Thumbs down for PM May's Brexit deal

May's Brexit deal goes down in flames and the EU is singed

Prime Minister Theresa May lost her bid to bring the ill-fated Brexit deal through the House of Commons by a huge majority of 230 votes. The tally of 432-202 had 118 Conservatives voting against their own Prime Minister in the most lopsided government loss in history. Jeremy Corbyn, the opposition Labour immediately moved for a no-confidence vote. But despite her electoral drubbing Ms May will retain her post. In order to succeed a no-confidence motion requires a two-thirds majority.
