Wednesday’s uproar in the Chamber was unprecedented.

Against advice from his own Clerks, Speaker John Bercow undermined his role’s neutrality by allowing MPs to vote on a vexatious amendment, laid by arch Remainer Dominic Grieve.

The Government lost the vote and, as a result, Mrs May must produce a new solution within three days, rather than the previous 21, should her withdrawal deal fail next Tuesday, as seems likely.

It’s important to remember that whatever MPs do to try and prevent Brexit, the law states that the UK will leave the EU on 29 March.

As I have said before, leaving without a deal is neither a ‘cliff-edge’, nor is it ‘crashing out’.

Most countries trade on World Trade Organisation terms, both peacefully and effectively.

I have no doubt whatsoever that a clean break from the EU is now the only option.

Free from the influence of partisan politicians and bureaucrats on both sides of the Channel, a sensible deal with the EU can and will be negotiated.

It saddens me that so many of my colleagues on both sides of the House continue to ignore the referendum back in June 2016.

Remember, that all the main Parties promised to honour the result in their 2017 election manifestos, with MPs being elected on that platform.

Those same MPs voted to trigger Article 50, repeal the European Communities Act and pass the European Union (Withdrawal) Act by large majorities.

If we are indeed Honourable Members, we should behave as such.

Failing to reach a deal with the EU at this stage was predictable.

So, now MPs must unite, get the country out of the EU, and look to a new, exciting and prosperous future as a truly sovereign nation once again.
