UK Prime Minister Theresa May Faces Impeachment Threats, As MPs Reject Brexit Deal

UK Prime Minister Theresa May has suffered the biggest loss in the country’s history as members of parliament rejected her Brexit deal by an overwhelming 230 votes.
The parliamentarians were quick to make it obvious that they do not support May’s deal, despite the fact that there is just 72 days left till Britain’s Exit from the EU is triggered.
The parliament who voted today, according to BBC, decided 432 votes to 202 to reject the deal, which sets out the terms of Britain’s exit from the EU on March 29.
The last time this kind of defeat was suffered by a sitting government was in 1924 during the minority Labour government of that era.
A vote of no confidence in the government , which expectedly would lead to a general election in the country, was immediately called for by Jeremy Corbyn, leader of the opposition party,
“This is a catastrophic defeat. The house has delivered its verdict on her deal. Delay and denial has reached the end of the line,” Corbyn said.
