If no-deal is rejected, MPs will vote on Thursday on delaying Brexit by extending Article 50 - the legal mechanism that takes the United Kingdom out of the EU.

But although she managed to convince about 40 Tory MPs to change their mind, it was not almost enough to overturn the historic 230 vote defeat she suffered on the same deal in January.

Labour MP Wes Streeting pressed Sir Keir to clarify if a proposal from colleagues Peter Kyle and Phil Wilson to back Mrs May's deal with the condition that it is then put to a confirmatory public vote is "wholeheartedly supported by the Labour leadership".

Numerous EU leaders expressed their dismay after MPs voted by 391 to 242 votes to reject Mrs May's deal.

"The prime minister's deal has failed, she no longer has the ability to lead", he said.

"The prime minister has run down the clock and the clock has been run out on her", the 69-year-old leader said in the House of Commons.

Yu also mentioned a 1000-euro foldable phone a year or two from now, a 100- or 200-inch device display using glasses. He added that Huawei's customers love Android and Windows and it will always remain its first choices.

Mrs Newton said she "resigned from the Government so that I could vote for a motion that honours my commitment to my constituents, to leave the European Union with "a deal".

Another 18 Labour MPs voted against the amendment, highlighting the divisions in the Labour party.

But Jeremy Corbyn said the PM's plan had been "decisively rejected" and she needed to change course. "That's why MPs must reject this deal today", the politician noted.

Tory former Brexit minister Steve Baker said he was "very confident" there won't be a general election.

Some of them believe it's time now to go hell-for-leather to leave without an overarching deal but move to make as much preparation as possible, and fast.

Malaysia Rejects to Free Doan Thi Huong in Kim Jong Nam Killing
During his meeting with Mahathir, Moon appreciated Kuala Lumpur's support for the peace process on the Korean Peninsula. A day later, Minister of Justice Le Thanh Long sent a letter to Attorney General of Malaysia Tommy Thomas.

In response, May said only that there would be "hard choices" for MPs, both on the vote over no deal, and if that is ruled out, a vote on Thursday over whether to extend article 50.

'The Government is in real problems because they are trying to fool the people into somehow believing that somehow or other the deal she has offered is the only one that is available'.

The plan, known as the Malthouse compromise, is backed by Brexiteer members of the European Research Group of Tory MPs, as well as the DUP and former Remain ministers like Nicky Morgan and Damian Green.

The EU's chief negotiator, Michel Barnier, has said the current impasse "can only be solved in the UK" and MPs must decide what they want rather than what they don't.

"If you're in the Government, then you vote the Government's position".
