May's deal rejected for a second time

Tonight MPs voted against Theresa May’s deal (242 in favour versus 391 against).

The deal was voted on shortly after legally binding changes to the backstop arrangement were announced. The deal would have allowed the UK to leave the EU in a managed way on the 29th March.
