British Prime Minister Theresa May abruptly canceled her government’s required vote on her proposed Brexit deal Monday; throwing the future of the United Kingdom’s impending divorce with the European Union into question.
“British Prime Minister Theresa May is pulling a parliamentary vote set for Tuesday on her Brexit deal, the BBC reported, after repeated warnings from lawmakers that the scale of the expected defeat could sink her government,” writes Reuters.
“May and her ministers had repeatedly insisted the vote would go ahead as planned. Her spokeswoman briefed reporters on Monday that there was no plan to pull the vote,” adds the site.
