LONDON (Reuters) - Britain is now likely leave the European Union without a deal after lawmakers defeated Theresa May’s European Union withdrawal deal, a leading eurosceptic lawmaker in her Conservative Party said on Monday.

Jacob Rees-Mogg, chairman of the European Research Group of anti-EU lawmakers in May’s Conservative party, said the next most likely outcome is the government will secure a revised Brexit deal.

“I think if you were to rank them the most likely is no deal, the second most likely is a redone deal, third is a delay, and fourth a long way behind is not leaving at all,” Rees-Mogg told LBC radio.
