Historic loss may be final blow for May and her Brexit plan

Members of Parliament voted today on the Brexit plan proposed by British Prime Minister Theresa May for the United Kingdom’s departure from the European Union according to a Guardian report.

The UK’s departure is set to take place on March 29th with or without an agreed plan, the latter scenario has the potential to be catastrophic for the UK and its 3.6 million EU citizens as well as the Britons living in the EU.

It was widely held that Theresa May was expected to lose the vote by a wide margin — some predicting the bill would be defeated by between 100 or 200 votes.

The votes came in with UK Prime Minister Theresa May’s Brexit plan being crushed by 432 votes to 202, a historic defeat.

Opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn has tabled a no confidence vote for Wednesday, it’s unclear what happens next with Britain’s exit from the European Union 73 days away.

    Teresa , has to pay a political price, that have left many before her diminished . Her decisions as home secretary made our people, the WINDRUSH generation persona non grata . Like Magarite Thatcher, her last days will be both physical and spiritual bondage. her actions, as prime Minister, have brought pain and horror to Caribbean Blacks. Most of us can do as much as we want , but not as long as we would like too , a tremendous message to be adhered .

      @ Bob pennis, You will notice “P and not D” at your name it means that you should always get facts before ignorance, Teresa may had apsolutly nothing to do with Windrush generations she just happened to be home secretary a few years ago and most of the blame fell mainly on the Windrush generation for not renewing their passports when ask to do so long before Mrs Teresa May was again home secretary.

    There’re countries that are by far worse off than the UK,US, Australia and many of the advance nations and they do not complain like these folks rather than throw their hands up and say thank GOD for HIS favors upon them they’re paying HIM back by gripping,as they would say….that was the complaining,that’s what they ask for and HE allow them to have it.Now their heads are spinning in their mess…Good take it…
    America needs to take a page outta their book…

    America should take a page outta the UK book…GOD controls the affairs of man and some most certainly will learn that the hard way whilst I’m afraid some just won’t get it..That’s what complaining does..Oh they want to take back their country,close their borders no immigrants..GOD is the ONE who does the blessings and if HE know that,HE did not bless these countries with an abundance so as they’re able to bless others hence HIS pipe line of blessings remains open for them and HIS blessings cont. to flow,HE would have never directed waves of immigrants to their shores..HE never gives us more than we can bear.And so,they keep complaining complaining complaining.When the children of Israel were complaining they thought that ,they were beating up on Moses.Little do they knew they were complaining against JEHOVAH ( GOD ) Moses was depending upon HIM for his blessings as well..Complaining GOD takes very seriously.What became of them.HE destroyed many of them for that..There are…

    The father says: All of creation speak of my glory, I desire a deeper conversation with you so you must come up higher. Your time and existence in a body is finite. Release the mind of negative thinking, you are being perfected. Rest in me, I am not a task master, balance is essential to bring in your atmosphere. Allow your day to be your joy of pleasing me and not others, listen to the instructions that I am speaking to you. Too many are looking at how things used to be, but I say look for what is to come. If you want to move with my spirit do not despise what I do for another, small beginnings will be magnified in my house.
    Attitude is a vital key, even when you cause your own calamity, I will rescue you. Do you trust me, in the next ninety-days you rewards and favor are upon you in this season? See me , hear me, I have purpose in this day, if you look for me you will find me. A great awakening of revelation is taking place in you. Take heart, a promotion…

    David Cameron made the biggest political blunder when he put brexit vote to referandum. Ill advised and ill informed. Let the brits take there beating. They will run and try to take more control of the commonwealth. Watxh and see.

    These representatives certainly have the guts to stand up to the NWO and Agenda 21 even though there will be repercussions. But there will be repercussions anyway. That is sadly lacking in the US and elsewhere. People have to stand up now because it is already late in the game and they are coming on strong and fast.

      I don’t necessarily agree that the representatives are standing up to anything. I believe that they all regret the vote to leave the EU and now they are just voting against any plans just because. If you realize all the people who were actively pushing Brexit all quit politics or went quiet once it passed. As the saying goes ” Its at that moment they knew they had messed up”.

    This is what Putin wanted, he wants to bring down western governments, he is trying to do the same thing in the United States with his puppet Trump. Putin has his people working inside the USA, UK, Germany, and France.

      I have to agree that all this does is creat a vacuum not only for Russia but for China to fill. They are already positioning themselves in the Caribbean. People need to open their eyes and see that’s not a joke and we all need to be concerned. Especially with our government snuggling up with both countries. Remember they never give you anything for free. I guess time will tell but I’ll hope for the best.
