British Prime Minister Theresa May’s Brexit deal cannot be resuscitated after it suffered a devastating defeat in parliament and the government must find a new plan, a pro-Brexit lawmaker from May’s Conservative Party said.

“There is no getting away from it. That was an absolutely devastating blow,” Steve Baker — a member of the European Research Group of Conservative lawmakers which opposed May’s plan — told BBC radio on Wednesday.

May should now push for a free trade agreement with the European Union but Britain should also be prepared to leave the EU without a deal, Baker said.

He echoed comments from other members of the pro-Brexit ERG group who have said they will support May’s government in a confidence vote scheduled for later on Wednesday.
