British prime minister suffers yet another major Brexit defeat
British Prime Minister Theresa May has suffered yet another Brexit defeat. In the U.K.’s House of Commons, May’s plan for withdrawal from the European Union was rejected by 391 votes to 242—marking the second time, in recent months, that a May deal on Brexit was rejected by members of Parliament.
On Monday night, May was hoping that her latest plan for a Brexit deal would be approved. But she still couldn’t win over MPs when it came down to a vote.
At issue in the vote was exactly how the U.K. will withdraw from the EU. And in the weeks ahead, U.K. lawmakers will vote on whether to exit the EU without a deal — a course of action that many observers fears would be disastrous.
The U.K. is due to leave the EU on March 29.
