Brexit: DUP's Gavin Robinson fears 'disaster' of long delay

Warwick and Leamington MP will vote against

The Prime Minister apparently breaking her word by attempting to Article 50 - she will require the EU's agreement to do so - will leave many wondering whether they can trust her other promises; for example her vow to stand aside as party leader before the next general election, made in exchange for Tory MPs not backing her ouster in a recent vote of no confidence.

Weston-super-Mare MP John Penrose voted in favour of the extension while the Wells and North Somerset representatives both opted against it.

The "room document" says the European Council of leaders can't allow the EU is "paralysed by the consequences of an extension". She will need to convince Brexit supporters in her Conservative Party, as well as members of the Democratic Unionist Party (DUP), the small Northern Irish party that props up her minority government in Parliament, to back her deal ahead of next week's vote if a short delay is to be tabled.

"Certainly, the prospect of a further referendum would be persuasive for the European Union, but with 27 potential veto players, it can not be taken for granted". "Parliament chose to reject that deal and we now have to confront the hard position that decisions taken by parliament have left us in".

Mrs May has put forward two deals to Parliament, both of which have been rejected in an overwhelming majority.

May is expected to again submit the withdrawal deal to lawmakers next week, though it has already been rejected twice.

Britain Brexit
A pro European Union demonstrator releases flares as the march kicks off

On Thursday, MPs voted to ask European Union leaders to simply push Brexit back in a bid to head off a hugely disruptive end to their partnership.

Next week, the EU's leaders will meet at a summit to discuss the extension of Britain's membership after 29 March, as well as the terms and length of the delay.

Even if the deadline is unanimously agreed, the Prime Minister will still need to get a deal through the Houses of Commons, which is now divided on the matter of the Irish back-stop.

Downing Street sources denied that Mrs May had lost control of her Cabinet or her party, insisting that the results were a "natural consequence" of her decision to offer a free vote on an issue where many hold strong views.

Hope quoted Mrs May's official spokesman as saying "The PM has been clear on a number of occasions she has no intention of extending Article 50".

Amendment G, tabled by Conservative Christopher Chope, advocated a two-month delay to Brexit "for the specific objective of replacing the United Kingdom negotiating team".
