The first two votes - first last January and again on the 12th of March - were both voted down by the MPs by huge margins. But members of Mrs.

Prime Minister Theresa May's Brexit plans were thrown into further turmoil on Monday when the speaker of parliament ruled that she could not put her divorce deal to a new vote unless it was re-submitted in fundamentally different form.
