Theresa May suffers historic defeat after MPs reject her Brexit deal – Business Insider

LONDON – Theresa May has suffered a historic defeat after her Brexit deal was rejected by MPs in the House of Commons by the largest margin in modern times.

The House of Commons voted by 432 to 202 against her Brexit deal, making it the biggest Commons defeat for a British government on record.

Both the Labour party and the SNP withdrew their amendments to the deal in order to ensure a clear result. An amendment by Brexiteer MP John Baron, that would have given the UK a unilateral right to end the controversial Northern Ireland Brexit backstop was also defeated.
