Theresa May’s Brexit deal rejected for 3rd time

British lawmakers on Friday voted to reject Prime Minister Theresa May’s Brexit deal, which has already been rejected twice in Parliament since January. MPs voted 286 to 344 to turn down the Withdrawal Agreement and delay Brexit to May 22. May said that the implications of the vote’s outcome are “grave” after she was defeated by a majority of 58.

At the request of the British government, MPs were asked to vote Friday only on the 585-page Withdrawal Agreement, which was concluded in November 2018 between London and the EU after long and painful negotiations. The Brexit deal sets out the terms of Britain’s departure from the European Union. May’s Brexit deal was rejected in the House of Commons by a record 230 votes in January and by 149 earlier this month. After Friday’s vote, Jeremy Corbyn, leader of the opposition Labour Party, said that the House of Commons is responsible to seek for a better deal, and went further to call for a general election in the country.
