British Prime Minister Theresa May suffered another embarrassing defeat on Thursday (14 February) after MPs voted against her Brexit strategy for the second time.
Prime Minister Theresa May begged MPs to ‘hold their nerve’ and give her more time to secure a Brexit deal on Tuesday (12 February).

The British prime minister took a step that is likely to complicate relations with frustrated officials in Brussels.
European Union lawmakers have vowed to reject any Brexit deal that does not include an "all-weather backstop” to avoid the return of a hard border on the island of Ireland.
The referendum to leave the European Union was won on a promise to “take back control.” On the Continent, we wonder whether the British have lost not only control but their minds.
Speaker John Bercow has overturned precedent to give the British Parliament a bigger role in Brexit.
