March 29, 2019 was defined as a milestone in the history of the country, while at the same time being marked by politicians and voters supporting Brexit and mourning those who wanted to stay in the EU.
Lush parties were organized to mark what some called Britain's "Independence Day".
Now, thanks to Teresa May's failure to get Parliament to support the Brexit agreement, today it has been a little more chaotic than planned.
The only thing that is clear is that Brexit does not happen on Friday – and may not even come next month or in May, but after a year.
Inaction and Delay On Friday, Brexit's supporters plan to mark this one-time remarkable day with demonstrations outside the Parliament as a protest that their reward for now has not avoided them.
Under the terms of the extension approved by Brussels last week and approved by parliament on Wednesday, Britain's departure will not happen until April 12 if there is no agreement and May 22, if any.
However, depending on what is happening today in the House of Commons, it is likely that the delay will last up to one year if there is no interruption in the impasse.
If this threat had to focus the minds and persuade more legislators to back the Prime Minister's agreement for Brexit, they have not worked so far.
Without the support of the Democratic Trade Union Party (DPP) or the opposition Labor Party, May simply can not reach its agreement. Instead, the government broke the deal in two parts in the hope of getting more support.
MEPs will vote on the withdrawal agreement, which will allow the technical process of leaving the bloc, while the second half, the political declaration setting the framework for the next steps, will be submitted to parliament at a later date.
This maneuver announced by ministers yesterday has two goals: first, to overcome a block imposed by City Council chairman John Berkow in order to try to get MEPs to vote for the deal for the third time. – after two previous parliamentary losses; and second, make support for the deal more acceptable to critics.
If the vote on the withdrawal agreement is passed on Friday, Brexit will be extended until May 22, when the UK leaves the EU with a deal. If it fails, the deadline of April 12 rises – and no agreement has been reached on that day.
However, since the end of last night, both DUP and Labor have been strongly opposed to voting on the withdrawal agreement in its current form. Labor leader Jeremy Corbin said the offer of his party's support would be similar to that of Brexit for blindfolded eyes because he would not be able to influence the nature of Britain's future relationship with the EU.
Why continue voting?
It seems that the Prime Minister's last attempt to surrender Brexit may turn. The question is why May can continue voting? Well, without a vote today, the April 12 agenda will be introduced at any moment – and the UK will prepare to leave the EU without a deal in two weeks, unless another option appears.
This alternative option can still take place – regardless of the outcome of today's vote – if and when lawmakers have a second round of indicative votes on Monday, which may signal potential support for Brexit's soft plan.
This will still have to be accepted by the government and approved by Brussels – two very high bars.
First of all, today's vote on the withdrawal agreement, the prime minister tells EU leaders that he is trying all the means needed to make Brexit a deal.
If, as expected, today's vote fails, then the UK is about to leave the EU on 12 April.
With the exception of growing speculation that the EU can offer the May government an opportunity to take over or leave or collapse without a deal on April 12th. or accepting a longer delay of up to one year.
The one-year delay would mean that the UK will take part in the European elections on May 23rd, as well as the Brexiteers' anger. together, continue to support the government in today's vote?
Given that nothing worked earlier to break the British Parliament, do not rely on it.
Yesterday, EU Chief Negotiator Michel Barnier told diplomats that Brexit is no longer "the most credible outcome" – and it's easy to see why.
