Brexit: Theresa May faces no-confidence vote after a huge defeat

Picture: Tiocfaidh ár lá 1916

British Prime Minister Theresa May will face a motion of no confidence called by Labor leader Jeremy Corbyn on Wednesday.

The British Parliament rejected the Brexit agreement that Theresa May negotiated with the European Union yesterday by 202 votes in favor and 432 against.

“Jobs and NHS would be put at risk by a Labour government led by Jeremy Corbyn”

Currently, the Conservatives have 316 votes in UK’s Parliament — with 320 needed for a majority. Theresa May will need the support of the DUP party if she wants to keep her job.

If Theresa May lost today’s vote, the government would have 14 days to regain the confidence of the Parliament or, theoretically, Corbyn could seek to build a coalition in order to take charge — with majority support of the Parliament.
