Thanks to an amendment tabled on Monday evening MPs look like they’ve taken back control of Brexit, but they could also have mistakenly given Theresa May’s deal the lifeline it desperately needed. 

On Wednesday there will be a series of indicative votes in parliament on alternatives to May’s Brexit proposal. An amendment tabled by Conservative backbencher Oliver Letwin passed by a majority of 27 votes on Monday, meaning MPs will vote on an array of Brexit proposals, including a Common Market solution; a Free Trade Agreement Brexit; and a second referendum.
