Senior government sources said it was possible that May would refuse to hold a further meaningful vote on her deal should there be no chance of success.

"If the proposal were to go back to square one and negotiate a new deal, that would mean a much longer extension - nearly certainly requiring the United Kingdom to participate in the European Parliament elections in May", she said in an article in the Sunday Telegraph.

Seven cabinet ministers - Ms Truss, Brexit Secretary Stephen Barclay, International Trade Secretary Liam Fox, International Development Secretary Penny Mordaunt, Commons leader Andrea Leadsom, Transport Secretary Chris Grayling and Defense Secretary Gavin Williamson - voted against the government motion.

The party has compiled an alternate deal with five demands they hope Parliament will adopt for Brexit deal.

May is expected to again submit the withdrawal deal to lawmakers next week, though it has already been rejected twice.

Earlier on Thursday, lawmakers voted by 334 to 85 against a second referendum on European Union membership.

For employers, the political ping pong ball of "deal versus no deal" has posed significant challenges managing their workforce and planning for the future.

Employers are thus advised to remain alert to changes announced shortly, and to ensure that company managers of the global mobility function are kept apprised of upcoming cross-border assignments. All 27 leaders must unanimously agree.

In essence, Mrs May has handed Brexit supporters an ultimatum - ratify her deal by March 20 or face a delay to Brexit way beyond June 30 that would open up the possibility that the entire divorce could be ultimately thwarted.

The first would be to get the a deal on the Withdrawal Agreement and then have a short extension while the second would be a longer period to sort out Brexit, he explained.

MPs James Heappey and Dr Liam Fox voted against delaying Article 50 - which says the United Kingdom will leave the European Union on March 29. The Observer understands that Labour will use the opportunity to offer its most strident support yet for a second referendum, by voting for a plan drawn up by two Labour backbenchers to put May's deal to a public vote.

Mr Boles, who has spoken out against leaving the European Union with no deal, said a "division had opened up" between him and the local association.

"Although a no-deal exit was voted down, we can not predict what will happen because it depends on how negotiations with the European Union will go, We will have to watch developments closely", Aso said.

"She needs to go with dignity, if she sets a date for her departure she can be remembered as the woman who delivered Brexit", said one.
