Parliament Votes To Reject Calls To Cancel Brexit
According to a report by Business Insider, the House of Commons has voted to reject calls to revoke Article 50 and cancel Brexit after over 5.8 million people signed a petition calling for Britain's exit from the EU to be reversed. Members of Parliament voted against a motion brought forward by the Scottish National Party to make revoking Article 50 the 'default' position if the Commons fails to ratify a deal. On Tuesday, May's government responded formally to reject the petition to revoke Article 50. A spokesperson for the Department for Exiting the European Union said in a statement, "Revoking Article 50, and thereby remaining in the European Union, would undermine both our democracy and the trust that millions of voters have placed in government." A spokesperson for Labour party leader Jeremy Corbyn said on Wednesday that "we don't support that outcome [of revoking Article 50]. We don't believe it's necessary."
