    Default Confirmatory referendum or customs union

    They were the only votes which came close.

    There's a breakdown of how MPs voted, by party, at the end of the article.

    • Customs union - For: 264 Against: 272
    • Labour's Brexit plan - For: 237 Against: 307
    • Common Market 2.0 - For: 188 Against: 283
    • Revoking Article 50 to avoid no deal - For: 184 Against: 293
    • No-deal exit on 12 April - For: 160 Against: 400
    • Malthouse Plan B - For: 139 Against: 422

    Close is irrelevant. There is no majority for anything, fact, end of story. Nothing to discuss here.

    There is but one option that parliament voted for when it set the original leaving date, and now the new leaving date, in place and that is No Deal. Its the only thing they have voted for a majority on.

    But hey voted for no deal when they set March 29th, and now April12th in place. Can you not see the hypocrisy. If we don't have a deal by 12th April we leave with no deal that is what our law currently states. they have just had an opportunity to change this when they changed the date, but they declined to do so. Why?

    No they didn’t. No Deal was and still is the default, but nobody has specifically voted for it.

    Because unicorns.

    Don’t fret about the results yesterday, it was “indicative”. The Government can choose to be sensible and work out how they can translate indicative options into a workable solution, or they can continue to bludgeon their way to either MV3 or No Deal.

    Who is fretting. All yesterday demonstrated was that our MPs are not fit for purpose. Hypocrites the lot of them.

    It was May who decided when to trigger A50, not MPs.

    It is however ridiculous that all the MPs who voted against No Deal yesterday or at other times did not vote for the only option that would change the legal default to revoking A50.

    So I guess, there will be another round of votes for the favourites, and maybe a consensus can appear. Marginally, customs union seems the most likely outcome.

    All MPs voted for submitting Article 50 to the EU.
