Theresa May has announced she will vote AGAINST a No Deal Brexit .
The Prime Minister revealed she will back a motion tonight that calls for a no-deal exit not to happen on March 29.
The dramatic shift comes despite her spending £4billion of taxpayer cash on No Deal planning and declaring for years that “no deal is better than a bad deal”.
Tonight’s motion – on which Tory MPs have a free vote – does not however rule out no deal completely.
If MPs or the EU do not agree to delay Brexit, or there’s still deadlock after a delay, tonight’s motion states No Deal is still the “default” option.
The admission came in a fiery clash at Prime Minister’s Questions with Jeremy Corbyn hours before tonight’s No Deal vote.
Mr Corbyn asked how she would vote and she replied: “I will be voting for the motion in my name.”
It came hours after Mrs May’s Brexit deal was defeated for the second time in the Commons by a whopping 149 votes.
Labour’s leader blasted the Prime Minister saying she had “obviously failed” and “she no longer has the ability to lead”.
“This is a rudderless government in the face of a huge national crisis,” he declared.
Mrs May – who could barely speak due to a sore throat – croaked: “I may not have my voice but I do understand the voice of the country.”
But that prompted uproar among Labour MPs, as Mr Corbyn said she had put jobs and industry at risk and the country in crisis.
“She needs to show leadership,” he blasted.
“What is she now for?”
Mr Corbyn accused her of being “ambivalent” about the final outcome and said Labour’s plan for a customs union with the EU was now “the credible show in town”.
Yet the defiant PM instead tore into the Labour leader after he announced he’d back a second referendum – only for one of his allies to say it wasn’t the “priority”.
Mrs May said: “He doesn’t agree with government policy.
“He doesn’t even agree with Labour Party policy.
“He has nothing to offer this country.”
But croaky-voiced Mrs May replied: “You can only take no deal off the table by doing one of two things
“Revoke Article 50, which means betraying the vote of the referendum, or agree a deal.”
