Britain passed the point of no return in its historic battle to cut ties with Brussels tonight as MPs backed the Brexit Bill.
The Commons endorsed the legislation by 498 votes to 114 after the government saw off a desperate bid by more than 100 Remoaners to block it.
In the first of a crucial set of votes in the Commons, a ‘wrecking’ amendment that would have effectively killed the law was defeated by 336 to 100.
The House then gave the Bill its second reading by another huge margin, despite the opposition from Labour MPs, the SNP and most Liberal Democrats.
One Labour MP yelled ‘suicide’ as the result was read out in the chamber.
