MPs have defeated Prime Minister Theresa May’s government today (Dec 13th), voting to change her Brexit blueprint in a move which could complicate her efforts to sever ties with the European Union.
In a blow to Mrs. May's already diminished authority, eleven Tory rebels defied the party line, and the parliament voted 309 to 305 in favour of an amendment to demand that parliament pass a separate bill to approve any final deal with the EU.
One of the Tory rebels, ex minister Stephen Hammond, was immediately fired as a vice-chairman of the Conservative Party.
