British Prime Minister Theresa May leaves Number 10 Downing Street for Prime Minister's Questions in Parliament

After two years of failing to get anything significant regarding Brexit through parliament, the government of Prime Minister Theresa May launched a last desperate plea on Thursday.

The prime minister is seeking MPs' backing for her approach to renegotiating her withdrawal agreement with the European Union after the House of Commons emphatically rejected it last month.

They are so unhappy that many are threatening to abstain or vote down the motion, meaning the Prime Minister could suffer yet another Commons defeat over Brexit.

"Essentially that is what will happen unless we don't vote for a deal".

He told The House magazine: "I read that [former UKIP leader] Nigel Farage is setting up a new party called "Brexit" and, if I were them, I'd be looking at that - that seems to reflect their views more than the Conservative Party does".

To the anger of the opposition parties, Mrs May was not in the chamber to hear the result declared.

Afterwards, Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn told MPs: 'There is no majority for the prime minister's course of action on Brexit - yet again her government has been defeated. "She can not keep on just running down the clock and hoping that something will turn up that will save her day or save her face".

It's a freakish rumor, and we won't believe until Tatum says it himself. "There's all sorts of chemistry problems". The league referred the Pelicans to rules put in place in 2017 that restrict teams from resting healthy players.

Thursday's vote was meant to be pretty straightforward. He said: "People in the United Kingdom want certainty".

The motion called on MPs to reiterate support for the approach set out in an earlier set of votes on 29 January.

The government is asking MPs to re-endorse the Prime Minister's plan to go back to Brussels and secure changes to the controversial Northern Ireland backstop (the backstop is the insurance plan in the Withdrawal Agreement to prevent a hard border returning between Northern Ireland and Ireland).

The Liberal Democrats' Tom Brake asked: "In what way can we as members of Parliament, who have already voted to rule out no deal, can ensure that the government listen to that and respond appropriately?"

Adding to the prime minister's difficulties, Europhile Conservative MPs criticised Brexit secretary Steve Barclay after he said that the United Kingdom could leave the European Union without a deal on March 29 despite parliament having voted against such a possibility.

"The motion on 29 January remains the only one the House of Commons has passed expressing what it does want - and that is legally-binding changes to address concerns about the backstop".
