But Jeremy Corbyn's tweet - after he helped the government's bill to trigger article 50 pass through the Commons with a majority of 372 - backfired spectacularly.

Meanwhile Christina Rees has moved on to shadow Secretary of State for Wales, replacing Cardiff Central MP Jo Stevens.

The Labour leader was forced into his latest reshuffle after four front benchers - Lewis, Rachael Maskell, Dawn Butler and Tulip Siddiq - all resigned over his three line whip on the Brexit bill.

UK's Prime Minister Theresa May has won a decisive vote in the British Parliament that will provide her the authority to officially start Brexit and initiate negotiations for exiting the European Union (EU).

A total of 52 MPs rebelled against Mr Corbyn's orders and voted against triggering Article 50, up from the 47 who opposed the legislation at second reading last week.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn was left damaged by the resignation of his highly-regarded Shadow Business Secretary Clive Lewis, who confirmed at the eleventh hour that he would not be following the party line.

The Labour proposals are another hurdle for May as she seeks to formally trigger two years of Brexit talks by the end of March. You didn't win a single concession but still voted for the bill.

"When I became the MP for Norwich South, I promised my constituents I would be Norwich's voice in Westminster, not Westminster's voice in Norwich", Lewis said.

"For this to happen on any Bill would be an abuse but on a Bill of this magnitude, with such huge constitutional significance - it is nothing short of an outrage". He said he "cannot, in all good conscience, vote for something I believe will ultimately harm the city I have the honour to represent, love and call home". "We've received no reassurances on environmental protections, European Union nationals' status here or the role of Parliament or the public in the post-referendum process". Usually this (Committee Stage) takes place outside the chamber with a small number of MPs; but a Committee of the whole House can be called for issues of constitutional importance, as in this instance.

Following the June vote, there was speculation that pro-European lawmakers might try to delay or even stop the Brexit process.
