The UK’s House of Commons rejected a government draft agreement for the exit of Great Britain from the European Union. 391 deputies voted against it, while 242 MPs voted in favor of the deal.
Carolyn Fairbarn of the Confederation of British Industry (CBI) said that “a new approach is necessary” and “it is time to stop this circus”. The general director of the British Chamber of Commerce, Adam Marshall emphasized that it was “absolutely obvious that neither the government nor many companies are prepared for a disordered exit from the European Union”.
It is impossible to predict how any further voting will end. If the parliament fails to support the government's proposed agreement and also does not agree to a brexit delay, the UK will automatically leave the EU without an agreement on March 29.
