Brexit makes history: Government suffers biggest defeat ever

History was made at Westminster on Tuesday night when the government suffered the biggest ever parliamentary defeat. Prime Minister Theresa May’s Brexit deal was rejected by 432 votes to 202, a majority of 230 with 118 of those opposing the deal being from her own party. Opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn immediately announced he would table a vote of no-confidence in the government.

So we ask, what next?

In the 2016 referendum, across the boroughs of Croydon, Hackney, Tower Hamlets and Lewisham there was strong support for remain, with 65% of voters opting to stay in the EU. Two and a half years on, with the PM’s deal looking dead in the water, the general public have been taking to social media to voice their opinions.
