    Brexit Brief: Embattled Prime Minister dealt fresh blow by own MPs

    U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May suffered yet another Brexit defeat on Thursday, as pro-leave politicians refused to support her European Union withdrawal strategy in a parliamentary vote. A majority of 45 British politicians rejected a motion that reiterated government plans to seek changes to the so-called Irish backstop — the contentious plan to avoid a hard border in Ireland — and swerve a no-deal Brexit. The move has broken the party’s fragile truce over Brexit, with pro-EU Conservatives taking to the airwaves last night and this morning to complain about the inability of their Brexiteer colleagues to compromise.

    U.K. Parliament rejects Prime Minister May's Brexit strategy

    The British Parliament on Thursday rejected U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May's Brexit strategy, adding to the government's tally of lost parliamentary votes, as expected. Prime Minister May had aimed for a re-endorsement of her plan to secure changes to the Brexit deal she agreed with the European Union late last year, which would allow the U.K. to avoid a hard, no-deal Brexit. May's initial deal was rejected by Parliament in January, though lawmakers also voted in favor of avoiding a hard Brexit. Amendments are not legally binding but indicate a government's viability and support. The defeat adds to May's poor performance in parliamentary votes over the past months. May was not in Parliament to respond to the defeat. The U.K. is slated to exit the EU on March 29. As of now, no deal governing the U.K. trade and other relations with Brussels is in place. The British pound reacted little to the vote, holding its losses, last at $1.2806, down 0.3%. Similarly, the euro held its gains against sterling, buying £0.8821, up 0.6%

    British Prime Minister Theresa May faces a Valentine’s Day defeat in the U.K. parliament, as pro-Brexit politicians threaten to reject her Brexit strategy in a vote this evening. Brexit-backing MPs are threatening to sabotage what the British government had hoped would be a simple re-endorsement of May’s plan to secure changes to her EU withdrawal deal, which center around a contentious plan to avoid a hard border in Ireland. Pro-Brexit parliamentarians object to the latter, arguing that exiting the European Union without a deal might be the best option for the U.K.
