The UK House of Commons has rejected all eight potential scenarios aimed at finding a way forward on Brexit.

The majority of the votes were heavily defeated.

Two of the votes came close to passing. These were the proposal for a customs union and the proposal for a "confirmatory vote.”

The Customs union motion was defeated by 273 votes to 264.

The motion calling for the UK People to be offered a “confirmatory vote” on the Brexit Withdrawal Agreement was defeated by 295 votes to 268.

It comes after the UK Prime Minister Theresa May told Conservative MPs that she will quit if the Brexit Withdrawal Agreement is passed by the House of Commons.

Elsewhere, leading Tory Brexiteers Jacob Rees-Mogg, Boris Johnson and William Hague yesterday indicated that their opposition to the deal may be softening- and Mrs May’s offer could convince more to follow suit.

However, this evening, the DUP confirmed that it will not support the agreement when it comes to a third vote.

In a statement, the party said the changes it had sought to the backstop have not been secured.
