British Prime Minister Theresa May survived a no-confidence vote in the House of Commons on Wednesday, a day after the stinging defeat there of her Brexit deal with the European Union. In the vote, 325 lawmakers said they had confidence in May's government, while 306 voted that they did not. While May withstood the challenge to her leadership, it is yet another indication that Brexit has thrown British politics into chaos. Jeremy Corbyn, the leader of the Labour Party, had called for the motion just after Tuesday's resounding vote against the Brexit deal that May had negotiated with the EU. That vote saw 202 members of Parliament side with May's plan, while 432 opposed it — the biggest defeat for a British government in Parliament in modern times.
