In Britain, members of Parliament are voting today on Prime Minister Theresa May’s highly contested Brexit deal. On Monday, May made a final plea to members of Parliament to support the deal.
Prime Minister Theresa May: “No, it is not perfect, and, yes, it is a compromise. But when the history books are written, people will look at the decision—people—people will look—people will look at the decision of this house tomorrow and ask: Did we deliver on the country’s vote to leave the European Union? Did we safeguard our economy, our security and our union? Or did we let the British people down?”
It’s unclear what will happen if the deal is rejected, although some have said the U.K. could hold a second referendum on leaving the European Union. Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn has called for a general election and a “new government” if May fails to get parliamentary backing for the existing agreement.
