Following a groundbreaking vote, Wednesday's parliamentary timetable was put into the hands of the legislature, after May repeatedly failed to pass its deal, the odds that Britain's EU plunges into chaos. MEPs now intend to add a second debate day on Monday.
A petition published by the Labor MP, Hilary Benn, one of the deputies charged with taking control of the Brexit process, revealed that the legislature will simultaneously vote on a menu options on Wednesday evening local time.

"But we can not commit to whatever they want to vote for because they could vote for something that He added that it was completely impractical.
Before the polls, May will meet with the influential 1922 Conservative backers' committee, leading to speculation that they will set a timetable for their resignation.
But Alistair Burt, who has resigned as Minister of Foreign Affairs to protest Monday against the government To vote for Theresa May, CNN said she should not resign, even though she twice failed her withdrawal agreement.
