Theresa May’s Brexit deal has been voted down for a third time by MPs. Parliament rejected the Prime Minister’s withdrawal agreement by 344 to 286 votes, a margin of 58. May said it is a ‘matter of profound regret that once again we have been unable to support leaving the EU in an orderly manner’. The PM also hinted at the possibility of an early general election: ‘I fear we are reaching the limits of the process in this House,’ she told MPs. The EU reacted to May’s third defeat in Parliament by calling an emergency Brexit summit on April 10, just days before Britain could leave the EU under a no-deal scenario.
