Brexit vote on May's Plan B: Everything you need to know

Theresa May is hoping to secure enough votes to back the Brady Amendment in order to seek alternative arrangements for the Irish backstop - which has been the number one sticking point in getting a Brexit deal so far - and bring the notion to Brussels that the only way that parliament will approve of the withdrawal agreement is that changes be made to the backstop.

Urging MPs to "give me the mandate I need" to return to Brussels and demand that the withdrawal agreement be re-negotiated, she said: "The time has come for words to be matched by deeds...if you want Brexit you have to vote for Brexit".

May said she knew there was a "limited appetite" in the European Union to re-open talks, but she believed she could "secure" it and return with "significant and legally binding change".

On a remarkable night in the House of Commons that potentially changed the course of Brexit, MPs also rejected a vote that would have forced Mrs May to delay Brexit to avoid crashing out with no deal. They do not want a so-called backstop provision that would keep Britain in a customs union with the EU in order to keep open the border between Northern Ireland and EU member Ireland.

If a subsequent piece of legislation is passed, it would give May until February 26 to get a deal approved by Parliament or face a vote on whether to ask the European Union to delay Britain's exit to avoid leaving without a deal on March 29.

Though Parliament is overwhelmingly opposed to May's deal, lawmakers are divided over what to do instead - whether to brace for a "no-deal" Brexit or to try and rule it out.

Remain-backing former Cabinet minister Nicky Morgan said discussions had been taking place for "some days" on the Malthouse plan between herself, health minister Stephen Hammond, and Solicitor General Robert Buckland on one side and Mr Rees-Mogg and Steve Baker from the ERG on the other.

British MPs look to break the Brexit deadlock by voting on amendments to Theresa May's deal.

Britain remaining in a customs union, or even the EU single market, could help reach a final agreement, Weyand said, adding: "We need decisions on the United Kingdom side on the direction of travel".

Senior Conservative lawmaker Graham Brady has put forward a proposal, known as an amendment, calling for the backstop to be removed and replaced with "alternative arrangements".

The British PM has opened a day of debates on competing proposals about what to do next following the rejection of her deal earlier this month.

If Theresa May backs the Steve Baker/Nicky Morgan Brexit plan C she probably wins the Brady amendment and defeats Cooper/Boles - but doing so would be based on what she believes to be a lie, since she is (probably rightly) convinced there is zero chance of European Union 27 leaders agreeing on the Morgan/Baker Brexit plan.

The pound fell against both the euro and the dollar tonight as MPs rejected Yvette Cooper's bid to delay Brexit and prevent a no-deal departure from the EU.

It could have given MPs fighting to block Brexit a legal route to do so.

This is aimed at neutralising the controversial "backstop" plan contained in the Withdrawal Agreement which prevents a hard border between Northern Ireland and the Republic. The amendment removes the contentious Irish backstop from the deal, setting May up for a clash with the EU.

"Whatever happens in the votes that follow it has now become inevitable that the government will have to extend Article 50 in any scenario", said Corbyn.

"But what we need is to achieve something legally binding - and that means part of the Withdrawal Agreement".

Ireland's European Affairs Minister, Helen McEntee, said British politicians needed to show "a bit of realism".
