British PM May Faces Embarrassing Brexit Defeat In Upper House

Apr 17, 2018

On Wednesday, Britain’s upper house of parliament is expected to inflict an embarrassing defeat on Theresa May’s government, challenging her refusal to remain in a customs union with the European Union after Brexit. The prime minister, who has struggled to unite her Conservatives over Brexit, has said Britain will leave the EU’s single market and customs union, so that London can negotiate its own free trade deals.
