The UK House of Commons voted 432 to 202 today to reject Prime Minister Theresa May’s Brexit deal.
Speaking about the vote, Theresa May said "tonight's vote tells us nothing about what it does support, nothing about how or even if it intends to honour the decision that people took in a referendum".
"EU citizens here and UK citizens in the EU deserve clarity as soon as possible, as do businesses and ordinary people,” she added.
The focus now is confirming whether the government still has Parliament's confidence, she says, and the government will make time tomorrow to debate a no confidence motion if one is tabled by the Labour party.
“If a deal is impossible, and no one wants no deal, then who will finally have the courage to say what the only positive solution is?” President of the European CouncilDonald Tusk said in a Twitter post.
