No, it would've still passed.
British Parliament Sectioned Under The Mental Health Act


UNLOADING 650 straitjackets out of the back of vans which had the name of a nearby mental institution written on them, medical professionals began the sad but necessary task of sectioning all serving MPs in the British parliament.
Acting in the best interest of a large group of people who have reportedly become completely untethered from reality, doctors confirmed they had no choice but to act after watching a live feed from parliament yesterday.
The disturbing footage broadcast live and before the watershed saw Theresa May leading the charge in voting in favour of rejecting a deal she herself had proposed and agreed with the EU. In the most disconcerting footage seen, May went on to claim she would successfully renegotiate with the EU who have stated countless times they will not renegotiate.
“It’s called a ‘collective mental state’. Essentially the entire parliament has caught a contagious case of dumbfounding irrational behaviour. Imagine an unsupervised schizophrenic on speed and you’re about halfway there to what this lot have been acting like,” confirmed one doctor as he fitted a jacket to Boris Johnson who was babbling mindlessly about a ‘freedom clause’.
People detained under the Mental Health Act (1983) need urgent treatment for a mental health disorder and are at risk of harm to themselves or others.
There were further unsettling scenes when PM May was carefully guided into the back of an ambulance in a straitjacket. Smiling to cameras and putting on her now trademark brave face May confidently and loudly proclaimed “off to Brussels now to get that deal you all voted for when you voted to leave” as MPs, also being carted off, cheered loudly in support.
“Brexit will be a success, I have a Commons majority now. Nothing can stop us,” May added before being sedated by a nurse.

ok, let's clarify some wording / nomenclature first:

[1]
Germany, France, Spain, etc.. will not pay tariffs on goods sold to the UK.. the UK will have to pay such tariffs, making the product more expensive, IN the UK.
EU countries would pay tariffs on UK products they buy, if the UK imposes such tariffs..
And as you said, the UK does not seem to have a lot to sell, but a lot to buy.. so this is an issue for the UK (which is why they want "a deal", and one that protects them the same as before, while they don't want to be a part of 'it" anymore.. this is where the whole mess starts).

The UK has profited from a free trade agreement with 27 EU members, being allowed to imprt tariff free much more than what they export.. a big deal, an advantage for the UK.

United Kingdom - trade balance of goods 2007-2017 | Statistic

[2]
Now, one thing i'd like to hear from you.. what is it that you think the UK has to sell, that the EU should buy, but doesn't ? What is the big wealth maker in the UK ? What do yo have to offer, better than the rest of the world, that is on high demand, but the EU just out of spite doesn't want from you ?

[3]
And for what other reason than goodheartedness should the EU keep all their advantages to the UK as they are today, when the UK openly says "we don't want you and your rules anymore".?
How would that be fair to all those other countries who remain in the EU, and pay their share ?

you're living in a dreamland, really...

Brexiteers don't really give a damn about economic issues. They just want to stop the non-white hoards from "invading" their Anglo state.

What, all the way from Brussels? Gosh ................... do Brexiteers know that Belgiques are non-white? Perhaps someone should tell them ...............

Brexit has nothing to do with colour -- what so ever, You are putting an American problem unto our shoulders - we have no problems with colour - there were some if one goes back a few decades - in society as opposed to authority, that is but black and white youths grew up in the same areas - as with other ethnicities who are well integrated.

You, I believe are thinking of Islam - and yes Islam has brought problems with it - which if you want to seriously discuss we can Or you are thinking of cheap labour and trafficking coming from the Eastern bloc maybe --- mmmmm but perhaps not since they are usually white people.

Dunno NightSwimmer, you need to be more specific in your accusations against half of a whole nation.

That's not the majority of the Leave vote, but it is a part of it. Given the thin final margin, maybe even a decisive part.

The people who campaigned on this kind of message knew exactly what they were doing.

What either side said was irrelevant - as obviously was the nine million pounds of tax payers money that the gov spent on Remain leaflets which went through every letter box in the UK - Most of us had made up our minds even before the referendum was announced - we are not gullible idiots that you wish to portray us to be - for instance:-

I have never said any such thing. I have repeatedly stated in this thread that people do not deserve to be blamed for being lied to.

This is why talking to you is a waste of time. If you want to criticize someone, you make shit up and say idiotic things like "What either side said was irrelevant."

That's not at all true, that's never been true in any contested political campaign ever waged. Messaging makes a huge difference.

The majority of public campaigning was for the Remain vote including, I repeat, nine million pounds of taxpayer's money spent by the Tory Gov on pamphlets to every household promoting Remain - as opposed to your photo there which hardly any one saw until Remain complained about it. ps both sides had to, by law, have the same amount of money to campaign with but the money did not go to the better Leave group, it went to the lesser group which Gov chose ( expecting it to lose) - the Tory Gov cheated by spending an extra £9 million of tax payer's money on top.

It was irrelevant because it was not a general or any other sort of election - no politician was going to gain anything out of it especially the Leave vote = 160 MPs voted to Leave as opposed to 486 who voted to Remain. Not many minds were made up by any campaign - which was biased toward Remain in the Media, anyway - most people knew what they would vote even before any boring --- oh so boring --- campaigning.

It was our vote, our vote as to whether we wanted to be ruled by a Central Gov in Brussels or in Westminster.

I remember all of the happenings of the campaign. I paid close attention to it via multiple media sources. It drew broad international interest and engaged the British body politic like nothing else, resulting in the turnout you had. Either you're living in another world or you're attempting to leverage ignorance about what actually happened.

Either way, what you've got now is a choice between having no seat at the table and complying with all EU regulations. No Deal is not happening. The EU is about to lay terms at May's feet and Parliament will comply, if even at the last minute. Odds are better than even that they will demand a two-year extension and full participation in EU elections. At least a year, I figure.

It will be that, or pass May's deal, which leaves you with no elected representation in Brussels, no seat on the Council or the Commission, and requirements to comply with all EU trade regulations at a minimum. The people who led the Leave campaign, people like Boris Johnson, led you down that path. Even after they quit the government, they still voted to keep May in confidence. Nigel Farage announced this walk across Britain to protest the situation, only to admit later that he wouldn't even participate.

They are charlatans, and they always have been.

We have BBC =Remain. ITV = Remain. Channel 4= Remain and some have Sky = Remain. The only News Paper which was remotely behind ( now it is totally) Leave was the Telegraph. Out of the 2000+ participants in one prominent BBC news discussion program, since the referendum was first announced, were Remain as opposed to 100+ who were Leave - tat sounds about right for them all. Most of the time all participants in discussion programs are Remain, when they do have a Leaver, they are always alone among a group of Remainers.

The majority of the country simply want the law to be kept by Parliament. This is the law

European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018

Protests look as though they will take the form of blocking ports and airports and go slows and the like as opposed to demos and Farage doesn't have the reach - he has lost a lot of cred - protests in any of its form are coming from the grass roots now.
