NBC News reports:
Britain’s Parliament still can’t agree on how to move forward on Brexit. Four nonbinding measures that would have outlined a potential way forward on exiting the European Union all failed to gain a majority Monday.
The options Parliament considered Monday included two proposals that aimed to retain close economic ties between Britain and the European Union. One would have kept the U.K. in a customs union for goods with the E.U. after Brexit, while another called for Britain to stay in the bloc’s single market for both goods and services.
Another option wanted any Brexit deal to be submitted to a public referendum, and the fourth said Britain should cancel its departure from the E.U. if it comes within two days of crashing out of the bloc without an agreement.
Here is the extraordinary moment Nick Boles resigns the Conservative whip in the Commons: “I have failed chiefly because my party refuses to compromise. I regret, therefore, to announce that I can no longer sit for this party.” pic.twitter.com/SONYoJbkrk
