UK parliament rejects May’s “last chance” revised Brexit deal

British MPs rejected Theresa Mays’ amended agreement for withdrawal from the European Union Tuesday night by a vote of 391 to 242. The last -minute amendments she extracted from the EU in Brussels did not win the lawmakers around after they rejected the original deal. PM May responded that the government motion rejected on Tuesday was the only deal on offer. The parliament votes on Wednesday on withdrawal on March 29, without an agreement, which everyone agrees would be disastrous. While the opposition leader Labor’s Jeremy Corbyn called for a general election to remove the May government, other members proposed asking the Europeans for an extension of the withdrawal date, which May said “would not solve the problems we face” and/or a second referendum. The first referendum ended in a majority in favor of the UK quitting the EU.

    The only thing worse than a country where the government does not go along with the will of the people who voted to leave the EU, is an antisemitic Jeremy Corbyn of the Labor Party who might use the chaos in a general election to lead Britain while championing antisemitism about 73 years after Britain was liberated by the Allies from the Nazis after WWII.
