British lawmakers crush Theresa May’s Brexit deal by record margin

London (CNN)British lawmakers have soundly rejected Theresa May’s Brexit deal, in the biggest defeat for any UK government in the modern parliamentary era.

After 200 speeches across eight days of debate, members of the House of Commons ignored the Prime Minister’s final pleas and threw out the deal by 432 votes to 202.
The result — the worst defeat for a British government since 1924 — means the Prime Minister now faces a deep political crisis, with no clear path out of the mess.
