Politicians in Westminster are seeking to take control of Brexit if MPs vote down Theresa May’s deal, as Remoaners seek to stop a clean World Trade, No Deal Brexit.
That’s despite the fact that Survation found a clean, No Deal Brexit is backed by more Brits than Theresa May’s deal.
The government were once again defeatedin Parliament, this time 321 – 299.
The BBC’s Laura Kuenssberg revealed how some MPs are plotting to now push the UK towards a Norway-style deal, meaning open borders.
Pretty clear that group around the @stephenkinnock and @NickBoles 's idea for Norway type option are ready to pounce as soon as PM's plan rejected – Grieve amendment gives them a mechanism if it's passed, that vote could also be extremely tight https://t.co/FsNHEJ32KW

As ITV’s Robert Peston had earlier set out how: “Another huge vote is due tonight – this time on making sure MPs can say what kind of Brexit or no Brexit they want in the event that May’s loses vote on her Brexit.”
Grieve's amendment has been formally called by Speaker. So another huge vote is due tonight – this time on making sure MPs can say what kind of Brexit or no Brexit they want in the event that May's loses vote on her Brexit

Former Brexit Minister Steve Baker had earlier claimed that the amendment is not legally binding on the Prime Minister.
Grieve's Amendment D if passed allows for an amendable motion 21 days after a Government defeat of their dreadful deal
Whatever the outcome of the amendment, it is not legally binding on the PM.
Acts are law, motions are motions. The executive still decides how to proceed. pic.twitter.com/OfnnRjz7Id
