United Kingdom government wins key Brexit parliamentary battle

She could be heard being cheered from outside the room in parliament where lawmakers from both sides of the debate, including some of her ministers, gathered on the eve of the votes.

Government sources signalled to the Press Association that ministers were set to back the move.

In a concession, the government promised that lawmakers would have a say on what to do next if there is no agreement with the European Union, or if Parliament rejects the deal offered. Other flashpoints in the parliamentary votes include proposals to keep Britain tightly aligned with the E.U.'s economy.

The government was putting a combative spin on the concessions Tuesday evening: "The Brexit Secretary has set out three tests that any new amendment has to meet - not undermining the negotiations, not changing the constitutional role of Parliament and Government in negotiating worldwide treaties, and respecting the referendum result", a spokesperson for the Brexit department said in a statement. The Daily Express thundered: "Ignore the will of the people at your peril".

"The time has come for our elected representatives to decide - are you or are you not the servants of the people?"

Britain's highest-selling tabloid, The Sun, which is owned by Rupert Murdoch, addressed lawmakers directly on its front page, saying they faced a choice between "Great Britain or Great Betrayal".

Despite many Conservative MPs who backed Remain in the referendum, just two rebelled against the government on a meaningful vote.

But the latest manoeuvre by a minority government that has been forced to compromise with parliament anxious some lawmakers who feared it would hand the European Union an incentive to withhold any agreement on an exit deal to force a "softer" Brexit.

"A vote between bad and worse is not a meaningful vote". The slow progress is in part because the premier can't get her cabinet to agree on the kind of post-Brexit trade regime they want the U.K.to have with the EU.

She told BBC Radio 4's World At One that "at least half a dozen" junior ministers had been "very uncomfortable for some time" at the Government's direction on Brexit. Her party and her top team of ministers also are deeply split over how to leave the European Union, particularly over the future customs arrangements which have pitted those wanting closer ties with the European Union against others who demand a clean break.

Another key vote is on keeping the United Kingdom in European Economic Area, but the proposal has little chance of making it through as Labour is likely to tell its MPs to abstain on the vote.
