The UK referendum was held in June 2016, where 17.4 million people opted for Brexit. This gave the Leave side 52%, compared with 48% for Remain.
On January 15, 2019, the U.K. House of Commons voted by a large margin to reject Prime Minister Theresa May’s deal setting out the terms of Britain’s withdrawal from the EU.
After three and a half years of negotiation, argument, predictions and posturing, lawmakers at last cast what is likely to be one of the most important votes in their careers, throwing Brexit into limbo with just 73 days until it is scheduled to take effect.
Thousands of Anti-Brexit and Pro-Brexit are seen protesting outside the Houses of Parliament on the day of the ‘meaningful vote’.
