Theresa May remains Britain’s prime minister after no-confidence vote
British Prime Minister Theresa May survived a no-confidence vote from her party that would have unseated her as its leader. She promised to step down before the next election, but she wants to deliver on Brexit.
May has been meeting with E.U. leaders in Brussels, trying to figure out a way to make the Brexit deal she’s proposed more palatable to lawmakers back home. And, she has to persuade lawmakers in Britain to approve it so Brexit can happen.
William Booth is the London bureau chief for The Post. He tells Martine Powers how, though so much has happened, there’s still no vote on Brexit.
