It's the day after another tense night of votes on the Brexit in the Commons.
And although we still do not know what will happen, at least we know what will happen on March 29th. We will not leave the EU.
Theresa May got the consent of the House of Commons to do something that she would not stop saying she would not do: delaying our departure from the European bloc.
And after the rest of the week, she almost made believe a victory.
Here's what you need to know this morning.
1. Brexit does not take place on March 29
The Brexit should officially be delayed for at least three months after MPs backed Theresa May's proposal to postpone the March 29 date.
MPs voted 413-202 for the motion, which the Prime Minister was forced to table after MPs rejected his agreement and uncompromising agreement this week.
The motion requires the UK to ask the EU for a deadline, whatever happens, but its duration depends on the fact that MEPs support the agreement on Brexit at any time. third vote next week.
If Mrs May manages to convince Tory Brexiteers and the DUP to finally support her, threatening a huge delay and proposing legal adjustments, she will then ask the EU for a deadline until June 30th. .
If she fails to agree by next Wednesday, she will meet 27 European leaders at a summit and Thursday and will ask for an extension of time.
2. MEPs overwhelmingly voted against a second referendum – for the moment
MEPs voted loudly tonight to reject a second referendum on the EU.
The result 334-85 came from an amendment to Theresa May's plan regarding Brexit by former Conservative MP Sarah Wollaston.
The independent group MP wanted to "instruct" the Prime Minister to delay Brexit long enough to "legislate and hold a public vote" on Brexit.
The ballot would ask people to choose between a form of Brexit to be determined by Parliament and to stay.
However, two second official referendum campaigns – People's Vote and Best For Britain – said it was not the right time or the right way to ask MPs.
And the Labor Party refused to support the amendment, instead asking the deputies to abstain. Workers are planning a second referendum as a possible option for the future, but it is unclear when and how it would support him.
Corbyn fired four Labor rebels who voted to block a second Brexit referendum.
In total, 25 Labor MPs defied the order and supported the amendment.
Eighteen other Labor MEPs voted against.
Shadow ministers Justin Madders, Yvonne Fovargue and Emma Lewell-Buck defied orders and voted against.
The trio was fired five hours later by Mr. Corbyn.
3. And the deputies will not be able to "regain control" – again, for the moment
A bold plan to wrest control of the Brexit process from Theresa May was defeated by only two votes.
The amendment tabled by the powerful coalition of the rest, composed of Hilary Benn, Yvette Cooper and Oliver Letwin, was defeated 314-312.
This would have paved the way for an "indicative" multi-choice vote by MEPs on the way forward in the coming weeks.
MPs would have had the opportunity next Wednesday to take over the future work of the House of Commons, provided that it is a proposal supported by at least 25 members from 5 parties.
To avoid defeat, the government had already proposed to table "indicative votes" itself – within two weeks of next week's EU summit.
It was not clear at what point this promise would be kept after the loss of the amendment.
After the vote was lost, Benn apparently turned to Cooper and said, "Oh well."
4. The significant vote 3 is going on – and this time it's personal
If at first – and second – you do not succeed, try, try, try again.
We expect a THIRD significant vote on the Brexit deal, which Theresa May failed several times on Tuesday or next Wednesday.
It will try to use the threat of a delay of several years and some slight legal changes to persuade the deputies of Brexiteer Tory and DUP to rally.
Wednesday is the deadline.
If the Prime Minister has reached an agreement by the end of the day, she will ask the EU for a short "technical" extension of Brexit Day until June 30th.
If the prime minister does not have an agreement at that time, she will ask for a potentially much longer extension at an EU summit on Thursday.
EU leader Donald Tusk said he was ready to grant an extension, but only if the UK clearly knows what he wants.
European leaders may choose to thwart or delay an extension decision while MPs decide what type of Brexit they really want.
This is where the "indicative votes" come in. The government has announced that it will hold votes to allow MPs to determine the way forward within two weeks of the summit next Thursday and Friday.
This means that MPs could vote on the way forward in late March or early April. Beyond that, we simply do not know.
5. And Geoffrey Cox took another look in his code
Attorney General Geoffrey Cox tried to convince legislators supporting Brexit of additional legal advice.
His initial opinion, published Tuesday, that the legal risk remained that the fact that Britain was not able to extricate itself from the background, helped convince the Brexiteers to oppose l & # 39; agreement.
But in additional tips apparently released in recent days, Cox said that Britain would be able to free itself from Irish support if it had a "socially destabilizing effect on Northern Ireland", which would be considered as a "fundamental change" of circumstances.
Cox stated that the Vienna Convention allowed the United Kingdom to break the safety net in case of "unforeseen and fundamental change of circumstances".
But hardcore Brexiteers have already rejected the advice.
"To say that they are" exceptional "does not make them as such in the eyes of international law," said ERG lawyers last night.
"Hungary no doubt thought that the collapse of Soviet tyranny and the liquidation of the other State Party with which Hungary had concluded the treaty in question was something exceptional." But that was not enough. not."
