More Than 120 MPs Voted Against Their Constituencies On Brexit

The vote comes after two days of debate in which many lawmakers from both government and opposition lawmakers said they would respect voters' June 23 decision to leave the European Union and back the bill.

"Although I personally campaigned and voted for the United Kingdom to remain a member of the European Union, I have been clear since the referendum that I respect the decision taken by the British people and will do my best to ensure that we get the best deal possible for Sunderland, the north east and our country as a whole".

The government have published the long-awaited Brexit white paper.

Sir Keir also claimed the White Paper offered "nothing that progresses the situations of European Union nationals in this country" as he repeated Labour's demand for the Government to take "unilateral action" on guaranteeing the rights of European Union migrants already living in the UK.

May also warned EU member states against pushing for harsh exit terms for Britain, saying it would be "an act of calamitous self-harm" for the European Union.

Ministers were forced to draw up the legislation after the Supreme Court ruled that Parliament's approval was needed before the Brexit process can begin.

Lawmakers voted by 498 to 114 in favour of allowing the Bill to progress to the next, more detailed legislative stage.

Opposition Brexit minister Keir Starmer criticised the government for releasing the 77-page document minutes before the debate in parliament, and called on Davis to guarantee the rights of European Union citizens in Britain.

Ten frontbenchers, including shadow foreign office minister Catherine West, voted against triggering Article 50, along with three party whips.

Osborne said the government had chosen not to make the economy the priority, but had prioritized immigration control, which was a clear message from the referendum campaign.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn ordered his MPs not block the bill, but 47 rebelled, including leading members of the party who quit his shadow cabinet team in order to vote against the bill.

The document is a summary of the Government's plans, usually published for information and for a prompt discussion before a formal parliamentary bill is introduced.

On the other hand, conservatives like Boris Johnson, the British foreign minister and an ardent Brexiter, applauded Wednesday's vote as "historic".

The singer shared the surprise news on Instagram, says The Scottish Sun, and posted a picture of her bare bump.
