UK:15/2:(odiannews):British Prime Minister Theresa May suffered an embarrassing defeat by lawmakers Thursday in a vote that left her bid to secure a European Union divorce deal stuck between an intransigent EU and a resistant U.K. Parliament — with Brexit just six weeks away. The House of Commons voted by 303 votes to 258 against a motion reiterating support for May,s approach to Brexit — support expressed by lawmakers in votes just two weeks ago.The government was defeated when hard-line pro-Brexit lawmakers in the governing Conservatives abstained because they feel the government is effectively ruling out the threat of leaving the European Union without an agreement on departure terms and future relations, a move they say undermines Britain,s bargaining position.
