Brexit vote: UK parliament rejects 'no-deal' option

With just over two weeks to go until the Brexit deadline, the British parliament has signalled that it is strongly against leaving the European Union without a deal.

After politicians rejected British Prime Minister Theresa May's plan to quit the EU for a second time on Tuesday, the government on Wednesday put forward a motion to rule out a "no-deal" Brexit on March 29, the current deadline.

MPs then backed an amendment to that motion, which rules out a no-deal Brexit under any circumstances. The motion as amended was passed by 321 votes to 278.

Wednesday's vote is not legally binding, however, and does not rule out a no-deal Brexit altogether.
