Opposition Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn has demanded a general election after embattled Prime Minister Theresa May's second major parliamentary defeat on the Brexit, saying she must let the people decide who should lead them into the next phase of the UK's divorce deal with the EU.

She said: "I'm grateful... for the spirit in which they have sought to broker compromise in this House".

Some 127 leave-supporting Members of Parliament backed Amendment B, tabled by Conservative Lee Rowley, which sought to add to the motion to be voted on Thursday night that "the result of the 2016 European Union referendum should be respected and that a second European Union referendum would be divisive and expensive, and therefore should not take place".

Labour's official policy is to keep the option of a second referendum on the table and Jeremy Corbyn's MPs had been ordered to abstain when the issue was pushed to a vote in the Commons.

But although she managed to convince about 40 Tory MPs to change their mind, it was not almost enough to overturn the historic 230 vote defeat she suffered on the same deal in January.

She will tell MPs whether she will vote for no deal or not when she opens Wednesday's debate.

If no-deal is rejected, MPs will vote on Thursday on delaying Brexit by extending Article 50 - the legal mechanism that takes the United Kingdom out of the EU.

"The prime minister has run down the clock and the clock has been run out on her", the 69-year-old leader said in the House of Commons.

Four members of the cabinet defied a three-line whip on a vote to leave the European Union without a deal.

Mrs May agreed but insisted her deal is a "good deal" and she wants the United Kingdom to leave with a good deal.

The vote came after May's plan to exit the European Union was also rejected with only 17 days before the Brexit due date.

Mrs May declined to do so, sticking by her deal as the best way to Brexit, but added money had been made available for no-deal preparations.

Ministers met for a reportedly testy political meeting of Cabinet ahead of the votes, at which Mrs May was said to have berated four senior colleagues who defied the Tory whip earlier in the week to abstain in the no-deal vote.

May responded: "The deal that he's proposing has been rejected several times by this house".

"The Prime Minister's negotiations have failed. So can the prime minister tell us, exactly what her plan is now?"

"We take note of the votes in the House of Commons this evening", the spokesman said.
