It was only yesterday when the British MPs voted in favor of Boris Johnson's Brexit deal but rejected the three-day legislation timetable which would have speeded up the procedure and met the deadline of October 31.
British media say that if the European Union agrees to delay the deadline until the end of January, Johnson will push for a general election to win a parliamentary majority and lead the Brexit process.
As the clock ticks down to the deadline for Britain's departure, Brexit is hanging in the balance as a divided parliament debates when, how and even whether it should happen.
Just minutes before the vote on the timetable motion, the government's Brexit bill was backed by a vote of 329 to 299 in the second reading in parliament, clearing its first hurdle.
The Johnson government wanted the House of Commons to scrutinise the bill and pass it in three days, which was rejected by 322 to 308 votes.
If the European Union grants an extension to January 31, 2020, the prime minister says he will call for a general election in an effort to break the stalemate in the House of Commons.
Tuesday's vote is a step towards the possible separation, but the timeline of further votes this week remains critical to determining whether or not the final deal will be reached by the October 31 deadline. Johnson would need the support of parliament to call one.
Mr Johnson replied: "There are no checks GB/NI".
Mr Johnson wrote to European Union leaders to ask for an extension on Saturday after MPs beefed up the Benn Act aimed at averting a no-deal outcome.
European Council president Donald Tusk said he would recommend they agree a further delay in order to avoid a no-deal Brexit.

Irish premier Leo Varadkar affirmed his support for a delay in a call with Tusk, noting that "it would be possible for the U.K.to leave before January 31, 2020 if the Withdrawal Agreement has been ratified in advance of that date".
Mr Farage said it was the "same story every time" with Conservative leaders putting party interests above those of the country.
The government says such major amendments would wreck its legislation and it will withdraw the bill if the opposition plan succeeds.
"Boris Johnson said after last night's result that if it's a long extension, we're going to have to go for a General Election. That seems to me to be the only way to break this impasse".
"So, I think it's time for everybody now to behave in a mature manner and to get a timetable that works for everybody".
He can not call an election without the agreement of MPs and the election will be a battle with no certainty that he will get the majority he seeks.
Still, Johnson is justified in celebrating the fact that, for the first time in three years, Parliament has given a show of support to a Brexit plan.
Earlier on Tuesday, EU officials had made it clear they were waiting on word from Westminster, with the final decision resting with the EU's other 27 heads of state and government. Some in the Labour Party expect a short extension, with Brexit being resolved and then an election within months.
"Unless you are prepared to contemplate more expansive debate, there is not the slightest possibility of considering the deal that has been obtained within the time available", Ken Clarke, a senior lawmaker recently ousted from Johnson's Conservative Party group in Parliament, told the Guardian newspaper.
However, Jeffery believes Johnson has little intention of allowing the Commons to dictate the timetable because he has put so much emphasis on making Brexit happen on October 31.
