Theresa May has suffered a fresh defeat over her Brexit plans.
The British prime minister kicked off a fresh round of debates over her proposed deal on Wednesday.
That's ahead of a parliament vote on it next week.
And she's not backing down on a plan that faces oppoition from all sides:
(SOUNDBITE) (English) BRITISH PRIME MINISTER, THERESA MAY, SAYING:
"The only way to avoid no deal is to vote for the deal.''
May didn't get off to the best start.
On day one of the five-day debate, lawmakers voted to demand that the government come up with an alternative plan within three days -- if May's deal is rejected.
That's instead of a planned 21-day limit.
Wednesday's vote doesn't have legal force, but it's another sign of how the parliamentary odds are stacked against May.
If parliament rejects May's deal next week, uncertainty over the future of Brexit will deepen.
That could pave the way for a disorderly exit, another referendum or even a general election.
The opposition Labour Party says it will call for a vote of no confidence in the government if May loses the vote.
