Theresa May government survives no-confidence vote after Brexit failure
London, Jan 17: Theresa May government survived no-confidence vote moved by Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn a day after the crushing defeat for Brexit deal. Theresa May comfortably won the no-confidence vote, by 325 to 306 - a majority of 19.
Theresa May has just announced that she wants to start talks with the leaders of the opposition parties tonight about a way forward on Brexit.
"The government approaches these meetings in a constructive spirit and I urge others to do the same. But we must find solutions that are negotiable and command sufficient support in this House," she said.
Labour Party Jeremy Corbyn leader said he does not want to start talks with Theresa May until she rules out a no-deal Brexit.
A day before British lawmakers voted overwhelmingly to reject Brexit deal by a margin of 230 votes. With this, Prime Minister Theresa May sustained the largest ever House of Commons defeat for the Government.
