British PM Theresa May Survives No-Confidence Vote

HeadlineJan 17, 2019

British Prime Minister Theresa May survived a no-confidence vote in the House of Commons Wednesday, one day after her Brexit plan to withdraw from the European Union was crushed in an historic defeat. It’s the first time a British leader has held power after losing such an important parliamentary battle. This is Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn, speaking just after lawmakers signaled their confidence in the prime minister.

Jeremy Corbyn: “Last night, the House rejected the government’s deal emphatically. A week ago, the House voted to condemn the idea of a no-deal Brexit. Before there can be any positive discussions about the way forward, the government—the government must remove—must remove, clearly, once and for all, the prospect of the catastrophe of a no-deal Brexit from the EU and all the chaos that would come as a result of that.”

There’s no clear path forward for Britain, which has just 10 weeks before a deadline to withdraw from the EU.
