UK parliament fails to find majority for any softer Brexit option

Britain’s exit from the European Union remained deadlocked after parliament failed to agree on any alternative to Prime Minister Theresa May’s divorce deal.After a tumultuous week in which May’s divorce strategy was rejected by lawmakers for a third time, despite her offer to quit if it passed, the future direction of Brexit remains mired in confusion.In a bid to break the impasse, lawmakers on Monday voted on four alternative Brexit options, but all four options were defeated.

The option that came closest to getting a majority was a proposal to keep Britain in a customs union with the EU. That option was defeated by just three votes.A proposal for a confirmatory referendum on any deal got the most votes, but was defeated 292-280.
