No tariffs for Irish goods entering NI in no-deal Brexit

The Brexit Chaos Just Got Even Worse After A Key Vote Failed In Parliament

Lawmakers will now vote at 1900 GMT on Wednesday on whether Britain should quit the world's biggest trading bloc without a deal, a scenario that business leaders warn would bring chaos to markets and supply chains, and other critics say could cause shortages of food and medicines.

What next for Theresa May, the beleaguered British prime minister whose Brexit deal was again crushed by parliament on Tuesday evening?

This is a breaking news story and will be updated.

The European Union said the risk of a damaging no-deal Brexit has "increased significantly" but there would be no more negotiations with London on the divorce terms.

Tariffs will not be applied to goods entering Northern Ireland from the Republic in the event of a no-deal Brexit. Do they want to revoke Article 50 entirely?

"May is now in a deep crisis, with Tory MPs and even some ministers speculating how long she can last in Downing Street", Mujtaba Rahman, managing director at Eurasia Group, said. Today we have secured legal changes. Labour saw success in the 2017 snap election by having a Schrodinger's Brexit policy - appearing more europhile than the Conservatives while officially supporting leaving the EU.

Following the talks in Strasbourg with Jean-Claude Juncker, May said she had obtained "legally binding" assurances that any backstop would remain temporary until a suitable UK/EU trade deal could be negotiated. We have the withdrawal agreement.

Lawmakers defeated May's deal by a whopping 230 votes in January, but May hoped the changes she secured from the bloc would be enough to persuade many to change their minds. Jeffrey Donaldson, DUP chief whip in Westminster, said that the decision hinged on the advice of Geoffrey Cox, the United Kingdom attorney- general, who told MPs that changes had "reduced the risk" that the United Kingdom could be trapped indefinitely in the backstop, but did not... "Now is the time to come together, to back this improved Brexit deal, and to deliver on the instruction of the British people".

European Council President Donald Tusk washed his hands on the situation, as his spokesman told journalists that the EU had "done all that is possible to reach an agreement". But prominent Brexit supporters, whose support May needs, were unconvinced.

The pound against the United States dollar (GBPUSD=X) fell to under $1.31 following May's failure to win over MPs with a series of last-minute changes agreed with the European Union.

Opposition to May's deal among members of the Conservative Party derives from a belief that it does not offer the clean break from the European Union that many voted for.

May said after meeting Juncker: "The attorney general will set out in legal analysis the meaning of the joint instrument and unilateral declaration to Parliament". "The government's strategy is now in tatters".

German EU affairs minister Michael Roth, called it "a far-reaching compromise". "There is no alternative".

They're already not happy after negotiating a deal with Mrs May twice.

"In politics, sometimes you get a second chance". It is what you do with this second chance that counts.

"If this deal is not passed, then Brexit could be lost", May said.

From "House of fools" to "Brexit delay mayhem", Wednesday's front pages make from reading for both the PM and politicians as a whole.

Some British lawmakers had warned their Brexit-backing colleagues that rejecting the deal could lead to Britain's departure being postponed indefinitely, because a delay would give momentum to opponents of Brexit.
