UK MPs vote to take control of Brexit process through 'indicative votes'

UK lawmakers have decided to take the Brexit process out of PM Theresa May’s hands, voting to accept an amendment that would break the ongoing parliamentary deadlock by changing the rules.

Parliament backed the amendment, by 329 to 302, to allow time for “indicative votes” on the finer points of the beleaguered Brexit deal. The measure was proposed by Oliver Letwin, a member of Theresa May’s Conservative party, and must be passed before it takes effect.

On Monday, May gave up mid-way through her third attempt to push a Brexit deal through, leaving the UK staring down the barrel of a no-deal Brexit, a situation Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has called a “national embarrassment.” In a last-ditch effort to force consensus, May has reportedly even offered to resign if the pro-Brexit contingent will just back her plan.
