Liberal Democrat Brexit spokesman Tom Brake said: "As has become a tradition in Brexit negotiations, the Tories have been forced to cobble together a compromise. And I can not bring myself to vote for it in the bastion of liberty, freedom and human rights that is our Parliament".

"When the Government is able to set out an achievable, clearly defined path, one that has been properly considered, whose implications have been foreseen, and that is rooted in reality and evidence, not dreams and dogma, it should go to the people, once again, to seek their confirmation", he wrote.

"We can live with it", one senior Leaver said.

'We must not weaken the PMs hands in her discussions with Brussels so I hope Philip backs Theresa in the lobbies over the next two days despite any personal reservations he may hold'.

Mr Burt said that he had "absolutely no intention" of resigning over Brexit.

Mr Boles insisted he did not agree with Dr Lee on holding a referendum, but admired his "honesty and integrity".

Mr Corbyn (pictured top) thanked those who resigned for their work with the frontbench. The prime minister still has time to come up with a form of words acceptable to both sides, but the expectations of the anti-Brexit rebels have been raised significantly.

May has said that no deal is better than a bad deal.

The Prime Minister's flagship legislation is on a knife edge as the government bids to reverse a slew of amendments imposed by the House of Lords.

This is significant because a majority in parliament wishes to see a softer Brexit deal that would retain closer customs ties with the European Union after Britain leaves.

Tom Tugendhat, the chair of the foreign affairs committee, told Sky News he believed it was unnecessary, because if MPs voted against the Brexit deal the government would be likely to fall.

The joint bid defeated Morocco's application with 134 of the 200 votes cast at the FIFA Congress in Moscow on Wednesday. The $4 billion stadium being built for the Los Angeles Rams, due to open in 2020, is also likely to feature.

The Lords amendment would have given parliament the power to decide what happened next, with the possibility of reopening negotiations or staying in the bloc.

He said: "I understand the difficulties MPs representing constituencies which voted strongly for Leave or Remain have on the EEA amendment to the EU Withdrawal Bill".

Speaking in Munich, he welcomed political settlements in the House of Commons but warned "this can't be Britain just negotiating with itself; the real negotiation has to happen between the British negotiating team and the European Union negotiation team".

Ahead of the crucial votes, Brexit Secretary David Davis warned MPs that defeat would undermine the UK's negotiating stance in Brussels.

The fudge was put together by another former minister, Oliver Letwin.

The last-minute horse trading appeared to have worked when all Tory MPs - with the exception of Ken Clarke, Soubry and Lee - voted with the Government.

"This is the moment when we have to tell each other the truth", said Hilary Benn, a Labour lawmaker who voted for the EEA motion.

Laura Smith stepped down as a junior shadow cabinet office minister to vote with the Government, saying "remaining in the EEA is not the right way forward for our country". I've made that quite clear'.

Losing the vote in the Commons would have spelt serious trouble for Mrs May, whose position as prime minister was weakened a year ago when she lost her parliamentary majority after calling a general election.

It would also give hard Brexiteers the chance to "scupper a good deal", she claimed. The Lords have proposed amendments to the Bill and now it's up to the Commons to decide which, if any, changes they'll accept.
