British Prime Minister Theresa May on Wednesday cleared a vote of no confidence, surviving with a vote of 325-306. That means the current government will stay in place, and May will have until Monday to lay out a new Brexit plan. On Tuesday, Britain's lower house of Parliament voted 432-202 to reject the deal she had made with the European Union. Tuesday's 230-vote loss was a record, smashing the 166-vote loss a previous government suffered in 1924. May told lawmakers she was pleased with the result, which will require her to carve out a new plan to navigate the U.K.'s planned exit from the EU in March. Following the vote, Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn said the government should remove the prospect of a no-deal Brexit, which May declined to do.
