The UK Parliament will have "the last chance we have to vote for Brexit as we understood it" on Friday, as described by the Trade Minister Liam Fox.

29 March was meant to mark the monumental occasion in British political history — its exit from the European Union, but instead the UK Parliament will have to vote on a twice-rejected Brexit deal.

The Parliament's inability to consent in a unanimous vision for the country's future and relationship with the EU has become a matter of frustration for Brussels, Downing Street and the British public alike.

Ahead of Friday's vote, a number of MPs — who previously opposed Theresa May's deal — have switched to back it, faced by the prospect of a no-deal Brexit. One of the most noticeable flops was by Eurosceptic Conservative MP a likely contender to replace May, Boris Johnson.

Lawmakers outlined their voting intentions via their social media accounts, ahead of the 13.00 GMT session in the House of Commons.

MPs will voice their view on the 585-page Withdrawal Agreement but not a shorter declaration on future UK-EU ties. The alteration to the presented documents was prompted by a ban against asking lawmakers the same question over and over again.
