To avoid a walkout by Cabinet ministers who oppose a no-deal Brexit, Mrs May initially gave Tories a free vote on the Government motion.

"Ultimately, I do not believe that the United Kingdom will be able to find an agreeable solution to Brexit within a "short time" - we will need a minimum extension of a year.

"Her eleventh-hour dash to Strasbourg looked like a desperate ploy to pull the wool over everyone's eyes". It makes us a rule taker, not a rule maker.

"I've always said that is not a viable option and in 2017 I was re-elected on a manifesto that clearly stated that I wouldn't support leaving without a deal". But what a mess.

Speaking after the defeat, she said MPs would have to decide whether they want to delay Brexit, hold another referendum, or whether they "want to leave with a deal but not this deal".
