Britain could be heading towards a no deal brexit after UK lawmakers rejected four Brexit alternative Brexit following a round of parliamentary meetings. Members in the House of Commons voted against the options poised by Britain’s Prime Minister Theresa May on Monday.
The UK must come to an agreement by April 12 or else Britain risks leaving the European Union without a deal.
“This House has continuously rejected leaving without a deal just as it has rejected not leaving at all,” Brexit Secretary Stephen Barclay told lawmakers in the House of Commons following the voting period. “Therefore the only option is to find a way through which allows the U.K. to leave with a deal.”
May is set to hold future meetings to try and grant Britain an extension in the coming days.
May has previously said she would resign in an effort to ensure Brexit goes forward.
