British Prime Minister Theresa May suffered a crushing defeat on Tuesday evening when her Brexit deal was voted down in the House of Commons with a historic majority of 230 votes.

Both Brexiteer and pro-EU MPs on both sides of the House voted against May’s deal for an exit from the EU, with no prospect of securing any sort of alternative before the UK’s departure in March.
