No! No! No! No! No! No! No! No! Commons votes down EIGHT different Brexit proposals - including second referendum AND no deal - leaving EU exit plans mired in new level of chaos

MPs rejected every alternative Brexit voted on last night as Brexit descended into a new level of chaos.

MPs held a series of votes in the Commons on Brexit alternatives to Theresa May's deal just hours after Mrs May said she would quit once her Brexit deal is delivered - in an attempt to cajole rebel hardline Brexiteer MPs in her own party to support her.

But in a fresh blow to the Prime Minister's plans, the DUP indicated they were still unable to back the deal because it 'poses a threat to the integrity of the UK.'

It means MPs are no closer to agreeing on Brexit after they voted down all eight options in a series of 'indicative votes' designed to establish what kind of deal might secure a majority in Parliament.

On a dramatic night inside and outside the Commons, a second referendum narrowly won the most votes - losing 295 to 268. A permanent UK-EU customs union won almost as much support and had fewer votes against - defeating it 272 to 264.

No Deal was rejected by 400 to 160, while MPs voted 273 to 184 against cancelling Brexit altogether. A soft Brexit plan to join EFTA and the EEA lost 377 to 65, while a similar Norway-style plan lost 283 to 188. Jeremy Corbyn's plans lost 307 to 237.
