All of the proposed options were defeated when MPs ‘took back control’ of the Brexit process through a series of indicative votes – but the results still illustrate where (and how) consensus might emerge, writes Maddy Thimont Jack.
The mantra that EU negotiations always go to the wire ignores the fact that the PM signed her Withdrawal Agreement in November. Even if (and that's a big if) a deal goes through, the UK now faces the prospect of a long transition, argues Jill Rutter.
The EU27 are prepared to wait until 28 March to grant an extension to Article 50, but only if the UK passes the Brexit deal next week. If MPs are serious about avoiding a no deal, their only option may be a longer extension, argues Georgina Wright.
