Brexit Deal Voted Down By Parliament

According to Reuters, Britain’s parliament rejected Prime Minister Theresa May’s Brexit deal for a second time.

The latest vote was held only 17 days before the United Kingdom is scheduled to depart the European Union.

This time, the House of Commons voted 391-to-242 against Prime Minister May's withdrawal agreement negotiated with EU officials.

But this margin of defeat was smaller than the first one PM May faced.

Back in January, the parliament rejected her Brexit deal by a margin of 230 votes.
