It is expected that Prime Minister Theresa May is to vote against Britain leaving the European Union without a Withdrawal Agreement when a Commons vote takes place this evening.
Should this be the case, this will alarmingly signify that the Prime Minister (and other members within the cabinet who choose to back her) believes that a bad deal is better than no deal.
The Prime Minister has informed the house that this will be a free vote for her colleagues and one which bear the most significance since the free vote on gay marriage back in 2013.
During the earlier days of the initial manifesto championing, May has always insisted that “no deal is better than a bad deal” however should she decide to take the stance that some reports are claiming to expect, this would reveal her true hand and the notion that she was never intent on supporting a clean Brexit from the outset.
Tensions will undoubtedly be running high among those conservative members and voters who support a full clean Brexit as the indications and sentiment show that she will be backing an extension to Article 50 in the follow up vote on Thurday in Westminster.
