Sadiq Khan DEMANDS Article 50 be revoked after May's latest defeat – 'Deal is DEAD!'

The Mayor of London and remain campaigner has insisted Mrs May’s “deal is now dead” after losing for a third time in Parliament, this time by a majority of 58 votes. Mr Khan wrote on Twitter: “Theresa May’s Brexit deal was a bad deal for jobs, our economy and for communities in London. Her deal is now dead. “The PM must now do the right thing – immediately revoke Article 50 and give theBritish public the final say on Brexit.”

MPs rejected Mrs May’s deal by 286 votes to 344 in the Chamber.

Following the announcement the Prime Minister stated the “implications of the House’s decision are grave” as the UK faces leaving the European Union on April 12 without a deal.

Mrs May told Parliament: “I think it should be a matter of profound regret to every member of this House that once again we have been unable to support leaving the European Union in an orderly fashion.

“The implications of the House’s decision are grave.

“The legal default now is that the United Kingdom is due to leave the European Union on 12 April – in just 14 days’ time.

“This is not enough time to agree, legislate for and ratify a deal, and yet the House has been clear it will not permit leaving without a deal.

“And so we will have to agree an alternative way forward.”
