    MPs Reject No Deal Brexit

    Parliament voted Wednesday by 312 to 308 not to leave the European bloc without a withdrawal agreement in place. It follows MPs rejection on Tuesday of Theresa May’s latest negotiation with the E.U., ironing out details around the Irish backstop. Amid growing frustration in Brussels, several top European officials warned that there is no more they can do to ensure an orderly Brexit.

    What’s next? Lawmakers will vote on Thursday on whether to delay the withdrawal date until May 22. While the vote today carries political weight, it is not legally binding, which means a no-deal Brexit could still occur if a divorce agreement is not ratified.
