In Britain, lawmakers voted against an amended Brexit deal Tuesday in the latest blow to Prime Minister Theresa May. The vote comes just two-and-a-half weeks before the United Kingdom is scheduled to depart the European Union. Members of Parliament will vote later today on whether to back a dreaded “no-deal Brexit.” If that option is rejected, lawmakers could vote next to extend the current deadline of March 29, provided the European Union agrees. Some British citizens and members of Parliament have been calling for a new referendum on Brexit—which the opposition Labour Party indicated last month it may support.
