British MPs vote by a majority of 211 to delay departure from EU

British MPs have voted by 413 to 202 – a majority of 211 – for Prime Minister Theresa May to ask the EU for a delay to Brexit.

It means the UK may not now leave on 29 March as previously planned.

Mrs May says Brexit could be delayed by three months, to 30 June, if MPs back her deal in a vote next week.

If they reject her deal again then she says she will seek a longer extension – but any delay has to be agreed by the 27 other EU member states.

    May May shelve Brexit once and for all. Stay in the EU. It’s like asking Dominica to vote against and withdraw from the OECS. No, we cannot. That’s the problem in Great Britain.

      Exactly!!! But Don’t underestimate the British though. They have built themselves up into a powerful force especially in the trade market for decades, centuries even. So much so that countries especially those in the Caribbean will be affected by any turn in the UK economy. It’s a fait accompli.
