Labour split three ways as the Commons debated a Lords amendment to the EU (Withdrawal) Bill calling for EEA membership to remain on the negotiating table.
Yesterday a minister unexpectedly resigned over the government's Brexit strategy, but one of his constituents is still absolutely fuming about it.
In a highly charged atmosphere in parliament, lawmakers who oppose the government said they had received death threats and brandished a copy of one of Britain's tabloid newspapers, the Daily Express, which ran a headline saying: "Ignore the will of the people at your peril".
"The prime minister said that the votes were important in terms of the message they send to Brussels", May's spokesman said she told her cabinet team of ministers.

The government was putting a combative spin on the concessions Tuesday evening: "The Brexit Secretary has set out three tests that any new amendment has to meet - not undermining the negotiations, not changing the constitutional role of Parliament and Government in negotiating worldwide treaties, and respecting the referendum result", a spokesperson for the Brexit department said in a statement.
But it has secured victory on all the other votes so far on Tuesday, including a challenge to the government's plan to put March 29, 2019, or "Brexit Day".
There was little doubt the government would win on the customs union and single market, which some pro-EU lawmakers say is the only way for Britain to retain economically advantageous close ties with the bloc, with the opposition Labour Party also divided over future relations.
Sarah Wollaston, a prominent Tory Remain rebel, has indicated that she will accept this pledge from the Government, and will therefore not be voting against her party. She now relies on the support of a small Northern Irish party.

Most officials also expect the Fed will have to raise rates at least three times in 2019 and then at least once in 2020. The statement omitted previous language saying that the main rate would remain "for some time" below longer-run levels.
Since then both the UK Labour Party and Conservative Party have made manifesto commitments to delivering the outcome of the vote. Part C would give parliament the power to issue direct orders to the government if no deal was in place by 15 February 2019.
