Members of the British Parliament have voted 391 to 242 to shoot down Prime Minister Theresa May’s EU withdrawal deal, for a second time, over her Brexit strategy.
The vote, this time showed a larger defeat than when they rejected it in January.
The Prime Minister had earlier warned the Parliamentarians that if they did not back her “improved deal” they risked “no Brexit at all.”
But she failed to convince enough of them those concessions she had agreed at the last minute with the EU were the “legally-binding” changes they had demanded when they rejected the deal by 230 votes in January.
Northern Ireland’s Democratic Unionist Party, which keeps her government in power, voted against the deal, along with Brexiteer Conservative backbenchers.
