UPDATE 29th MARCH BREAKING NEWS

MPs have rejected Theresa May’s EU deal for the third time.

The vote was lost by 344 votes to 286. This means the UK will not be able to leave with a deal in the next few months. This might mean a much longer delay to Brexit. Protests have taken place as thousands of 'leave' supporters gathered outside Parliament to show how unhappy they are.


_________________________________________________________________________________________________

There have been lots more developments this week regarding Brexit.

Theresa May held 8 indicative votes for MPs yesterday ('indicative' means they indicate what people think). The votes were one 8 different options for what could happen next with Brexit. However, none of the votes got a majority from MPs, so they are still stuck on what to do next.

In a shock announcement last night, Mrs May said she would stand down as Prime Minister! HOWEVER, she'll only stand down if the MPs support her Brexit deal in the next vote. Remember, they've already rejected this deal twice.

What do you think about this?

  1. Is Theresa May being fair when she says she'll stand down if they back her vote?
  2. Is Theresa May just trying to get a deal through and put and end to the stalemate?
  3. Is there another option that you can think of that would be better?

We'd love to know what you think - write your comments below!

    Here are my answers:

    1. I don't think Theresa May is being fair because she might be double-crossing.
    2. Well, I think she is trying to get a deal through and put an end to the stalemate, but I don't have an explanation...
    3. Nope.

    1. I think Theresa May is not being fair:
    This is my opinion because we do a vote to see what is the majority. This action is taken so everybody gets a say on what they want for the country. But this would be called bribing, since Mrs May is asking them to back her up so that her saying works. This is not we expect from a Prime Minister. She is supposed to be setting the example for the country.

    2: Yes I think she is trying to finish this deal off. Like Outstanding_Passionfruit said Theresa May cannot deal with this mayhem and so she is trying to finish it off.

    Should we trust what brexit says or should we just listen to it. What i think about Brexit is Theresa May is coming out with a lot of rubbish and i have heard this morning on the news, If we leave the EU she will quit her job and we will be able to pick our own prime minister ......

    Well done for giving reasons for your point of view. You say that our Prime Minister is supposed to be setting an example for our country. Can you give some attributes of what a good leader would be like and how they would behave?

    1. I don't think that this is fair at all. This is because she would be causing more trouble so, along with finding a deal, we would have to have a general election for a new PM. Also, as committed_physics said, it would be as if she were bribing the MPs. Furthermore, David Cameron thought that Theresa May was capable enough to lead the negotiations, so if she decided to resign she wouldn't be respecting his choice. Moreover, if May does resign, we might not have an indirect democracy vote and therefore make hasty decisions. As a result, they might not be the best option for the current state that the country is in. May resigning could mean that she is giving up and that we cannot go forward with Brexit.

    Is Theresa May being fair when she says she'll stand down if they back her vote?
    Well, I think she is not being fair because I think that if she has taken on that role of being a PM, then she should stick to it, even if there are people not agreeing with her deal. Its also a bit like black mailing because she says that if you don't vote for my deal, then you wont get a leader for your country.

    I don’t think Theresa May is being fair with the desisions she has made. I think this because she has come up with ideas and have been rejected twice. This mean she has a chance of REMAINING Prime Minister. This doesn’t give the MP’s a chance to discuss parts of Brexit without Theresa May on their back. Another option that Theresa May can think about is that if other Members of Parliament come up with a deal they can both agree on, she steps down as Prime Minister and someone with more ability to get us through Brexit without feeling as if we’ll NEVER get through this with a deal; or we’ll never do this the RIGHT way.

    Than’ you for reading my work.

    In my opinion I do not think Mrs May is being fair because I know that we need a deal but this is not fair on the MP's as she is treating Brexit as if it is a Rock, Paper, Scissors game - to the best of three. Although we have a deadline for Brexit, I think she should step down as another politician could sort out the Brexit chaos.

    In my own opinion I think that Theresa May doesn't even care about Brexit and she wants to do the deal and just get over about Brexit.At least we have a huge deadline for Brexit,but I think that we should do this a little different and get another MP to sort this huge chaos of Brexit.
    If you don't know what Brexit is let me tell you about it,Brexit is basically british citizens leaving the EU.Bye

    What i think is that she isn't be fair (although if i voted i would've voted stay) because the vote has finished and most of the votes in the houses of parliament have been done and they don't want to say yes to any of Theresa Mays votes. And yes i do think she wants to win all the votes just because she doesn't want to leave the EU; but to be fair i think she should just lose and we should just leave the EU. But Brexit is just really confusing and everyone just wants to know if they are finally going to leave the European Union or not. And my option/opinion is that we should just get it over and done with we should just leave the European Union and done we leave it all sounds so simple but it is not it will take forever to get from Northern island to southern island people will have to bring there passports just to see relatives imagine that how long it would. Why did this have to happen why didn't they just tell people what the vote was for.

    Recently there has been a lot of news about having European Parliament elections in May.
    The European Parliament is the chief parliament in the EU with 751 members from 28 member countries. To decide the membership of the countries there are a series of elections that occur once every five years. This parliament has the ability to decide laws which have legal effects on the entire EU. Also, they decide how the single market is to be controlled. The single market an association of countries, trading with each other freely. We may not be able to trade freely without a deal.
    This election is important. It's taking place in a time of confusion for the government and the, increasing, number of leaders are beginning to question democracy. This election could mean that the European Parliament will limit our benefits and advantages. The results of this election will decide 'whether members of the European Parliament become stronger defenders of tolerance and democratic values in Europe or the Parliament becomes weaker on these issues.' What this means is that if we will continue to use democracy when making major decisions or whether parliament will lose control. Also, the election could mean this: 'whether politicians who base their campaigns on conspiracy theories, fearmongering and social division will be rewarded with high office.' I got this straight from a website and I do not understand what it means, so I had to do some research. A conspiracy is another word for plan and a theory is a sort of explained guess. so, it's an estimation which may not actually happen in the future. This is similar to Brexit because when they gave the information for the voting many of the good things for leaving were only promises. So, what it's saying is that should politicians who make estimations and things that aren't guaranteed in their campaigns be able to take a high place in parliament.

    A good Leader is supposed to encourage their people. By listening to their opinions about a certain point and having the ability to solve problems and dealing with them. A good leader should be kind to their audience and respectful to them. This keeps them happy and safe
