paris. it was another slap in the face for theresa may last night. british mps rejected her brexit deal, despite assurances from the european union on the northern irish backstop. parliament is voting again on whether or not and wants to exit the eu without a deal. to philip, let's go live to westminster and listen to what theresa may has to say. many of us recognize the prime minister's efforts to secure a deal. given that we profitably trade with the majority of the world's gdp, has the time not come to remainhind this dominated westminster hurdle and
5:33 am
for all of us to recognize the default position of our votes to trigger article 50 is that no deal is better than a bad deal? we can order the referendum and leave the eu on the 29th of march. it may be tor may: the benefit of the house, people will recognize that i keep my answer shorter. i want to leave the european union with a good deal. a badl is better than deal, but i want everyone to leave with a good deal. mr. corbyn: i concur with the prime minister's remarks about the disaster of the air crash in ethiopia and the earlier crash in asia that affected the same aircraft. can i commend the civil aviation

authority for taking prompt action about the safety of the aircraft. we need to ensure all air passengers are safe. has been minister stubbornly declaring the only choice between her -- is between her deal and no deal. last night's vote finished off her deal. tonight, she is not showing leadership to with on no deal. whipped herek, she mps on ruling out no deal. how will she be voting tonight? -- standinger may: in my name. there may well be brexitotes and her strategy is in tatters. her deal has been twice rejected and is dead. she is not even asking her mps to support her on it tonight.

5:36 am
unprecedented majority. even this morning, the cbi said no deal would be a sledgehammer and went on to sayy there have been no consultation with business, adding this is no way to run a country. the reason her deal is dead is because at every step of the way, the prime minister has refused to listen to manufacturers, trade unions about the best way to protect jobs in this country, which is to agree on a customs union. manufacturing is in recession. many companies have laid off many workers. her deal has been decisively rejected. the will she listen to workers concerned about their jobs, the business is concerned exceptheir future, and
5:37 am
the case there has to be a negotiated customs union with the eu? prime minister may: when it comes to the cbi, they said the labor govevernment policies were -- standards. that is not good for people he claims to stand up and represent. he talks about proposals he put forward, it is another position he favors. last night, he did not refer to a second referendum. deals just spoken about a and customs union that has already been rejected and often rejected by him. mr. corbyn: it would be reckless to rule out any option at the time. i do not think her answer will , mamany oththers who are concerned about their future because of the dangers of

market. the prime minister has said you cannot reject no deal. you need to be for something. with her own deal decisively rejected, can we be informed by the prime minister, whahat is se now for? does she recognize the labor alternative, the five pillars we put forward is the crediblble sw in town available and ready to be negototiated. is it time she moved on from her red lines and faced the reality of the situation she has got hersrself, her party, this parliament, and this country into? prime minister may: you talk about wanting no deal, but votes in a way that brings no deal closer. the deal he is proposing has been rejected several times by this house.
5:40 am
have my own voice, but i understand the voice of the country. they want -- mr. bercow: the house must calm itself. isa big brexit vote happening tonight where mps will be deciding whether or not they vote for or against a no deal brexit. we will have philip on the set with me. we are looking towards this vote tonight. which way does it look like it will go? >> vote one yesterday was not in favor of theresa may. we had one hunter 49 votes -- we had 149 votes against her. not enough to get it through.
5:41 am
vote number two is taking place localtoday a at 7:00 p.m. time in london. that is whether or not to take the possibility of a no deal off the table. what does that mean? the 29th of march, mps have the right to say we would prefer to leave the eu with no deal or we prefer to leave with a deal. that is what the vote will be tonight. likely to win is this one because there seeeems o be an overall opinion in the house of commons that no deal would be a complete disaster for the united kingdom. if that is the case, there will be a third vote tomorrow on whether or not to extend article 50. article 50 is the two-year negotiating period before britain leaves the eu, which is due to come to an end on the 29th of march on midnight.
5:42 am
-- if the vote is passed in the house of commons to rejected no deal and they move forward tomorrow to vote on whether or not to extend article 50, there are two big questions that do not have answers. the first is how long is article 50 going to be extended for? three months, one year? there does not seem to be a united opinion on that. the second question is -- will the european union agreed to that extension? of the eu have to agree before britain is given --. brexit negotiator on says we still know what you do not want in the u.k.. we do not know exactly what you want. it could be the next week when there is the eu summit.
5:43 am
those leaders will not be forthcoming and according that delay to the u.k. the fater question is of theresa may. how has she been able to hang on this long? suffered they has worst, most humiliating defeat in british parliament terry hihistory -- parliamentarian history. more than even ramsey mcdonald. she got another defeat yesterday. is these areeason not normal political times. theresa may survived a no-confidence vote in her own party in december, so she is untouchable. she can remain in office for a year. there can be no challenge to her
