The vote wasn’t even close, Theresa May’s Brexit deal negotiation went down in flames in the British Parliament just moments ago. The final vote was 202-432, marking it the end of the EU-UK negotiations.
On the 29th of March, the UK will be leaving the European Union and effectively severing all ties with the economic (and increasingly dictatorial) federation. Parliament will have to vote to rescind the declaration of intent to leave if they want to avert this event.
However, should that come to pass, they would be in flagrant violation of the 2016 BREXIT referendum where the people of the UK voted to leave the European Union.
Prime Minister Theresa May will be speaking shortly about her defeat and where she plans to take her country from here.
The European Union commission is not happy, releasing a statement shortly after the vote count was released:
The risk of a disorderly withdrawal of the UK has increased with this evening's vote. While we do not want this to happen, we will continue our contingency work to help ensure EU is fully prepared.
