PRO-REMAIN Speaker John Bercow today derailed Theresa May’s Brexit plan – banning the PM from bringing her deal back to the Commons this week.

The Commons boss said the Government can’t ask MPs to vote again on the deal after it was defeated last week.

He warned Mrs May that if she wants to hold a third “meaningful vote” on the withdrawal agreement there must be substantial changes.

The ruling was welcomed by both Remainer MPs and hardline Brexiteers who are keen to kill off the PM’s deal for good.

Mrs May was hoping to hold a fresh vote on the deal this week in a last-ditch bid to get it signed off and avoid a long delay to the Brexit process.

Ministers will now scramble to find a legal loophole which could allow them to bring the deal back to the Commons despite Mr Bercow’s order.
