Theresa May loses Commons vote on no deal Brexit spending

Theresa May (right) suffered another humiliating defeat at the hands of Tory Remain rebels tonight as they won a ‘shutdown’ vote and promised more revolt against no deal. Tories voted for an amendment to the Finance Bill tabled by Labour’s Yvette Cooper (inset) to tie the Treasury’s hands in a no deal Brexit. The Government lost 303-296 in the vote declared by John Bercow (left) at 6.55pm. And the rebels warned the PM the alliance with Labour will ‘sustain itself’ and promised ‘we will not allow a no deal exist to occur at the end of March’. Downing Street plated down the impact of the amendment, insisting it was ‘inconvenient’ but would not actually stop the Treasury collecting taxes. More dangerous for the Prime Minister is the successful alliance between pro-Remain MPs on her benches and the Opposition. Together they could cause chaos for the Government in the coming months on a series of issues.
