Brexit: Theresa May’s deal is voted down in historic Commons defeat
23 minutes ago
Prime Minister Theresa May’s Brexit deal has been rejected by 230 votes – the largest defeat for a sitting government in history.
MPs voted by 432 votes to 202 to reject the deal, which sets out the terms of Britain’s exit from the EU on 29 March.
Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has now tabled a vote of no confidence in the government, which could trigger a general election.
The confidence vote is expected to be held at about 1300 GMT on Wednesday.
So what next? I have no idea…
Can the UK “Suck it up” enough to realize they need to just escape this mess and strike out in the world as an independent people once again?
At this point, the EU is just an abusive spouse looking for some last slaps and intimidation. The best thing the UK can do now is just leave, as fast as possible. IMHO at least.
