SIR VINCE CABLE has claimed Theresa May’s bruising Brexit defeat in the House of Commons on Tuesday evening spells the “beginning of the end of Brexit”.
Liberal Democrat leader Sir Vince Cable has claimed Prime Minister Theresa May’s Brexit defeat is the “beginning of the end” of the UK’s departure from the EU. The Prime Minister suffered a historic Commons defeat on her Brexit Withdrawal Agreement with a loss of 432 votes to 202, with a majority of 230. Speaking to the BBC Liberal Democrat leader Sir Vince, said: “The long-term significance of this is this is the beginning of the end of Brexit.
“It may be uncomfortable for many people, but I think that is indeed where we are heading.”
He added: “I think the options are narrowing, if she goes back to Brussels, she may perform a miracle but we have got no evidence that this is remotely in prospect.
“I think one of the big next steps is going to take no deal off the table.
“She needs to take action to remove it from the table and that can only be done by stopping or postponing Article 50.”
Speaking immediately after the huge defeat, Theresa May said: "The House has spoken. It's clear that the House does not support this deal.
