New Delhi, Jan 16 (ANI): British Prime Minister Theresa May suffered a humiliating defeat as her controversial Brexit deal plan, that allows the United Kingdom to leave the European Union, was voted down by the MPs at the House of Commons by a resounding majority of 230 on Tuesday. The deal was voted down by 432 votes to 202, the worst defeat for any sitting government in the UK. Around 118 Conservative Party MPs voted against May's Brexit plan, CNN reported. Labour Party leader and Leader of Opposition in the UK Parliament, Jeremy Corbyn, tabled a no-confidence motion against May that is expected to be heard at the House of Commons on Wednesday. The British PM urged the parliamentarians to put party politics aside and think about the future. For long, May has been pushing for the Brexit deal to be accepted by the UK Parliament.
