May loses key Brexit vote in British parliament

London: British Prime Minister Theresa May lost a key Brexit vote in parliament today after a group of her own MPs rebelled, a blow for the government on the eve of a crucial EU summit.

Lawmakers voted 309 to 305 in favour of an amendment to the government’s EU (Withdrawal) Bill demanding an explicit legal guarantee be included to grant MPs a vote on any Brexit deal signed with Brussels.
