Brexit withdrawal vote in British Parliament now set for January 15

In December, Mrs May postponed the crucial vote because it appeared here government would be defeated - something which would have plunged the Brexit process into further crisis.
308 MPs voted for - compared to 297 MPs who voted against - an amendment made by Remainer Tory MP Dominic Grieve, requiring the Government to set out its alternative suggestion no more than three days after a defeat in the "meaningful vote". And I think people are beginning to realise that it's the Prime Minister's deal or there may not be a Brexit'.
Responding to May's comments, the leader of the main opposition Labour Party Jeremy Corbyn called on May to "do the right thing" and call a public vote if she fails to get her divorce deal through parliament. Lawmakers would have the power to amend that plan.
UK Brexit minister Martin Callanan ruled out that prospect and said May would update MPs on Wednesday about the assurances over the backstop she is seeking from the EU.
The government previously had 21 days to report back to Parliament.
It was the second setback in as many days for the prime minister, after MPs voted late Tuesday to deny the government certain taxation powers in a no-deal scenario - another attempt to avoid such an outcome.
On Tuesday, legislators backed a motion prohibiting ministers from spending on preparations to leave the European Union without a deal unless authorised by parliament. But the bloc refuses to reopen the agreement, and opposition to the negotiated deal remains strong among British lawmakers. "These discussions have shown that further clarification over the backstop is possible and those talks will continue over the next few days", May said. "She failed. Isn't the Prime Minister bringing back exactly the same deal she admitted would be defeated four weeks ago?"
Amid the political stalemate, pro-Brexit members of Parliament are urging the government to ramp up preparations for leaving the European Union without a deal.
Despite the impasse over Brexit in parliament, Bercow's move to allow the amendment sparked utter fury from both Tory hard Brexiteers and those backing May and her deal.
