May's Brexit gambit fails as her premiership fades

British Prime Minister Theresa May's final Brexit gambit was in tatters on Wednesday - just hours after her offer of a vote on a second referendum and closer trading arrangements failed to win over either opposition lawmakers or many in her own party.

May's Brexit gambit fails as her premiership fades

Prime Minister Theresa May's latest Brexit gambit appears to have fallen to pieces.

She had dangled a closer trading relationship with the EU, and even the possibility of reversing Brexit altogether in a second referendum, as last-ditch incentives to persuade lawmakers to back her deal.

What is likely her final effort before her crisis-riven premiership ends.

But it just wasn't enough to win over the opposition.

This is how it played out in the papers after.

Even members of her own party are still not convinced.

Conservative and opposition Labour lawmakers lined up to criticize her Withdrawal Agreement Bill.

The legislation which implements the terms of Britain's divorce from the EU.

Some even increased efforts to oust her.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn described May's new offer as - quote - "largely a rehash of the government's position" - in talks with the opposition that broke down last week.

It's been nearly three years since Britain voted to leave the EU, and with yet another deadlock imminent - it remains unclear how, when or if Britain will leave the bloc.
