that way, some legal guidance from the attorney general i think but had landed better. as a that the uk just might be able to legally break with the eu rules. result, they are scribing around if britain feels trapped, that might some of the arcana rate in the legal help rebels climb down, too. if she wins, it could be a triumph. britain could begin the even rod —— wild, it is a political tougher task of discussing the future after brexit, even if many tory mps decision and what they need is some and ministers are saying quietly, kind of legal comfort no matter how "that'll be a job for a new prime feeble it is to get an excuse to minister". mrs may's time may climb down. do you get that sense have all but run out. that the constitutional integrity, and she is desperate for a way out let's get some more political
8:20 pm
of this, but equally bare adamant reaction on tonight's events. that this field is not given i'm joined by owen bennett thousand assurances? they said over from city am and harriet line from the press association. and overagain thousand assurances? they said over and over again that the backstop is u na cce pta ble and over again that the backstop is unacceptable to them. jeffrey cox came out and said that the backstop nice to see you both. we talked an has not changed, and he is rooting awful lot about conservatives around for this kind of minor detail tonight. i was saying earlier, there that may be in that at the is this image of it labour mps of standing on quite a crucial vote for agreement. dup said it is fine, some their members. creating some time in their members. creating some time in the agenda for a people's vote. i of them malays themselves, turn around and say it will change, it understand why they say now is not makes them look as if they have completely turned around and change the time to vote for that amendment, but what will the members think of their mind. they are under a lot of it? they'll be confused. looking pressure because the masked constituency of businesspeople in down at these labour mps... there the north are actually unionist, was the opportunity and they didn't they are actually dup both bowties. at the same time, they can set ta ke was the opportunity and they didn't take it. i think a lot of labour party members will think this is an around a state we will not vote opportunity, but every opportunity, unless they change the backstop. she has not change the backstop was. you should be voting for what you believe and to build some steam. for jeremy corbyn at the end to say that we still back the people by the mic vote, it was left in the commons. it was a strange parliamentary moment.
