Mrs May's plan for the UK's departure has been rejected by MPs three times.

The House of Commons vote shortly before midnight Wednesday to block a no-deal divorce destroyed the dream of some of Prime Minister Theresa May's Conservative Party members for a clean break with the bloc as soon as next week.

Earlier, British MPs failed to reach a majority in an indicative vote on four alternative Brexit options selected by Speaker John Bercow from nine proposals put forward by the parliament.

May will convene a meeting of her Cabinet on Tuesday, likely to last five hours, to hash out a plan. "To be clear, during any long extension there will be no renegotiation of the Brexit withdrawal agreement, no, never", he said.

Negotiating teams for both sides were to meet again on Thursday for a full day of urgent discussions.

In a tweet, Juncker said: "If the United Kingdom is able to approve the withdrawal agreement with a viable majority by April 12, then the European Union should accept an extension until May 22".

"The Conservative Party has shown itself to be incapable of a compromise, so I will sit as an Independent Progressive Conservative", added Boles, who stressed that he could no longer sit for this party. It allows continued participation in the single market and a "comprehensive customs arrangement" with the European Union after Brexit - including a "UK say" on future European Union trade deals - would remain in place until the agreement of a wider trade deal which guarantees frictionless movement of goods and an open border in Ireland.

In Britain, political chaos continued to reign as the Cabinet held a marathon session to try to find a way out of the crisis.

"I think people will feel very short-changed", said former Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson, a prominent pro-Brexit voice in Parliament.

Hard-line Brexiters call for the complete recovery of Britain's sovereignty from the European Union, prioritizing Britain adopting its own trade policy after leaving the EU.

Bureau of Labor Statistics' employment figures outpaced the Dow Jones' estimate of 175,000 jobs added during the month. The six consecutive months of rising employment, that began in September, added around 300,000 jobs.

Amid all the uncertainty, analysts have said the economic impact in Britain could be massive.

SNP MP Joanna Cherry joins with Dominic Grieve and MPs from other parties with this plan to seek an extension to the Brexit process, and if this is not possible then Parliament will choose between either no-deal or revoking Article 50.

Edwin Morgan, interim director general of business group the Institute of Directors, said May's statement was "a welcome step towards compromise", though there remained obstacles ahead.

The prime minister's offer to Corbyn is another sign of the desperation and disarray that has overtaken her government as it struggles to complete Britain's acrimonious separation from the EU.

The Prime Minister, Theresa May, also lost for the third time on the withdrawal deal she had negotiated with the European Union. "It is the prime minister's responsibility to ensure we don't leave the country less safe".

May's deal aims to smooth the country's European Union exit by settling its financial affairs, guaranteeing the rights of expatriate citizens and setting up a transition period until 2022 at the latest in which new trading terms could be agreed upon by London and Brussels.
