UK Parliament Rejects "No Deal" Brexit, Extension Next
The chaos in Westminster continues. By a four vote margin, 312 to 308, Parliament has rejected a "no deal" Brexit.
The vote revealed the deep fracture in Theresa May's Conservative caucus. Some pundits contend this is the end of the political trail for Theresa May. She's also in trouble when she heads to Brussels next week where some members of the European parliament are already speaking out against any request from the British government for a section 50 postponement. Their position is, if May's Parliament doesn't know what it wants, why should the EU cater to them?
Nigel Farage and his Leave camp are already calling May and the rest "traitors." Farage is certainly inciting his mob, even on his LBC radio show this morning from his studio in Strasbourg.
It is chaos and that's going to continue, perhaps even worsen, in the weeks and months ahead.
