Brexit, carried out in the night: the law that excludes the "no deal" passes (by 1 vote)

The United Kingdom cannot leave Europe without an agreement: in other words, no deal, even if this means asking Brussels for a postponement of Brexit and participating, if necessary, in the next elections for the European Parliament. It was the British House of Commons which decided, during the night, that it approved - with a narrow majority of 313 votes against 312 against it that did not fail to raise controversy - the bipartisan text promoted by Labor Yvette Cooper and conservative Oliver Letvin that prevents the no deal, divorce without agreement, and requires the premier Theresa May to ask the EU for an extension of the Brexit. Now the proposed law passes to the House of Lords, where unless obstructionism can complete the process in a few hours.
