      May suffers heavy defeat during crucial Brexit vote

      Prime Minister Theresa May suffered the largest defeat for a sitting government in history after the House of Commons rejected with a majority of 230 her Brexit plan. According to British media MPs voted by 432 votes to 202 to reject the deal. What is even worse for May's current position as a PM - 118 Tory lawmakers joined with opposition parties and voted against her which now creates a political vacuum in the Brexit process, with no firm certainty as to what might happen next. As a result the leader of the opposition Labor Party, Jeremy Corbyn, announced that he has tabled a no confidence motion against May, which is expected get debated and voted upon tomorrow.

      MPs will vote on Theresa May's Brexit deal on Tuesday, 15 January, government sources claim. The announcement comes after the British leader said on Sunday that since the vote was pulled at the last minute in December, she's been consulting with EU leaders and British colleagues to get new assurances in three key areas, the details of which will be laid out in the coming days. Those three areas include specific measures for Northern Ireland, a greater role for parliament in negotiations on the next stage of future UK-EU relations, and further assurances from the EU to address concerns over the Irish backstop.
