With just 73 days to go until Britain is scheduled to leave the European Union, lawmakers Tuesday overwhelmingly rejected — by a vote of 432 to 202 — the withdrawal deal painstakingly negotiated between Prime Minister and her European counterparts.

It was the largest defeat for a sitting government in history and showed just how unpopular the deal was.  The motion must be worded: “That this House has no confidence in Her Majesty’s Government.”

Politicians were voting on the deal Mrs May struck with the European Union after more than two years of negotiations.

It set out a plan for how the UK would leave the EU on 29 March.

This deal covered some hugely important issues such as what will happen to UK citizens living in the EU and how much money the UK will have to pay to leave.

What comes next?

The leader of the opposition, Jeremy Corbyn, has tabled what’s known as a vote of no confidence in the government. This lets MPs decide on whether they want the government to continue.

It will be held on Wednesday evening and, if parliament decides that it does not want the government to carry on, then it could trigger a general election.

If, as many analysts predict, Mrs May survives the vote then she says she will present parliament with a different Brexit plan on Monday.

If nothing else happens it will be a no-deal Brexit, This means – as you might expect – the UK leaving on 29 March without a formal agreement.

Mrs May could resign as leader of the Conservative Party, triggering an internal contest to replace her without a general election.

But remember, she defeated an attempt to oust her as leader of the Conservative Party in December, winning a confidence vote by 200 votes to 117.
