British MPs Prepare To Vote On Alternative Brexit Proposals

British MPs will take part in votes later to see if they can find some common ground on Brexit.

Different suggestions have been put to the House of Commons speaker, who'll now decide on a final list of choices.

MPs will tick yes or no beside each option given to them on a ballot paper.

They will be a range of opinions - from accepting the withdrawal agreement, to having a no deal Brexit, to revoking Article 50 or even having a second referendum.

The hope is that one will carry a majority and provide a clear way forward.

However, there's a good chance that won't happen - and the political stalemate will continue.

Meanwhile, Theresa May is expected to try to get more support for her withdrawal deal when she meets her party later.

A number of pro-Brexit MPs - including Jacob Rees-Mogg - have indicated they could now back the deal in order to ensure Brexit happens.

Former foreign secretary Boris Johnson has hinted a change of leadership and approach could get him to back the deal.

He said: "This first phase [of negotiations] I think has gone very badly - I think we need to see a real sign that the second phase will be very different."
