BREAKING: Parliament rejects PM May’s Brexit deal for a third time

The British Parliament has rejected the Brexit deal for a third time, intensifying the UK’s political chaos just two weeks before the country breaks up with the European Union.

Members of Parliament (MPs) defeated the deal, 286 to 344 — a much closer margin than the previous two votes in March and January, but still short of a majority. It has dealt another deep blow to the already flailing authority of Prime Minister Theresa May.

The UK is now slated to break up with the European Union on April 12 without a deal, unless it can come up with a new strategy before that date, potentially leading to a much, much longer Brexit extension.
