Despite vote to reject a no-deal Brexit, Prime Minister Theresa May told the House of Commons that it remains the default option if no deal was reached.

"If she presses on with her own deal I think we still have to go on and look at other options and get a common objective".

Speaking after Theresa May was defeated again in a vote to rule out no-deal in any circumstances, Mr Corbyn said: 'Tonight this House has once again definitely ruled out no deal'.

He called for no deal to be taken off the table, and says the Labour Party's proposal is the suitable alternative.

The Prime Minister dashed to Strasbourg on Monday in a bid to secure legally-binding changes to the backstop, which was aimed at preventing a hard Irish border. "We are not going to have a new leader", he said.

Dame Caroline had attempted to withdraw her amendment, but it was moved by fellow signatory Yvette Cooper and won the support of a majority of MPs during a string of crunch Brexit votes on Wednesday evening.

To secure an extension to Article 50, Mrs May would need the support of the 27 other European Union states.

"I'm not in any sense a fan of her staying for any longer than necessary, but right now it is necessary that she continues to conduct these negotiations". But Tory MP Charlie Walker, a May loyalist, had warned before last night's vote that one would ensue "as sure as night follows day" if she lost again.

In a statement, the Commission said it had put forward proposals to try and reassure MPs the backstop "if used will apply temporarily".

But the tension soon faded away when James came running out to expose the whole prank to a very relieved David Beckham . David Beckham looked horrified when he was recently shown his brand new statue at LA Galaxy's stadium.

She was among those who voted to keep the scenario on the table tonight.

This means doing what the prime minister failed to do two years ago: "search for a consensus on the way forward".

But Mrs May said Mr Corbyn repeatedly votes in a way that "brings no-deal closer", before adding: "I may not have my own voice but I do understand the voice of the country".

Corbyn added: "She needs now to show leadership".

And if that is rejected too, they will have a chance to vote tomorrow on delaying Britain's departure from the European Union by extending Article 50.

The prime minister looks on course for another heavy defeat this evening after attorney general Geoffrey Cox concluded "the legal risk remains unchanged" of the United Kingdom being unable to leave the backstop without European Union agreement.

MPs who voted for: Sir Peter Bottomley (Worthing West), Ms Caulfield, Nus Ghani (Wealden), Nick Gibb (Bognor and Littlehampton), Nick Herbert (Arundel and South Downs), Gillian Keegan (Chichester), Stephen Lloyd (Eastbourne), Mr Loughton, Huw Merriman (Bexhill and Battle), Jeremy Quin (Horsham), Amber Rudd (Hastings and Rye), Sir Nicholas Soames (Mid Sussex).

"And that the deal we have negotiated is the best and indeed only deal available".
