The British Parliament rejected a Treaty on “breccia”. Theresa may on the verge of retirement
The British house of Commons has launched major political upheaval, the vast majority of votes rejecting agreed by the British government and the European Union the draft Treaty on the withdrawal of Britain from the EU. The opposition initiated a vote of no confidence in the government.
