MPs will vote on Thursday to delaying Brexit, such a move could potentially cause "riots" on the streets of London.

Mr Clark told ITV's Peston: "Once that became the only motion there, then for me and my colleagues to vote against the last chance Parliament had to stop us leaving with no deal on March 29 is something we couldn't do".

The vote came after Theresa May's Withdrawal Agreement was rejected for the second time on Tuesday and MPs voted the following day to rule out a no-deal Brexit.

"It's still really hard to see how the numbers stack up for Theresa May, but she's giving it one more go", he said.

The EU's Chief Brexit negotiator, Michel Barnier, said in a Twitter statement: "The EU has done everything it can to help get the Withdrawal Agreement over the line".

She finished with a score of 1420, an improvement of 400 points over her PSAT taken a year earlier. Among those charged were college coaches, Hollywood celebrities and other elite socialites.

Voting is set to get underway at 17:00 (GMT).

This is all coming to a head now because the British government triggered the start of the two-year departure process on 29 March 2017.

This is likely to include continuing to pay £10billion a year in membership fees and taking part in European Parliament elections on May 22.

May said her preference was for a short delay, which would mean the government trying to pass the deal she negotiated by the middle of next week.

Mrs May has warned this is a possibility. "There will be no further interpretations of the interpretations, no further assurances of the reassurances if the "meaningful vote" tomorrow fails".

Downing Street says yes but has not scheduled it. "I don't think people voted knowing what was going to happen". But she had to change her stance when the House backed a proposal from Labour's Yvette Cooper that the wording should be altered to reject a no-deal completely.

That will be what Mrs May will be hoping in any case.

Corbyn countered that it was the same "bad deal" MPs had rejected in January and that his party would be voting against it again because it risks people's living standards and jobs. If they don't it will be a longer delay - but with string attached the Commons will have to endorse. Does it want to hold a second referendum?

But lawmakers voted against a new plebiscite, 334-85, with most lawmakers from the main opposition Labor Party abstaining.

And anti-Brexit campaigners haven't abandoned the idea of a new referendum on remaining in the EU. The discussion on Article 50, that is done and dusted. Brexiteers see Tusk's "long extension" as a threat created to force them into backing May's plan.

An extension is not guaranteed automatically, as any such move needs the unanimous approval of all 27 European Union states.

Are there any other reasons they could refuse an extension?

Another key date is May 23.

'If the United Kingdom has not left the European Union by then, it will be legally required to hold these elections, ' he said. "I regret that Brexit's happening". "Our "no-deal" preparations are now more important than ever before".
