Parliament votes to extend Article 50

Parliament's backed an extension to Article 50 tonight. The Prime Minister must ask the EU to extend it and give Britain time to resolve the Brexit mess.

Best for Britain supporter and Labour MP, Rachael Maskell, said:

“We have achieved what we set out to do today - extend Article 50 to make good on parliament’s decision to rule out no-deal.

"We must now pull together to defeat the government’s deal next week, a deal devoid of credibility after two drubbings in parliament. The Prime Minister must now go back to the EU and negotiate the extension demanded by MPs from across the House.

"Now that we have averted disaster in the short term, colleagues across the House must work together in the coming days secure the winning majority needed to deliver the only credible solution to this mess - giving the people the final say."
