UK Parliament defies Theresa May, backs vote on Brexit alternatives

UK lawmakers voted 329 to 302 late Monday to give themselves the right to hold votes on alternative options to Prime Minister Theresa May's Brexit deal.
Parliament will hold non-binding votes on Wednesday that aim to determine the support for options that include:
  • Revoking Brexit;
  • holding another referendum;
  • supporting the [Withdrawal Agreement];
  • supporting a "Norway Plus" deal [?!], which would keep the UK in the EU Single Market

A House divided: The idea of indicative votes was pushed by a cross-party group of lawmakers, with Oliver Letwin of May's Conservative Party leading the way. The government had attempted to "whip" its MPs against the idea, but more than 30 Tories rebelled.

Diversity is the key to economic and political evolution.
