Britain’s Parliament Seizes Brexit Agenda, but Impasse Unlikely to End

Britain’s beleaguered Theresa May gathered her ministers Tuesday for yet another emergency Cabinet meeting as the House of Commons upended centuries of constitutional practice and seized control of parliamentary business from the government in a bid to end the long-running Brexit impasse.

A series of “indicative votes” planned for Wednesday in the House of Commons, however, may fail to find a solution and plunge Britain deeper into political chaos, according to analysts.

Some lawmakers worry the votes to try to find consensus among MPs on what type of deal they want with the European Union may end up revealing there is no workable consensus.

That would would delay Britain’s exit from the European Union, which is now set for either April 12 or May 22, for possibly a year or longer.
