With 344 votes to 286, British lawmakers rejected Friday the British Prime Minister’s plan to withdraw from the E.U. driving the country towards a constitutional crisis. It comes despite May’s promise to Tory colleagues that she will resign if they back her deal. The pact wasn’t enough against votes from Labour opponents and government coalition partners the Democratic Unionist Party, who were determined not to support it.
Now what? May will have to go back to Brussels before Apr. 12 to request a further delay to negotiations, taking it beyond the current May 22 extension.
