• On a March 29 deadline fast approaching and unconstitutional in Britain on a deal, Parliament voted around 5 p.m. Thursday on whether to push back the scheduled date of departure from the European Union.
• Law builders twice rejected the proposed Prime Minister Theresa May's proposed recovery agreement with additional margins. They succeeded him more on Wednesday by passing a measure contrary to any attempt to leave without an agreement.
• May has power but is seriously compromised. Many Conservatives backed up on anti-no-motion motion, against his will, and many members of his cabinet were denied voting against it, leading to speculation that he had lost control of his party and the process.
Britain is trying to buy some time
After months of firing and grandstanding, threats and political backstabbing, Paralyzed the Parliament, meaning lawmakers are likely to try to stop the clock before the March 29 deadline. Parliament returns on Thursday for a third consecutive day of Brexit voting, and it is widely assumed that lawmakers will support a proposal to seek delays.
But if voting for a delay prohibits the deadline, it also creates new problems.  First, any delay requires approval from other 27 member states of the European Union. And the big question is what kind of delays will be provided, and what it will do.
Many experts say that the European Union is likely to provide an extension, although how long it is uncertain. Some Brexit supporters fear that extending the deadline too far in the future may mean that the departure will never happen. But a short delay will bring your own problems.
Elections for the European Parliament are scheduled to start on May 23, so if the deadline is postponed beyond that date, Britain will have to request European lawmakers, remove it from the block. Sad.
Furthermore, more than two years ago for Mrs.'s government. He has to negotiate with Brussels. If most of what appears to be for a new exit deal, such a proposal needs to be settled in Brussels, and no one thinks that a new deal may take place in late May, assuming that Brussels will still play the ball.
And a more fundamental The issue remains: British lawmakers say that they violate the unreasonable departure, a prospect that they say may be causing economic catastrophe, chaos in seaports and lack of food and medicine. But unless they actually vote for a deal, that's still what's scheduled to happen.
Can legislators control?
Four amendments will be voting after Thursday's debate, including one that can effectively control the Brexit process from Prime Minister Theresa May, allowing Parliament to consider alternatives to his plan, and another calling for the time being to hold a second referendum.
One watch was proposed by Hilary Benn, an opposition of Labor and former lawmakers, with support from their senior Conservatives. Legislators are urged to keep the next Wednesday to handle a series of votes sequentially in various plans, including more close bonds, to determine which of them is the best opportunity to attract a majority parliamentary.
the so-called votes show the day before scheduling to attend Mrs. There was a summit of leaders of the European Union, and – if the lawmakers asked him – requested the postponement of Brexit.
There is another amendment calling for Brexit the process is extended to allow time for Parliament to find a plurality for a variety of strategies, but it is more likely to pass because it is officially proposed by the Labor Party opposition.
Also the halo is a change from Sarah Wollaston, an independent lawmaker, who calls for an extension to seek time for a second referendum, although it is not expected to order a majority.
And another amendment from a labor legislator Chris Bryant, who should not be allowed Mrs. There is to restore his dealings with the House of Commons.
Intends to abolish Mrs.'s plans. There is to go back to his Unpopular plan in Parliament for the third time next week, before Potential gets the chance to consider alternatives.
The choice of amendments is the work of the speaker, John Bercow, who subdues Brexit's hard-liners by refusing to schedule a voting on an amendment intended to exclude the possibility of a second referendum.  European leaders indicate readiness for long delays
The delay in Brexit may only take place with the consent of the European Union, and in previous days the opinion on its leaders seems to be hardened. Many see the small room for further negotiations; it seems only a general election or a second Brexit referendum would justify letting Britain postpone its departure by more than a few months.
It was apparently moving on Thursday when Donald Tusk, the president of the European Council, said, "Open to a long extension" of membership in Britain.
Comments will give weight to Mrs. With pro-Brexit politicians: Unless they return their deal to a third vote next week, they face a long delay in Brexit, whose opinion may move towards a more maintaining deal close relationship with the block, or even another referendum.
Simon Coveney, Irish foreign minister said that even the 21-month extension was a possibility, bringing Britain's departure date by the end of 2020.
May be fighting to stay in charge
Prime Minister Theresa May have insisted that the possibility of a no-deal Brexit should remain an option, arguing that to remove it from his dealings A rsenal will deny his action in dealing with the European Union.
However, when the Parliament assembled on Wednesday, he supported the movement required by lawmakers to defend the European Union on March 29 unless there was a deal in the area.
Parliament went one step and voted against the non-dealing blockage under any circumstances, at any time – a sharp rebuke against Mrs. May.
This is not the first time that members of Mrs Something Own
On Tuesday, lawmakers were rejected, 391 votes to 242, the deal said by Mrs. There are European Union officials, including the last minute changes sought to encourage those who are qualified, pro-Brexit who are concerned that Britain may be subject to certain blank economic policies uncertainly.
It speaks of Mrs. There was a small lver lining at a loss of 149 votes: This was less than the first vote in the deal, in January, lost to 230 votes, a marvelous margin in a 650 Parliament.
British governments are rarely lost in significant parliamentary votes, but Mrs. There are some collapse related to Brexit – and a stream of cabinet resignations – which usually spell at the end of the prime minister's tenure.
But whispers of a strategy proved to be true
Back in February, a television journalist sitting at a hotel bar in Brussels heard the British Brexit business leader, Olly Robbins, talking to colleagues. The publisher took her described as an "extraordinary" entry, which flies before the public promises of Prime Minister Theresa May.
The plan, said Mr. Robbins, was for the government in March to show unstable supporters of Brexit with an unpleasant choice: vote for re-treatment by Mrs. May, or endeavor a significant delay in the process.
Well, it's gone right now, and Mrs. May be done exactly as Mr. Predicts Robbins. For all the chaos and shame of the past two days, pro-Brexit builders have felt a new pressure to accept the deal that they have twice denied.
Trump talks of potential trade
The prospects of a trade deal between Britain and United The states after Brexit lasted for two years.
Before President Trump took office, he said that an agreement could be reached by "very fast." But in an interview published during his visit to Britain in July, he declared Prime Minister Theresa May that the proposals were very desirable in the European Union, and in November he warned that his plan would mean Britain "can not buy us."
On Thursday, Mr. Trump is a more helpful note on Twitter.
He may push against water in Parliament, however.
Mr. Trump is allied to some of the most enthusiastic advocates of a non-dealing Brexit, as Nigel Farage. And supporters of Brexit have set up a trade deal in the United States as one of the rewards of a comprehensive break in the European Union. Decisions of lawmakers in recent days have made this kind of poor Brexit – and this kind of deal with trading – less likely not.
A potential surprise is hidden in the rule of Parliament
Among the curve balls thrown at the House of Commons on Wednesday is the assertion that spokesman, John Bercow, has the right to stop the government from on withdrawal of the withdrawal agreement, rejected twice by major majority, for a third vote.
The legal basis for this proposal lies deeply in the book of the rule of Parliament, the work of a stability of the 19th-century clerk named Erskine May. On page 397, the rule states that moves or amendments "both, in substance, as a question decided in a session can not be brought back during the same session."
In the confusion of the constitutional nerdiness that followed, it emerged that the most recent clerk of the House of Commons had thrown by cold water on this idea in October. "That rule is not designed to prevent the House's will," said the clerk, Sir David Natzler. In other words, Mr. Bercow – a consistent champion of rights backbenchers – is almost obscure to a third vote if lawmakers really want the opportunity to vote here. "literally building a rule, if House wants to fail," says Jack Simson Caird, a former scholar of the House of Commons who is a senior research fellow at the Bingham Center for the Rule of Law.
The question was the subject of many debates on Thursday morning, with most commentators concluding that Mr Bercow – who opposed Brexit to the referendum, and proved his willingness to frustrate Mrs May's agenda – could not have been likely this is the particular hand grenade to him.
We say, in a different constitutional period, with Parliament seeking a way to play as a countdown to Brexit reaching its final stage. "Really nonsense," said Mr. Caird. "The system really does not cope with its demands."
