In Britain, lawmakers rejected a resolution Wednesday that would see the United Kingdom exit the European Union without a formal agreement—a so-called no-deal Brexit—setting up a vote Thursday that could see Parliament ask the EU for an extension of Brexit’s March 29 deadline. Joining opposition parties in Wednesday’s vote were members of Prime Minister Theresa May’s own Conservative Party, adding to speculation that May could soon face another no-confidence vote. Parliament’s repeated failures to approve a Brexit plan have fueled calls for a new, second referendum on Brexit.
