The Brexit deal defeat: What happens next?

The Brexit deal defeat: What happens next? The deed has been done. The House of Commons killed off, permanently, the hostage to fortune that Theresa May presented as the EU Withdrawal Agreement. The vote, 202 in favour and 432 against, was the largest defeat suffered by a government in English political history. Of the government’s own 318 Members of Parliament, two deputy Speakers do not vote and two others are “tellers” – which leaves 314 Conservative MP...

Parliament Rejects May’s Brexit Deal

The Brexit deal painstakingly negotiated by British prime minister Theresa May over the past two years was rejected overwhelmingly by Parliament on Tuesday. The deal, which fell in a 432–202 vote in the House of Commons, represented the only established path forward to prevent a so-called “no-deal” British exit from the European Union, which is set to take place in March and would likely result in massive political and economic upheaval. In response to the historic defeat, Labour leader Jeremy...

May Loses Brexit Vote in Landslide, Faces Confidence Vote

Prime Minister Theresa May’s Brexit deal was rejected by Parliament in a humiliating defeat, her plan for leaving the European Union all but dead. The House of Commons voted 432 versus 202 against the divorce the U.K. government brokered with the European Union. A margin of less than 60 would have given grounds to hope that the deal was salvageable, with the EU poised to engage in ways to make it more palatable.
