Thank you, Mr Speaker. The government has been defeated again by an enormous majority, and they must now accept their deal, their proposal, the one the prime minister's put, is clearly dead and does not have the support of this House.
And, quite clearly no deal must be taken off the table. We've said that before, and we'll say that again. But it does mean the House has got to come together with a proposal that could be negotiated. The Labour party has put that proposal, and we will put... and we will put that proposal again, because the dangers, the dangers of what the prime minister is proposing, are basically if she carries on threatening us all with the danger of no deal, the danger of that, knowing full well the damage that will do to the British economy.
This party will put forward our proposals again, which are about a negotiated customs union, access to the market, and protection of rights. Those are the ones we'll put forward. We believe there may well be a majority for them. But there will also be the potential of negotiating them. The prime minister has run down the clock, and the clock has been run out on her. Maybe it's time instead we had a general election, and the people...
...the people could choose who their government should be.
