Embarrassing loss for Theresa May.

 

The prime minister endured an embarrassing defeat in the House of Commons as MPs voted against her approach to Brexit.

Theresa May brought a motion forward to reiterate support over the Irish backstop.  

She lost the vote by 303-258 after failing to win the support of Tory Brexiteers in the European Research Group (ERG), the result makes it more likely that the UK could leave the bloc with no deal come March 29th.  

The Pound fell to $1.281 this morning. Sterling fell to 1.136 against the Euro.

 

Data to look out today.   

Not much data due out today.
