UK Parliament expected to reject Theresa May’s Brexit deal in crucial vote

The deal that prime minister Theresa May negotiated with the EU is widely opposed by MPs of her own Conservative party along with the opposition, and so her massive defeat in the vote on Jan. 15 is considered a foregone conclusion. Before the vote, she made an impassioned plea for support of the “will of the people,” arguing that the only options are uncertainty and loss, as the March 29 deadline for the UK to leave the EU ticks away. Opposition leader, Labor’s Jeremy Corbyn condemned the “botched deal” May negotiated, called for its resounding defeat and a general election. He may call for a no-confidence vote in the May government after the Brexit vote.
