Theresa May suffers defeat again
- 1 week ago
British Prime Minister Theresa May has suffered yet another loss as her Brexit deal has been rejected by lawmakers by 149 votes, despite May achieving several reassurances from Brussels.
The route forward is still extremely uncertain but May has already promised two more votes for the U.K. Parliament.
Today and Thursday, respectively, lawmakers will get to vote on whether the U.K. should leave the 28-member bloc with no deal, or should request a delay to its departure date of March 29.
May confirmed that these votes would go ahead just seconds after her deal was overwhelmingly rejected for a second time.
The first vote on a no-deal scenario, where the U.K. crashes out of the bloc and has to rely on WTO trading rules, is highly likely to be rejected by politicians.
That being said, it’s not concrete and there’s still a possibility the U.K. could leave without a deal, even if they vote against it.
