>> The no's have it, the no's have it. The Prime Minister.>> Embattled British Prime Minister Theresa May faces a second vote of no confidence on Wednesday after a crushing defeat of her Brexit plan.>> I have now tabled a motion of no confidence.>> This time it's a no confidence vote in her government, tabled by the opposition Labour party on Tuesday night after Parliament rejected May's draft divorce deal between the UK government and the European Union.
00:00:29
More than a hundred of May's own conservative lawmakers voted against her deal. Overall it lost 202 votes to 432. Rejected by both hardliners and pro EU lawmakers. The worst parliamentary defeat for a government in nearly a century. It's now more likely that the UK could crush out of Europe at the end of March without a deal.
00:00:52
If May survives the attack on her government she has until Monday to reveal her next move. It won't be canceling Brexit, she insisted Wednesday.>> There are actually two ways of avoiding no deal. The first is to agree a deal, and the second would be to revoke Article 50, and that is something that this government will not do.
00:01:12
>> So what are May's other options? Should could go back to Brussels for more concessions. But the EU says it won't go back to the drawing board, and will only consider a request for closer post-Brexit ties. That's anathema to Brexiters.>>

> If the United Kingdom decides to adjust its own red lines in the future and if they decide to be more ambitious, to go beyond a simple free trade agreement, an already substantial accord, the European Union will then remain immediately ready to go along with this evolution and to respond favorably.
00:01:51
>> Then there's the possibility of a general election, which could bring months of uncertainty. Or even a second referendum to give Britons the chance to change their minds. Polls suggest a majority would now vote against Brexit. That said, most polls did get it wrong last time round.
