Another Brexit Defeat For Theresa May

According to CNN, British Prime Minister Theresa May was dealt another humiliating defeat Thursday as lawmakers voted against the latest incarnation of her Brexit plan.

While the vote was merely symbolic, parliament's refusal to back her approach to negotiations on Britain's withdrawal from the European Union represented another setback for the government, one month after lawmakers roundly rejected her initial Brexit deal.

The parliamentary vote also undermined May's pledge to the EU that if it renegotiates its deal with Britain, she can get that revised agreement approved by parliament.
