The British Parliament will vote this evening on the way forward for Brexit.
MPs will have the chance to back a number of different scenarios, and the debate in the House of Commons is now.
There are more than a dozen different Brexit scenarios on the table for consideration, and throughout the afternoon, MPs will debate a number of different choices:
- a customs union with the EU
- a no-deal Brexit
- a 'softer' or 'Norway-style' Brexit
- Mrs May's deal (with MPs potentially proposing changes)
- revoking Article 50
- a second referendum
Today seems a good day to reiterate that People's Vote and Soft Brexit are not competitors, no matter what the leadership of either side says. They are ways to preventing the damage of Brexit.

By seven o'clock this evening, members of parliament will vote, with the hope being that there will be a solution to the current impasse.
As all of that rumbles on, in the background, there are continued calls for British Prime Minister Theresa May to resign.
The SNP's Stewart Hosie said that Mrs. May is "liable, responsible, culpable for the chaos that is the Brexit debacle."
Appeal to EP: You should be open to a long extension, if the UK wishes to rethink its strategy. 6 million people signed the petition, 1 million marched. They may not feel sufficiently represented by UK Parliament but they must feel represented by you. Because they are Europeans.

Downing Street says they'll only bring another 'meaningful vote' on the deal forward if they're confident they can win it.
