May's Brexit deal rejected by 230 votes

British Prime Minister Theresa May's Brexit deal has been rejected by 230 votes - the largest defeat for a sitting UK government in history, BBC reported.

MPs voted by 432 votes to 202 to reject the deal, which sets out the terms of Britain's exit from the EU on 29 March.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has now tabled a vote of no confidence in the government, which could trigger a general election.

Mrs May said she would make time for a debate on the motion on Wednesday.

Mr Corbyn said the confidence vote would allow the Commons to "give its verdict on the sheer incompetence of this government".

A Democratic Unionist Party source has told the BBC's Laura Kuenssberg they will back Mrs May in a confidence vote.

If MPs vote to back a no confidence motion, the government, or anyone else who can command a majority, would get 14 days to win a further confidence vote. If they can't win that, a general election will be then held.
