The Brexit deal failed. What happens now?
With 10 weeks to go before the United Kingdom is set to leave the European Union, it’s unclear how—or whether—the U.K. will do it. Theresounding defeatof British Prime Minister Theresa May’s exit deal by the British Parliament on Tuesday “means there has to be a serious rethinking of the deal,” saidMai’a Cross, an associate professor of political science and international affairs at Northeastern whose research centers on European foreign and security policy.
“In my view, there really is no version of the deal that will satisfy a majority of people,” Cross said. “This is a really, really difficult situation that doesn’t have an outcome that will satisfy all the various concerns over Brexit.”
Members of the British Parliament on Tuesdayvoted 432 to 202 againstMay’s plan to withdraw the U.K. from the EU in what’s become known as Brexit.
