British Prime Minister Theresa May wins confidence vote despite Brexit defeat
It looks like British Prime Minister Theresa May has survived — again.
May fended off a no-confidence vote in her government on Wednesday, a day after she suffered a crushing defeat in Parliament when lawmakers rejected her Brexit deal.
She won 325 to 306, with her Conservative Party and Northern Ireland’s Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) — whose partnership props her up government — backing her in the final count.
It was a defeat, of sorts, for the opposition. Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn called for the no-confidence vote on Tuesday, which forces members of Parliament to decide whether it supports May’s government, in an attempt to trigger general elections. But it ended up being a sideshow to the bigger, more pressing, and still-unresolved debate: what the heck to do about Brexit.
