There may be a fourth attempt to convince lawmakers to support their deal, but this time against a softer version of Brexit to force a positive decision in one way or another. But with the numbers now deadlocked and little evidence of May defeating in a matter of days, the only way out – and one that the prime minister is actively considering – could be a new British general election  Two years ago, the normally cautious prime minister opposed the type by demanding a speed-call three years earlier than necessary. She wanted to secure a bigger mandate for her own Brexit vision – and eventually dropped her conservative majority.
Any parliamentary defeat in their deal since it was signed with Brussels four months ago and the continuing stalemate in the House of Commons stem from this fateful decision to hold a poll and the outcome of Parliament.
Another would be a high risk and against the instincts of May. However, this does not mean that this is not very likely. According to bookmaker Betfair, a Brexit election is a quota-on-bet.
Addressing the House On Friday after defeat with 344 votes against 286, the Prime Minister hinted that another election could be at stake when she said, "I'm afraid we're pushing the limits of this process this house. "
The opposition Labor Party under its leader Jeremy Corbyn has been calling for months for a vote, largely because they may be the biggest beneficiaries of the poll.
In contrast, many conservative legislators are afraid of losing more seats than in 201
An election would complicate May's planned resignation as prime minister, which she announced last Wednesday as part of a bid to win more votes from her own deputies. Would she, for example, fight the election as a Tory leader and then resign if she had lost, triggering a contest to become her successor?
Conversely, a small part of her – in conversation with her closest allies – has the slightest possibility that she could fight for and win an election in order to finally gain the mandate she has been longing for for two years? A conservative leadership competition has already begun, with several candidates pushing for media coverage. This competition would have to be postponed.
There is of course the danger – for Britain and British politics – that an election of 2019 would solve nothing if one ends up again without a clear winner and the prospect further blocked parliamentary votes. However, there is an argument that a national survey would not only be the only way out of the current impasse, but also in the best interests of the country.
For that reason, Brexit played a key role in the 2017 elections. The campaign and the way Britain left Britain were still abstract. The political parties have not debated the details of a Brexit deal, as this deal was not yet on the table. As such, voters voted on much broader issues and the credibility of each party and its future prime minister.
This indeterminacy has led to a democratic deficit today: politicians have taken great liberties with both the outcome of the referendum in 2016 (which was relatively close to 52% to 48%) and the 2017 elections, and both for their own To interpret purposes – the British public wanted a certain form of Brexit.
If there were elections now, any party leader and his manifestos would have to be clear what the Brexit would mean if they won. Could it be an optimized version of May's deal, or a mild Brexit involving a customs union or ongoing access to the single market to the EU? Would they promise a second referendum on the final negotiation – or what is called a second vote?
A new election would give the public a judgment on what kind of Brexit they wanted.
Even another result of the unhindered parliament would provide more clarity, depending on which party had the most seats. Since the June 2016 vote, British politicians have been guessing for almost three years what voters have in their heads. There is evidence of opinion polls, an online petition to revoke the Brexit process, which now stands at nearly six million signatures, and competing human demonstrations for a second referendum and the continuation of Brexit.
But nobody knows for sure. An election would allow voters to pass their verdict and give a mandate for a hard or soft Brexit, a deal, no deal, or no Brexit at all, and allow Britain to move in the direction of that People decided.
