Theresa May's Third Attempt At A Brexit Deal Falls Short

UK Prime Minister Theresa May's Brexit deal was defeated on Friday for a third time, 344-286.

A significant number of Conservative Brexiteers switched to back May's withdrawal agreement with the European Union.

But the Democratic Unionist Party, which props up May's government, refused to budge.

The government's efforts to win over swathes of Labour members of Parliament also fell short.

Failure to pass the deal means the EU's offer of a Brexit delay until May 22 no longer stands.
