Labour table no confidence vote in UK government as Theresa May loses Brexit deal vote by majority of 230

MAY DAY: Theresa May narrowly survived a no-confidence vote on Wednesday night
LOSS: Theresa May suffered one of the worst parliamentary defeats of any British Prime Minister ever over her Brexit deal

LABOUR leader Jeremy Corbyn has tabled a vote of no confidence after Prime Minister Theresa May suffered a historic defeat over her Brexit deal in Parliament.

MPs voted down May’s deal by 432 votes to 202 in the House of Commons, a majority of 230.

Corbyn said: “This is a catastrophic defeat. The house has delivered its verdict on her deal. Delay and denial has reached the end of the line.”

May admitted that a no confidence vote could be voted on as soon as next Wednesday, but said the vote did not show what deal MPs were willing to support.

She added that she would hold talks with the DUP and ‘senior parliamentarians from across the house to identify what will be required to secure support’.

It comes as May warned ahead of the vote that there was no alternative to her Brexit deal.

Meanwhile, the arrangements for Gibraltar, which is set to leave the EU with the UK, are thrown into turmoil.

Known as Memorandums of Understanding (MoU) they cover fluidity, the environment, law enforcement, tobacco and tax.
